It's time to play the music. It's time to light the lights. It's time to meet the Muppets on the Oscars Show tonight!
There's a Facebook page
that's been pushing to get the Muppets to host the Oscars in 2012, and I must say that I can't get enough of the idea.
Imagine it... Kermit is your primary MC for the night with Scooter as producer. Fozzie does some bad stand up to kick off the night. Gonzo does crazy stunts to make the ceremonies more exciting (and to impress his chicken, Camilla). Miss Piggy will expect a Best Actress Oscar ("For moi?"), but Kermit has to break it to her that she's not nominated (I assume some karate-chopping follows). Instead of the stuffy orchestra, you get Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem as the house band for the night. Sam the Eagle can be there to make sure it's a wholesome, All-American show. Dr. Bunsen Honeydew and Beaker can present the technical awards. Crazy Harry can present a montage of all the stuff that blew up in movies this year. The Swedish Chef can cater the entire event. And Statler and Waldorf would comment on all of it from the balcony.
Honestly, I could watch that every single year.
