Bret McKenzie wins Oscar, that much closer to EGOT status

Congratulations to Bret McKenzie, one half of New Zealand music-comedy duo Flight of the Conchords, for winning Oscar this past weekend for his original song, “Man or Muppet” for The Muppets movie.

That brings him that much closer to EGOT status.

McKenzie previously has won Grammy with Flight of the Conchords, and has received several Emmy nominations for the FOTC HBO series. He just needs to produce something on Broadway now, right?

Let’s watch the official video for “Man or Muppet.” Roll it!
