Neil Patrick Harris should host EVERY awards show!
Neil Patrick Harris is becoming a professional awards-show host.
In addition to his repeat stint hosting Broadway's Tony Awards on June 9, CBS has tapped him for a second time as host of the Emmy Awards on Sept. 26.
Harris, who stars in the network's comedy How I Met Your Mother, ending its run next May, hosted the Emmys in 2009, the last time CBS aired the awards, which are shared by the four major networks on a rotating basis. Each typically picks a star who appears elsewhere on their network: Jimmy Kimmel hosted last year, when the awards aired on ABC; Fox chose Jane Lynch (Glee) in 2011 and NBC picked Jimmy Fallon in 2010.
