BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Feb. 20 (UPI) -- Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy are to be presenters at the 84th Academy Awards ceremony in Los Angeles, telecast producers announced.

This will be the Muppets' fifth appearance at the Oscars show.

"They are fresh off their triumphant critical and box-office success in Disney's 'The Muppets,' which received an Oscar nomination for Original Song for 'Man or Muppet,'" the producers said in a news release Friday.

Academy Awards for outstanding film achievements of 2011 are to be presented Sunday at the Kodak Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center.
