Neil Patrick Harris has Oscars nightmares!

Actor Neil Patrick Harris, who is set to host the Oscar ceremony, wants everyone to “stop talking” until after the award ceremony as he keeps hearing his planned jokes on other TV shows. The 41-year-old actor, who has been working with writers on material for the 87th Academy Awards ceremony on Sunday, is upset that his “funny and strong” material keeps cropping up elsewhere.

Speaking at The Ellen DeGeneres Show, he said: “It's a tricky process with the content. “I'm finding good jokes that we had that are funny and strong, then I'll watch a late-night talk show and they'll say the same joke ... the Grammys, Saturday Night Live ... I just want everyone to stop talking until Monday!”

He said he has been “having nightmares” on how to top last year's host Ellen DeGeneres' famous selfie with a number of stars. “(It's created) this horrible dark cloud over my head. How do you beat the selfie that broke the Internet?” he said.
