Los Angeles: Neil Patrick Harris has admitted that he is nervous about his first hosting stint at the upcoming Academy Awards but feels it is much less perssure than being a nominee. The 41-year-old 'How I Met Your Mother' star is hosting the 87th Oscar Awards on February 22.
 
The actor spoke about anchoring the award ceremony in an op-ed piece for The New York Times Magazine. "I'll admit that I'm nervous to host, but it's much less pressure than being a nominee.
"Your heart's pounding and you have 15 names that you pray to God you don't forget? and your name's not called," Harris said.
 
The Emmy-winning actor said even winning at times is stressful. "Or, even stranger, your name is called, and you're blinded by adrenaline and panic. That's much more nerve-racking to me than going out and saying, 'Our next two presenters are the stars of this movie, please welcome Brad and Angelina,'" he wrote.
