    I have a proposal to make. If 'Man or Muppet' does not win the Oscar...

    WE RIOT!

    Just imagine it; Muppet fans everywhere revolting against the establishment know as "The Academy." It. Will. Be. Epic.

    But, fellow fans, let us not lose hope. Plan A is "Man or Muppet" winning. I mean how can it not win??? I seriously think they just added the Rio song in because you have to have at least two songs in each category. I feel like that's probably the reason.

    BUT

    If on some chance that **** freezes over and pigs fly (Even Miss Piggy) and Rio does win, we will riot. Imagine it, friends, penguins flying through the air as we make clear our demands to the world. This is Plan B.

    Now, excuse, as I plan to "Occupy Kodak Theatre" on Oscar night with the fact that "The Muppets" wasn't nominated for Best Picture. :p

    You sir, are a genius! We, as fans. should go down and have a party in front of the Kodak Theater and in case they lose, they come out with their heads held high and we all cheer for them! Then, suddenly we all break into a giant rendition of "Life's a Happy Song" (or, in this case, "Man or Muppet") and then the Academy people come out, see how awesome it is, and gives the award back to the Muppets! We get a perfect rendition of "The Muppets" finale and and Oscar! Brilliant!

    Not to be an alarmist, but a usually-reliable blogger re-tweeted something from someone else today who claimed that a "good source" said that the Best Song nominees won't be performed this year. Since it's completely unsubstantiated third-hand information, I wouldn't even bring it up, except that it's the second time I've heard that this year. I wonder.

    IF it's true, it would be really disappointing, yeah. I wish we'd hear something for certain. I mean, if they're going to do something like that, they ought to give us time to raise an unholy fuss first, right?

    I think they will perform. There as already beeen talks about it in various interviews. Even if it was the intention of the Oscars not too I think there has been too much public talk otherwise and I think they will have to let the songs be preformed. Its only two songs anywyas.

    Yay! more awards for muppets! Wait... So they give a new Muppet, and Jason Segal a Oscar, but they wont give one to Miss Piggy? AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! lol jk, I hope they win, because man or muppet is competing with a song from that movie rio.

    I'm pretty mixed on this. I'm glad anything from the movie got nominated, and I'd say the odds are in favor of it winning against that Rio song. But to be honest, "Man or Muppet" was my least favorite of the three major songs in contention, and I thought they would have at least nominated one additional song. Wikipedia says that since 2008, no more than two songs from the same movie could be nominated - maybe the rule has changed again? Plus, the fact that there's only two nominations in the category as a whole is rather depressing in and of itself. Still, go Muppets!

    By the way, I would guess that if they do perform, they'll find a way to incorporate other Muppet characters into the performance.

    Really? Really? The Oscars is three hours long, and the show can't find the time to stick in TWO musical numbers. That's what, eight minutes total? Not a lot of time. So they can have a few extra montages dedicated to Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close or something? A few extra jokes beamed straight out of 1993 from Billy Crystal? Terrible decision making by the crew behind the Oscars.

    I'll say this. If the Muppets loses to friggin' RIO of all things I swear I'll find whoever's responsible and get them intimately aquainted with the biggest, heaviest baseball bat I can find. I'll kick their tails so hard they'll burp farts for the next decade.

    There's quite the protest on Twitter over this decision, helped out by our friend Ryan and The Muppet Mindset account, and Judd Apatow of all people. So if you have a twitter, tweet @TheAcademy and tell them how you feel. I know I did!

    OOO I should get a twitter account just for this. I am very upset. Not just as a Muppet fan but as a fan of movies. I have to admit I haven't watched the awards in awhile fore these very reasons. Music in film is so important. Its a shame only two songs were nominated to begin with.
