Oscars Host Neil Patrick Harris Calls Oprah "American Sniper"


Congratulating this year's nominees for Best Picture, host of this year's Oscars Neil Patrick Harris took note that American Sniper alone has raked in more at the box office than all the other nominees combined.

"Congratulations to all the nominees, especially for the 8 films up for Best Picture. They have grossed over $600 million," Harris said.

"American Sniper alone is responsible for over $300 million of that," Harris said. "So congratulations to them."

"To put that in perspective, everyone on this side of the theater is the 7 other nominees and American Sniper is Oprah."

Oprah, sitting next to her longtime partner Stedman Graham, was on the other side of the room and looked surprised when the camera was on her.

"Because you're rich," Harris said after a pause.

Oprah mouthed back but it was inaudible.
