Neil Patrick Harris as Emmys Host: How Did He Do?

by at . Comments

He may have taken the stage with four past hosts to kick off the 2013 Emmy Awards, but make no mistake:

Neil Patrick Harris was the man in charge of Hollywood last night.

How did the How I Met Your Mother star do as emcee of television's biggest night?

He zinged Paula Deen (saying she must now refer to Orange is the New Black as "Orange Is the New African American."). He mocked Jimmy Fallon for some "gay" dancing. He turned down a demand from Amy Poehler to "Twerk it."

He was generally safe and cordial, relying more on his general charm than any over-the-top sketch or jokes.

Is that what you look for in an Emmys host? Sound off now and let us know what you thought of NPH on stage?
