Photo: Emmys Host Neil Patrick Harris Personally Rolls Out The Red Carpet
Wow, the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences sure makes their awards show hosts work: Today Neil Patrick Harris, emcee of the upcoming telecast for the 65th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards, did the dirty work of personally rolling out the red carpet at L.A. Live.
In what looks like a dance number, Harris was joined by producer Ken Ehrlich and Academy chairman Bruce Rosenblum for the ceremonial event signaling the official countdown to the really big show Sunday night. That very same red carpet will be trod upon ahead of the show by television stars dressed to the nines (and their assistants dressed to fade into the background) who hope to not have their fashion choices trod upon by clever pundits. Come on, guys: The anticipation is palpable, right? No?
Harris, who is beloved for his debonair hosting chez The Tony Awards, told the Hollywood Reporter the show is so far running a bit long (shocker) and that he hopes he isn't too vanilla. Perhaps today's carpet dance was just a warm-up: NPH says he's got to do some dancing for the show, too:
