I love it! It's like his baby. I wonder if he had any problems at the Customs on the airport. A heavy, metal object in the bag. #haha#

"With this thing in your hand you can to anyone at the party." Seriously, I look at those photos and still can't belive this is real. #love3#

Even my mom yesterday said to me, "I saw your Bret at the Oscars, I recognised him right away!" #lol# #love3#

She continued on to say that he did a really good job on his speech. ;D (she's only seen FOTC when forced)

It does still seem like a dream but a very lovely one. #cloud9#

Awwww!!

Bret McKenzie was so proud of a good luck picture sent to him in LA by his old Wellington school he was showing all the Americans he could.

"It was so cool, I was showing everyone like 'Check out New Zealand! This is my old school!," a tired-sounding McKenzie said in Wellington yesterday.

The 65 pupils of Clifton Terrace Model School created a giant banner in McKenzie's honour, which they held out in the school playground and snapped photographs with.

They then emailed it to McKenzie in LA, wishing him good luck for the Oscar award he won on Monday night.

Matt Shane engineered the Oscar winning song “Man or Muppet”!

I know this is late, but I have a good excuse! I’ve come down with strep throat and have spent the better part of the past two days with a 103 fever almost unable to remember my own name. But enough about me… Matt Shane’s work with Bret McKenzie from Flight of the Conchords has yielded another award – this time an Oscar for “Man or Muppet” from “The Muppets”. Congratulations Matt!

Catching up on articles, interviews and stuff

Golden future for Bret McKenzie
By Amelia Wade and Isaac Davison
5:30 AM Tuesday Feb 28, 2012


Bret McKenzie has blown his Hollywood career wide open and should expect immediate rewards in the industry, say casting agents after the New Zealander claimed an Academy Award.

McKenzie yesterday picked up the best original song Oscar for his composition Man or Muppet, in The Muppets movie.

Asked backstage how a small country produced so many award-winning artists, the Wellington musician and comedic actor said: "It's a great place to grow up. You can do whatever you want there. Whereas in America I think everyone's obsessed with their careers, in New Zealand you get to just live your dreams."

McKenzie already has a Grammy to his name, but Australian publicity mogul Max Markson said the 36-year-old's star was now brighter than ever.

"The world is definitely his oyster. He's already a fantastic talent ... but for him professionally it's amazing. He'll definitely get more work out of this if he wants it.

"What you've got here is someone who has got a fantastic ability to write a song and he's on the money popularity-wise and he's a young song-writer."

Winning an Oscar for Disney would make the company keen to hire McKenzie again, Mr Markson said. "They use so much original music and now they'll be over the moon with him ... and so if he wants to do more writing, Disney already know who he is."

The French silent movie The Artist and Martin Scorsese's Hugo won five Oscars each. And Meryl Streep ended a 29-year drought to win the best actress award.

McKenzie, in a brief acceptance speech, spoke of watching The Muppets on TV as a child in New Zealand: "I never thought I'd get to work with them."

He added: "I was genuinely starstruck when I got to meet Kermit the Frog, but once you get to know him, he's just a normal frog. And like many of the stars here, he's a lot shorter in real life."

McKenzie broke into Hollywood in the television comedy Flight of the Conchords, the show he wrote and starred in with long-time collaborator Jemaine Clement.

He said, jokingly, that splitting from Clement appeared to have worked in his favour: "It seems to have gone really well.

"But I'm looking forward to writing with Jemaine in the future. Because I'll be able to pull out the Oscar card and say, 'We should play this chord ..."'

McKenzie thanked his parents Peter McKenzie and Deirdre Tarrant for "never telling me to get a real job".

His mother said from LA - where she was baby-sitting his children Vito and Leo - that the family were "a bit overwhelmed ... we're all in speechless mode".

"[Bret] rang and all he could say was, 'I can't believe it, Mum, I can't believe it.' The city is just madness. Everyone's famous, and then there's Bret. And now he's famous, so it's all good."

Ms Tarrant said she felt indescribably proud seeing her son collecting the golden statue.

McKenzie also thanked his wife, Hannah Clarke, who was in the audience.

The other NZ nominees, Daniel Barrett, R. Christopher White, Joe Letteri and Dan Lemmon from Weta Digital, missed out on the Best Visual Effects Oscar. They were nominated for their work on Rise of the Planet of the Apes.
