“Wow, thank you, Academy,” started Bret McKenzie during his acceptance speech. “I grew up in New Zealand watching ‘The Muppets’ on TV and never dreamed I’d get to work with them. I was genuinely starstruck when I met Kermit the Frog. But when you get to know him, he’s just a frog, and like many stars here, he’s shorter in real life.”
We were disappointed the Academy did not have the 2 best song niminees preform last night. But- were you able to catch Kermit (sporting a Brooks Brothers tuxedo) and Miss Piggy (in a form-fitting cream-colored Zac Posen gown) introduce Cirque du Soleil’s cinema-inspired performance? It was our favorite part of the show. Cirque did an amazing job- as always.
