There are very few certain things about this year's awards race, but it seems one of them is that Bret McKenzie – yes, the dude from "Flight of the Conchords" – is all but set to take the best original song Oscar for one of his songs from "The Muppets."

Say what you want about the shitshow that's been the Academy's music categories over the years, but the past few years has brought golden boys to the likes of Eminem, Glen Hansard & Marketa Irglova, Ryan Bingham & T-Bone Burnett, Melissa Ethridge, Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross, and, quite likely to Bret McKenzie… Which makes for a happy song, indeed.
