However, the host of the 2016 Oscars is still unknown. This year, Neil Patrick Harris made his host debut at the Oscars and got mixed response (mostly negative) for his dull hosting skills.
Neil has reportedly said that he will not host Oscars again. In 2014, Ellen DeGeneres hosted Oscars for the second time and is still one of the best hosts.
