It's not easy being felt. (Or rubber.)
The Henson family donated 20 Muppets to the Smithsonian National Museum of American History in Washington, D.C., last summer, and getting the aged props ready for their debut has been a project worthy of Beaker and Dr. Bunsen.

A week after the 2014 Oscars, there's already a reason to get excited for next year's Academy Awards: a possible Miss Piggy and Céline Dion duet.

The commercials that aired during Sunday's Super Bowl to a large degree were already pre-broadcast. The big campaigns not only streamed online, but also preceded themselves with "teaser" versions.
As a result, their official arrivals tended to feel like a smallish baby dropped by a drooping stork. Then they were instantly viewed, discussed, graded up or down and made to run the gauntlet of social media.
In the future, everyone will be Carrie Underwood in The Sound of Music Live! for 15 minutes. It won't be pretty.
This year's Super Bowl ads didn’t send out any real ripples – nothing like 2013's oddly sensational Go Daddy spot with Bar Refaeli making out with a gratefully passionate nerd. In general, they settled for cute, if not always as cute as they were supposed to be. A Volkswagen ad that imagined German engineers getting wings ended with a proctological gag that stayed within good taste but never escaped the fact that it was a proctological gag.
Here are the ones I liked best.

If you watched the Golden Globes on Sunday night, you'll know that Muppets Most Wanted was totally shut out when it came to nominations. Of course, this is because the movie doesn't come out until March, but still – The Muppets aren't too happy about it.
The latest trailer for the upcoming film, which debuted during the 2014 Golden Globes broadcast, finds fans of the eponymous puppets arguing about the lack of respect given to the film during the 2013 awards season. (For the record, the franchise itself hasn't exactly been snubbed by the award-giving elite: The Muppets's 2011 comeback won an Oscar for Best Song in 2012.) In classic online form, the dispute soon devolves into a cavalcade of misspelling, name-calling and spam links, from such wits as @HotFudge1218 and @Babybean1128.
