Bret McKenzie, Oscar nominee

January 24, 2012 at 12:00 pm by kristin  - 

There are already a lot of Oscar winners working on The Hobbit. Soon there might be one more. When the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced the 2011 nominees, Bret McKenzie (“Figwit” in The Lord of the Rings and Lindir in The Hobbit) turned up in the “Music (Original Song)” category for his “Man or Muppet” from The Muppets. Congratulations and good luck to Bret! The Oscars will be awarded on February 26.

By the way, the highest number of nominations went to Martin Scorsese’s Hugo. Like The Return of the King, it bagged eleven–also without a single actor nomination. The parallel isn’t complete, since Hugo made it into two categories that ROTK didn’t, Sound Editing and Cinematography. It was not in two categories that ROTK won, Makeup and Original Song.

For a full list of nominees, check out the Academy’s website.

    I am so Happy about this nomination. I Love Bret McKensie!!  Love Flight of the Conchords. Loved his LOTR appearances. I also love the muppets and puppets. So how can you go wrong?! Keep up the good work. Can’t wait to see Bret in the upcoming Hobbit films. Great Goin’!!

    And no mention that Howard Shore also composed the score to Hugo and is also a nominee for the first time since he won for ROTK?
