Funny, edgar. Wonder if I can hire that baby.
(AP) NEW YORK — Sergio Mendes will attend the Academy Awards on Sunday, but will do so with mixed feelings.
He's honored that his song "Real in Rio," from the animated movie "Rio," is one of the only two nominated this year, but upset with the show producers' decision not to present the tunes during the telecast.
"I am very frustrated, kind of sad that we will not be able to perform such a lively song," the 71-year-old Brazilian legend said in an interview Monday (Mendes shares the nomination with his countryman Carlinhos Brown and American singer-songwriter Siedah Garrett).
The humor. Love this.
