When it was learned that Neil Patrick Harris would be hosting the 65th annual Primetime Emmy Awards, there was some speculation that he could bomb his performance and begin the awards ceremony with a train wreck. Of course, there was also a chance that a person like Neil Patrick Harris would also impress his cult of fans, and the divide was clear on social media as he brought in the 2013 Emmy Awards.
Here is what has Twitter buzzing from Neil Patrick Harris’ Emmy opening:
"As Paula Dean said, Orange is the new African American. Not too soon?" -Neil Patrick Harris
