Oscars 2015: Neil Patrick Harris' Opening Song
Welcome to the 87th Annual Academy Awards -- as host Neil Patrick Harris put it, within seconds of the show's launch: "Tonight we honor Hollywood's best and whitest - sorry, brightest." Too true!

NPH continued, quickly moving into his big musical opening number, "Wow, check out this place. Check out everything..." The classic Oscars opener honored moving pictures, including a duet with "Into the Woods" star Anna Kendrick and an interruption from Jack Black, who rose from the audience to yell-sing at them.

It was a very old-school opening, in the best of ways, focusing on what the Oscars are supposed to be about -- celebrating movies and why we love them -- while also giving fans the class, humor and Ben & Matt shout-outs they'd expect from NPH.
