    If there were more nominations, I didn't see them. But there they are.

    well the song might stand a chance, but I don't think KSY can win...I liked it, but I think Lizzie will win...if one of the others win it could go to any of them, it depends whether the lighter side of TV is like or not!

    thanks for the info

    nah, I think the Best award children's program will go to "nick news Special edition: American kikds talk about war" the Academy eats up stuff like that. they love it!! best song....hmmm...I don't know. I'm not familiar enough with the other songs to say. I don't think the Muppets will get it though. I wodner if any of the Muppets will make an appearance. it would be nice if they did.

    yeah..the academy is fairly predictable....it's sort of unfair, because it's always the same things that win.....I'm not saying it's totally rigged, they just seem to follow a trend

    KSY needs to go away and never come back. From begining to end that movie was a waste...I guess I'm bitter or somthing, or maybe I just hold all muppet movies to the standard of the original. gesh...what a terrible waste of muppet fleece. :boo: :boo: :boo:

    I liked it, though I don't find it very canon to Muppet character history; VMX should win. I really liked the Christmas movie...good to see all the gang back in the Theater again.

    AVMMC should win for Everyone Matters. That was a great original song and was really emotional. It totally brings the whole story together.

    KSY should not win, but if it did it would be cool. The reason I didn't like it was because I was expecting so much more than what we got. And I think we should expect more. The muppets are much better than what KSY gave us. I was expecting something similar to TMM because it was said KSY was a sequel, so I expected to see a movie about Kermit's youth with sprinklings of Muppet cameos through out.

    I mean, how hard could it have been to cut to a shot of a baby Piggy in a pink dress sitiing in a puddle of mud when Kermit was at the farm? He didn't have to see her, but I think the audience did. Same could have gone for baby Lew flishing in Kermit's swamp, baby Rowlf at the pet shop, baby Fozzie sitting by the side of the rode selling jokes, baby Scooter and Skeeter with their uncle who happened to own the same theater Kermit went into, and so on. So much was missing, and don't even get me started on the bad human acting.

    But I'm ranting here. Let's hope the muppets win it all!

    yes, VMX SHOULD win! That song is one of those perfect songs....it's lyrics compares with songs in the first three

    GO VMX!!!!

    I can't believe Lizzie MAguire got nominated it by far the crappiest show on the earth. Crappy plot-lines that have been done zillions of times b4, bad acting, on disney channel, annoying little bro, and other reasons. I haven't seen KSY yet, I'd go out of my way to get it usually but I heard it terrible so I figure why waste my time

    Well, as far as I can tell, the Muppets have strong, unbeatable competition in the Children's Programme stuff. Especially with the overhyped Dizzy McMire, and the Iraqi, Spet 11 stuff...

    As for the song, it will go to the sappy manipulative Aren't they all Children. But Fairly Oddparents getting 2 nominations for THE SAME EPISODE?!?!?!? Some guy rips off the design for Powerpuff Girls and Dexter, and he's supposed to get a reward?!?!?!

    Well, here's my opinion, and I hope I don't get linched (sp?) for this but, KSY was OK but don't deserve anything. As for the VMX song, well, I thought it was the corniest part of the whole movie (for reasons beyond me), but I've only heard the Simpsons song, but don't remember it. So good luck.

    well I think it's going to be between everyone matters and everyone's children, but everyone's children made me wanna gag....it was too far off the 'nice' scale and went into the 'sickening' scale.

    Eat it up like ice cream !

    Everyone knows that dramatic serious stuff is preprogramed to be better than comedy...

    Sorry, us in the business of comedy really can't stand this stuff.

    Lizzy sucks! Don't understand her popularity, don't understand why they can't try something original than a warmed over Blossom (the TV show, not the Powerpuff girl) with a lame animated "Herman's Head esque" confession... yuck.

    But I haven't seen KSy yet.. I doubt it would win. But it deserves it more than little miss "Tween" target audiences...

    As this weekend's Creative Arts Emmys, "Everyone Matters" lost to "Aren't They All Our Children?" and KSY lost to "Through A Child's Eyes: September 11, 2001."

    Those ideas for Kermit's swamp years are so cool. I agree - I would have enjoyed the movie much more if Muppet Baby cameos were added in. They should make a special edition Kermit's Swamp Years with those changes. :)
