Phyllis hosts the 1st annual Muppet Awards, recognizing the greatest Muppet Show performers. The award, the prestigious "Fred", is actually a bowling trophy. Kermit, who hates awards shows, sits out the show, but Miss Piggy is absolutely determined to win. She's thrilled when she realizes that she appears in both of the sketches nominated for Best Sketch -- "Pigs in Space" and "Vet's Hospital" -- but the category ends in a tie, and no "Fred" is awarded. Piggy's only other chance for an award is as Performer of the Year -- and she's competing against Kermit.
