Too bad there are only two nominees for Best Song, because it’ll cheapen it when this soon to be classic takes home the Oscar tonight:

Also crimes are the fact Jim Cooper won't win Best Supporting for the mirror sequence (since Jason Robards and Judi Dench both, essentially, won that statue for a single scene each in "All The President's Men" and "Shakespeare in Love" there is precedent) and Jason Segel isn't guaranteed Best Original Screenplay for 1) the song, man, the song! and 2) putting Cooper there.
I'm barely even kidding. It's wafer thin. And really I'm not about Cooper and the mirror.

Jason Segal, great as he is, did not write the Muppet songs. Bret Mackensie from Flight of the Conchords did. Which makes me want to link to two of my favorite Flight of the Conchords songs: "Foux de Fa Fa"
and "Think About It".

Yes, Jim Parsons should've been up for Best Supporting Actor for the mirror sequence (see Beatrice Straight and Judi Dench for short scene winners). And "Foux de Fa Fa" makes me want to visit Paris.

Thanks for correcting my art-mashes-up-life typo. And yes, seconded on "Foux de Fa Fa."

Congratulations, Lance and Bret McKenzie! And Michelle Williams wuz robbed. Yes, Meryl Streep did one of her best inhabitations in years, but the film was meh, and while Williams' film wasn't a grand classic, she did a fine job and doesn't have a colsetful of statues already.
