Before Armond White (and Statler and Waldorf) there was Oscar the Grouch, the OG grumpy critic. He hasn't been getting a lot of mainstream play lately -- probably because he lives in a trashcan -- but the good folks at AOL and Sesame Street would like to change that.

Thanks to the power of internet video, Oscar has a soap box from which to predict this year's Oscar winners. Why this short isn't called "Oscar on Oscars," the world may never know.

We hope this isn't Oscar's fate: annually being dug out of the trash for awards season. He's no Melissa Rivers.
