    Jason cracks me up. Maybe we should all be creating social buzz for Oscar nods for The Muppets this year. What about Cinematography? Sound Mixing? Foreign Language (for The Chef)?

    Hmm, as much as I do like that song, I LOVE Life's A Happy Song. I could see that winning best original song fer sure.

    I think that any of the songs from the Muppets could be nominated for an Oscar. I don't see why they wouldn't be, it's not like they're nominating em for Best acting or Best Picture. Although, it WOULD be cool to see them nominated for Best Picture, just to see them walk the Red Carpet.

    Enchanted received three nominations for Best Song; I see no reason why we can't honor "Life's a Happy Song", "Pictures in My Head", AND "Man or Muppet" with nominations. C'mon, voters!

    Link Hogthrob should be nominated just for keeping his nose, like Barbara Streisand lol

    So did Beauty and the Beast. The Little Mermaid, The Lion King, Aladdin, and The Princess and the Frog each got two nominations for original songs. To say that The Muppets will garner two or more would not be an outrageous statement by any means. If anything, it would be predicting what will most likely happen.

    That's my guess and hope. I don't see the Oscars as any sort of official stamp of approval on what is the best and what isn't - they work best as pageantry. But I would just really love to see these songs get some well-earned love.

    I would LOVE for the movie to win an Oscar!! Just what the Muppets need.

    Speaking of that, I hope Diz will license a Muppet from Sesame for a quick cameo in the next movie just for old-times' sake. :)

    I would totally love the movie to win an Oscar or just be nominated for anything! They say the Golden Globes nominations are usually about the same as what the AMPAS nominates too (sometimes). Unfortunely, The Muppets got snubbed by the Globes this year! SUCKS! Hopefully the Oscars will do them justice and nominate them for something. "Life's a Happy Song" is brilliant.

    I don't think it's ridiculous to think the Muppets are going to get at least one nomination for best song at the Oscars. I think "Life's A Happy Song" is a shoo in for a nom. It'd be great if "Pictures in My Head" and "Man or Muppet" got their due as well. They're all such great songs.
