‘LEGO Movie’ Director Builds His Own Oscar Following Snub

After earning near unanimous critical acclaim upon its release in February 2013, The LEGO Movie seemed like a lock for an Oscar nomination for best animated feature. However, when the names were announced this morning for the 87th Academy Awards, everything wasn’t awesome.

Big Hero 6, The Boxtrolls, How to Train Your Dragon 2, Song of the Sea and The Tale of The Princess Kaguya each earned nominations, leaving The LEGO Movie shut out of the category. Philip Lord, who wrote and directed the film with Chris Miller, took the snub in stride, however, posting a conciliatory image to Twitter.

 

He followed up that tweet with a message to those that worked hard to make The LEGO Movie happen.


Everything wasn’t awful for The LEGO Movie, though: The film did earn a nomination for best song for “Everything Is Awesome.” Just in case you need the pick-me-up following the LEGO snub, you can check out the Oscar nominated jam below.
