Neil Patrick Harris


Neil Patrick Harris arrives to host the 63rd annual Trios, the awards show for celebrities with three names.

Winners this year included Sarah Jessica Parker, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Sarah Michelle Gellar, James Earl Jones, David Lee Roth and Tommy Lee Jones (tie), and Jamie Lee Curtis and Kathie Lee Gifford (tie).

Other highlights of the telecast included a musical tribute to Ruth Bader Ginsburg, an arm wrestling match between Catherine Zeta Jones and historian Doris Kearns Goodwin, a performance by the Joyce Carol Oates Dancers, and Billy Dee Williams jumping a motorcycle over Andrew Lloyd Webber, Mary Tyler Moore, and David Hyde Pierce.

Great job, Neil, and congratulations to all the winners!  Speedy recovery, Mr. Hyde Pierce!

  1. It all ended quickly when the ghost of Lee Harvey Oswald showed up.

    Also, is it "Awards Show" or "Award Show"? I don't know if I've ever seen it written, and back to back S's is hard to hear.

    1. Along with Mr. Oswald, James Earl Ray and Mark David Chapman have been banned by The Academy of Triple Name Arts & Sciences.

      I think probably "Awards." If you watched the telecast, you'll remember that more than one award was handed out.

    2. They give out many statuettes but it's only one award. The "Oscar" The "Emmy" The "Tony". I guess it could be "Award's Show" because it's really Oscar's night. And yes my argument is a load of Bulls hit.

  2. I've met Doris Kearns Goodwin. She'd win that arm wrestling match for sure!

    I once considered getting my David Hyde Pierced, but I decided it would be too painful. Heck, I'm still recuperating from my drunken decision to get my Pierced Brosnan. Damn you, tequila!

    1. Just be careful watching tonight's musical guest, The Pierces.

    Thanks for the warning, Steve. I'll be sure to sterilize myself with plenty of alcohol first!
    (Damn you tequila! Damn you straight to hell!)
