‘Muppets’ Deserves Best Picture Nomination

The Muppets is currently the best reviewed wide-release film of 2011 and with good reason: it’s a comic and musical tour de force. (John and I will agree to disagree.)

At 98% “Fresh” on Rotten Tomatoes with 132 reviews counted, three unfavourable—“Rotten”—reviews are all stand between it and a perfect 100% score.

After seeing The Muppets again yesterday—and leaving the theatre with my face literally hurting from so much smiling—I decided to start a Facebook page dedicated to getting it nominated for Best Picture at this year’s Oscars.

Sure, it’ll never win, but if you enjoyed The Muppets and think it deserves the same recognition as other critically acclaimed films, please Like.
