Oscars 2015 Opening Musical Number: Neil Patrick Harris, Anna Kendrick and Jack Black!

Pin It
Neil Patrick Harris' Oscars 2015 opening number was nothing short of amazing – but hey, what did you expect? NPH kicked things off with a musical number where he inserted himself (and a clever shadow trick) into famous movie scenes. Later, he was joined by Anna Kendrick as they sang their tribute to "moving pictures."

It seems Jack Black wasn't so impressed with NPH and Anna's gushfest over movies though, as he took to the stage to interject some cynicism into the mix before launching into a musical rant about the "screens in our jeans."

No worries, Anna flung her shoe to get Jack off stage and finish up the big opening. Neil joked afterwards, "That whole thing...completely improvised." Neil slayed the musical number and we thought the addition of Anna and Jack was pretty brilliant.
