Join the Muppet Revolution

Yesterday, Eddie Murphy announced he would no longer be hosting the Oscars after his producer, Brett Ratner, stepped down. It has left a vacancy that can only really and truly be filled by the Muppets. Here is an excellent apologetic for their hosting skills. Hopefully this takes off and ABC saves the telecast this year …

From Gizmodo:

I’m a lover of film. The art and care that goes into a wonderful motionpicture should be honored by peers in that industry. But I have eitherskipped or fast-forwarded through every Academy Awards show for the past 10 years. A Muppet Oscars, though. That’s a show I’ll watch again andagain. So let’s make this happen. Tell the Academy you want Kermit on that stage. Shout it on Twitter with the #MuppetOscars hashtag. Send the Oscars a message on their site. And while you’re at it, follow the Twitter account and fan the Facebook group that have already cropped up in support of our fuzzy friends. If we can get Betty White on SNL,surely we can get The Muppets hosting an awards show. I will not restuntil the Muppets are handing out awards to the best sound effects team. And neither should you.
