Neil Patrick Harris Neil Patrick Harris

Neil Patrick Harris is already God's gift to awards shows, so he may as well be a gift to your friends and family as well.

Harris, the current undisputed king of hosting awards shows, got a little cocky-in a charming way, of course-in his first promo for his gig as Oscars host. The How I Met Your Mother star and Tony winner told viewers that instead of giving out presents this holiday season, they should just give the gift of "telling them to watch [Harris] host the Oscars."

This will be Harris' first time hosting the Oscars, but don't count on seeing any nerves. He's played emcee for the Tony Awards four times, the Emmys twice, and the Spike Video Game Awards once.

The 87th Academy Awards will be broadcast live on Feb. 22 at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT on ABC.
