Take it from Rita Moreno (mark 4:12), the Muppets should absolutely host the Oscars!
We are making it our mission to fill the vacancy left by Eddie Murphy in hosting the Oscars with the funniest folks in Hollywood. Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy and all of their friends MUST present the Academy Awards this year and to make sure you all get one board, we've found undeniable proof that they would be PERFECT for the job!
Have a look at the video (above). It's from the 1979 EMMY Awards. The Muppets Show was at its peak during this time, so Kermit and Piggy were asked to present - not host!
A travesty for the time, one that the indelible Missy Piggy is not happy about. Their schtick sends the entire theater into thunderous laughter, something the Oscars hasn't heard in over a decade.
