Hugh Jackman Gives Neil Patrick Harris Kudos For Hosting

Actor Hugh Jackman, did such a great job hosting the last Academy Awards ceremony, that the writing team behind his Oscar song and dance opening, took home an Emmy this year.

As for the host of the 2009 Emmy Awards, Hugh had nothing but good things to say of Master of Ceremonies, Neil Patrick Harris when he was congratulated for his award

Hugh gushes to Newsweek of the How I Met Your Mother star, “He’s gonna be the new Federer. He’s gonna have the Grand Slam soon. He’s got the Tonys, the Emmys, and pretty soon he’ll host the Grammys and the Oscars, because the guy is brilliant.” Check out the video after the jump.

I’m predicting these two team up on stage. In my mind.
