It takes a lot to write a single joke for the Oscars telecast, Neil Patrick Harris explains in a new Academy Originals video. "It's a shockingly long process of writing a single joke," Harris says. "Because you have to say it. It doesn't sound right, you change one verb or you change one parenthetical and see if it's better with a bigger set up. All for a 'I showed my weiner in Gone Girl' joke."
