Along with "Real in Rio
" from the movie Rio
, this was one of just two songs nominated for the Best Original Song category at the 84th Academy Awards. It was the third Muppet song to be nominated for an Oscar, following "Rainbow Connection
" and "The First Time It Happens." 2012 was a long way from the days when some of the biggest hits were written for movies (example: "Eye Of The Tiger
" losing to "Up Where We Belong
), and this marked the first time that just two songs were nominated - Golden Globe entries "Hello Hello" (from Gnomeo & Juliet
) "Lay Your Head Down" (from Albert Nobbs
) were snubbed.
