Oscars: Muppets, Cirque du Soleil confirmed for the Academy Awards – AWARDS ALLEY

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Some would argue that the annual Oscar telecast is a real circus. This year, it will be more like Cirque du Soleil.
Oscar telecast producers Brian Grazer and Don Mischer announced in a press release Friday morning that Cirque du Soleil will present a “wholly unique and exclusive” performance during the 84th Academy Awards, which will be televised on Sunday, Feb. 26, on ABC.
The producers claim that this one-time-only event will “feature the largest Cirque cast ever assembled for a single act,” and will be accompanied by music by Academy Award-nominated composer Danny Elfman, who scored the music for Cirque du Soleil’s “IRIS, A Journey through the World of Cinema.”
The act marks the second time Cirque du Soleil has performed during an Academy Awards telecast. The troupe’s first appearance, at the 74th Academy Awards, sparked discussions about creating a permanent show at the Kodak Theatre and resulted in the creation of “IRIS.”
In addition, Muppets fans disappointed that their viral campaign to get the puppets as Oscar hosts will be happy to hear that Kermit, Miss Piggy and possibly more Muppets at least will present at this year’s ceremony.
According to another press release, “Hollywood icons Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy will present at the 84th Academy Awards … Their place in motion picture and television history has been cemented for decades, as evidenced by their well-deserved invitation to be presenters at this year’s Academy Awards ceremony.”
You’ll no doubt be tuning in. Whom else are you excited about seeing?
