No Oscar nomination for Trent Reznor this year. The National, Jónsi, She & Him, and all the other indie types who made the Best Original Song shortlist also didn’t hear their names called when the Academy Of Motion Picture Arts And Sciences announced this year’s Oscar nominations this morning. In fact, only two songs were nominated for Best Original Song this year, which seems weird. And one of them happens to be “Man Or Muppet,” which Bret McKenzie, the slight and bearded half of Flight Of The Conchords, wrote for The Muppets. It’s going up against something from Rio. Murray is going to be so proud! Watch the “Man Or Muppet” video below.
