Best Original Song 2014: “I’ll Get You What You Want (Cockatoo in Malibu)” from Muppets Most Wanted

Performed by: Constantine (voiced by Matt Vogel); Bret McKenzie

Bret McKenzie won the 2011 original song Oscar for “Man or Muppet” from The Muppets.

Why? McKenzie scored Oscar gold for The Muppets (2011). Perhaps this catchy number gets him a follow-up nomination.

Why not? But the Muppets had yet to win the original song Oscar before “Man or Muppet” took the prize, and that incentive isn’t there this time around. Besides, Muppets Most Wanted feels like an afterthought at this point in the game.

Ranking: No. 23 as of Nov. 23, 2014
