New Delhi: Bret McKenzie bagged the award for Best Music (Original Song) at the Oscars. The song 'Man or a Muppet' from the movie - 'The Muppets' won the top honour in this category.
Bret McKenzie: Wow, thank you Academy. I grew up in New Zealand watching "The Muppets" on TV. I never dreamed I'd get to work with them. And I was genuinely starstruck when I finally met Kermit the Frog. But once you get to know him, he's just a normal frog. And like many stars here tonight, he's a lot shorter in real life. Just a few jokes. Okay, I'd like to thank everyone who worked with me on the film especially James Bobin, for doing such a perfect job of bringing the song to life on screen; Mickey Petralia, for getting such a sweet sound; Disney, for making movies with songs in them; my wife Hannah, our two kids Vita and Leo, for all their love and support; my friends and family at home, especially my parents for never telling me to get a real job; and finally Jim Henson and his original team for creating the magical world of the Muppets. It's a true honor to work the shadows of such legends. Thank you.
