What do Muppets, Bridesmaids and Tom Hanks have in common?
Miss Piggy and Kermit the Frog
What they're shilling: "The Muppets" hits DVD/Blu-ray on March 20th.
Nominations and wins: The song "Man or Muppet" from the film received a Best Original Song nod, though I'm pretty sure they didn't write it.
Lowdown: While "The Muppets" didn't quite reach the commercial heights Disney was hoping for (perhaps they laid it on just a tad too thick in the film's ubiquitous-to-the-point-of-annoying marketing campaign), the undeniable allure of the skinny green frog and his aggressive paramour is simply too strong to ignore, even for the cold-hearted likes of the Academy (kidding!). Since the fan-driven campaign to have the lovable characters actually host the show clearly didn't pan out, this brief appearance will have to do.
