Flight of the Conchords' Bret McKenzie takes home Oscar gold

With only two entrants, original song might not have been the most competitive category at last night's (2/26) 84th Annual Academy Awards, but Bret McKenzie made the most of it.

The singer/actor and one half of musical comedy duo Flight of the Conchords took home the Oscar for his song "Man or Muppet" from "The Muppets," beating out the only other contender, "Real in Rio" from "Rio".

The New Zealander, who has also appeared in two of the three films of the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy and will also appear in "Rings" director Peter Jackson's upcoming "The Hobbit," thanked late Muppets creator Jim Henson for creating a "magical world". "It's a true honor to work in the shadows of such legends," he said.
