Oscars 2012: Kermit and Miss Piggy Talk About the Academy's Snubs
02.24.12 by REELZ
The Oscars are this Sunday, and it seems like humans and puppets alike can't contain their excitement. This year marks the 84th ceremony for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and the fifth appearance for family-favorites the Muppets.
Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy starred in Jason Segel's 2011 musical comedy, The Muppets, and will be at the awards to present a surprise. Kermit's felt lips were sealed, only admitting to EW that it was "something very special."
The two characters sat down with Academy President Tom Sherak to discuss the upcoming night, as well as rehash their past Oscar snubs. Miss Piggy just short of demands that she take home a statuette and expresses her outrage that neither she nor her partner have received one after all of their nominations. Watch her interrogate Sherak.
