Muppets Kermit and Miss Piggy, Tina Fey named as Oscar presenters
Muppets Kermit and Miss Piggy and "30 Rock" star Tina Fey will be presenters at the 84th Academy Awards on February 26, the ceremony's producers announced on February 17.
Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy, who remain a Hollywood power couple, will be making their fifth appearance at the Academy Awards. They recently appeared in "The Muppets," which is nominated for an Academy Award for Best Song, "Man or Muppet." The song was written by "Flight of the Conchords" star Bret McKenzie and performed by the film's human stars, Jason Segel and Amy Adams.
In November, Miss Piggy told OnTheRedCarpet.com that she believes her longtime love Kermit the Frog deserved an Oscar nomination for his performance in the recent "Muppets" film.
Tina Fey produces and writes for NBC's Emmy-winning comedy series "30 Rock." She has also appeared in films like "Date Night," "Baby Mama" and "Mean Girls." The actress, who rose to fame as a "Saturday Night Live" cast member, recently became a best-selling author with her memoir "Bossypants" selling over one million copies.
Kermit, Miss Piggy and Tina Fey join the list of previously announced presenters which includes Ben Stiller, Bradley Cooper, Chris Rock, Halle Berry, Cameron Diaz, Emma Stone, Tom Hanks, Angelina Jolie, Tom Cruise, Jennifer Lopez and Melissa McCarthy.
