The Oscars are almost upon us and we're sure somewhere host Neil Patrick Harris is a little nervous. Last year's host, Ellen DeGeneres, did a bang-up job and he has some huge shoes to fill. We're sure he'll do fine, and his hosting is one of our most anticipated aspects of this year's fete.
What else are we eager to see?
We present the 7 most anticipated moments that we're sure will have the world chatting the morning of February 23 after all those awards are handed out February 22.

Red Carpet Turn Around?
With all the controversy that has made headlines of late about women being asked different questions than men on the red carpet and how that needs to change, we wonder if it will at all this year on the red carpet at the Oscars. No matter how many times reporters get lectured by interviewees about "appropriate" questions for women versus men, we think "Who are you wearing?" will still be heard incessantly.
Neil Patrick Harris As Host
What Neil Patrick Harris has done with the Tonys is nothing short of amazing. When we heard that Harris was hosting the Oscars, we thought it was a match made in heaven. After last year’s stellar turn by Ellen DeGeneres, her good friend has his work cut out for him. But, if there’s anyone who knows how to raise the bar when it comes to awards show hosting, it’s Neil Patrick Harris. We. Can’t. Wait.
Lady Gaga Is Performing
Lady Gaga is performing at the Oscars! What will she sing? Who cares? It’s what she does on that stage that is what people will be talking about for days after.
Everything Is Awesome Live!
Although we think Glory from Selma will win Best Song, we cannot wait to see The LEGO Movie theme, Everything Is Awesome, performed live by Tegan and Sara and The Lonely Island (Andy Samberg singing at the Oscars? Yes, please!). With the backdrop of The LEGO Movie, prepare to be visually amazed and super amused by what occurs when that Oscar-nominated song is performed live.
Two Categories, Tight Races
We finally get the answers to who will win Best Actor (Eddie Redmayne for The Theory of Everything or Michael Keaton for Birdman) and Best Picture (Boyhood or Birdman).
What Will Eddie Murphy Do?
Eddie Murphy famously left the Oscars mid ceremony when he did not win the Best Supporting Actor trophy for Dreamgirls. Given that he finally returned to SNL after decades recently, and now he’s presenting at this year’s Oscars, we are wondering, what he will do? What will he say? Or maybe, he’ll just show up, read the nominees, give the award and walk away.
