NPH pretended to lock himself out of his dressing room while in between costume changes, coming out on stage only in his tighty whiteys. This is reminiscent of a scene in Best Film nominee Birdman, in which Michael Keaton's character gets locked out of his dressing room in the middle of his performance on Broadway and thus does the second act just like this.

The audience mostly cheered Neil on because this is a ballsy move for an awards show as formal and important as the Oscars. And the fact that he has a pretty much flawless six pack only helped matters.

By the next commercial break, Neil was back in his tuxedo, but this was fun while it lasted. What'd you think of Neil's Birdman joke? Too much or kind of amazing?! Tweet us @OKMagazine.
