    Yes, that would be great!

    I wonder what award Kermit and Miss Piggy will present? The Academy's being pretty secretive about it!
    I do kinda hope they do the animated awards. Lately, presenting the awards for Best Animated Film and Short have become incredibly boring. Here's a video from 1993 or 1994 with Bugs and Daffy presenting Best Animated Short:

    Compare that to last year, when Justin Timberlake presented them. BO-RING!!!

    I already mentioned that performance somewhere else. They do NOT want to have fun with Best Animated Awards anymore, and do that once cute, now incredibly lame thing where the animated characters sit in the audience and they get some dull intro by someone completely uninterested. Even Toy Story characters presented something. And who could forget when Edna Mode of The Incredibles co-hosted the best costume design awards? Kermit and Piggy will bring back some much needed fun and magic they seldom seem to care about. Though, I agree with the Simpsons... Jack Black and Ben Stiller will have a bit that will NEVER end (and I love the both of them).

    ok, so apparently piggy and kermit are doing interviews with academy president tom sherak today to talk about the oscars, so everyone be on the lookout

    obviously they're there for more publicity because no one wants to see tom sherak alone

    well, kermit says they're not exactly presenting, they're more like "introducing" something very special....huh. wonder what that means. i would think it was the song performance but since that's not happening, i wonder what it could be

    OK, there was an ad on TV for the Oscars, I missed it, but someone else I was watching it with said they saw it, and they showed a bunch of different people, including the Muppets, and the one they noticed was Sam the Eagle. Not certain if Sam was actually on it or not, but could it mean that Sam may be at the Oscars?

    That would be great!

    that makes me wonder whether the muppets aren't actually doing some kind of performance after all. given what kermit said about how they're not really presenting an award but introducing something

    You might be right!

    Don't forget Mickey Mouse (and his 60th birthday tribute) at the 1988 Academy Awards! Poor Donald was upstaged for Tom Selleck!

    Hm. I think I hope that they're not introducing the Cirque act. That would seem a little insulting, given the circumstances.

    zoebell Well-Known Member

    oh yeah. i forgot about that. well, that could be it, unfortunately. but i don't really know why they would have the muppets introduce that. unless they have some muppets involved in the number, which would be hilarious (and seems unlikely)
  13. panmanthe2nd

    panmanthe2nd Well-Known Member

    that would be cool!

    zoebell Well-Known Member

    ok, so another site has the leaked list of what order the awards are being given out, and they say whatever the muppets are introducing does have something to do with the song category

    it says song comes about 90 minutes into the show and look for a muppet surprise there

    if they're not performing the song itself, what could it be? i don't really get it

    MY guess is they are doing the song... I hope...or maybe only the winner gets to perform but they need to know ahead of time who won and...:) We can dream can't we.

    Huh, I've been looking online everywhere, and they're really secretive about who presents what Oscar. I know Kermit and Piggy should be doing one of the song ones, but I wonder who's doing the animation ones? I hope it won't be another snooze-fest like last year!
