Only 2 Best Song nominees, and one is Man or Muppet! The other is the song from Rio. I'm in tears with happiness for Bret!

I FULLY expect Bret to be the one who's name is called on Oscar night! Ohhhhhh, I hope he gets to be involved with the live performance!! Because with only 2 nominations, how could they not have both songs performed live?!?!

I agree, Laura, and the chance to put Muppets on the Oscar stage - too cool!

Here's the song Bret's up against:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tejf2pvjgM4 I don't like the melody, the rhythm's okay, but I think patriotic Americans will vote for an American treasure, the Muppets. :yay: :pray:

Eeek, a month of this. :witsend: We'll just have to wait :waiting: and see. :popcorn:

So exciting! What great news to wake up to! GO BRET! (I think he has it in the bag)
:whitey:
It's a shame that that Rio song isn't Jem's one - imagine, we could have had a Bret/Jem face-off for an oscar! I guess Pretty Bird just isn't long enough to be considered a 'song'

How long ago did we fantasize about a Bret/Jemaine Faceoff, and now how close did it come to happening? :rolleyes:

I know! Now I'm hoping someone interviews Jemaine or at least gets a few kudos on record from him...I miss him!
