The Muppets & Oscar (the award, not the grouch).

On the Academy Awards tonight a short clip of Ms Piggy was played during a tribute to talk show legend, Johnny Carson. The clip showed Piggy talking to Johnny complaining about how she was not nominated for an Oscar for her work with the Muppet. Piggy said "Aren't I good enough for an Oscar?" to which Johnny responded, "Oscar Mayer maybe." It was a great tribute to Johnny and a nice clip with the Muppets too. Maybe in years to come we'll see the Muppet have a bigger role at the awards (presentors, pre-show guests, etc.) - hey maybe we'll see them win an Oscar in the future.
