Bret McKenzie on His New Oscar Ego

HOLLYWOOD, Calif. - "Flight of the Conchords" fans will be happy to know that Bret McKenzie's not about to stop writing songs with Jermaine Clement, his partner on the now defunct HBO show. But backstage, McKenzie said that his ego might get in the way.

"I'm looking forward to writing with Jermaine in the future again because I'll be able to pull out the Oscar card and say, 'Um, I think we should use this chord because I won an Oscar,'" he said. McKenzie took home a golden statuette for writing the song "Man or Muppet."
