Miss Piggy and Kermit
The Muppets may not be performing at the Oscars or hosting, but we're getting the next best thing: Kermit and Miss Piggy will present.
This will mark the fifth time the longtime power couple has appeared at the Oscars. They join such previously announced presenters as Chris Rock, Halle Berry, Bradley Cooper, Tom Cruise, and Cameron Diaz.

Kermit and Miss Piggy — who will no doubt support their film's Best Original Song nod for "Man or Muppet" — first appeared at the Oscars 32 years ago when "Rainbow Connection" was nominated in the same category. (It inexplicably lost to Norma Rae's "It Goes Like It Goes.") Check out Miss Piggy's banter with host Johnny Carson below:
The 84th Academy Awards, hosted by Billy Crystal, airs Sunday, Feb. 26 at 8:30 p.m. ET/ 5:30 p.m. PT on ABC.
