"The LEGO Movie" Didn't Get Nominated For Best Animated Feature And The Internet Is Furious

Everything is NOT awesome.

Posted on

Twitter was pretty stunned to hear The LEGO Movie wasn't nominated for best animated feature.

They didn't nominate The LEGO Movie for Best Animated feature so that they can nominate it for Best Picture, right? ...Right?

Surely.

Maybe #legomovie up for Best Pic? #OscarNoms

But...no.

Most people were outraged.

In honor of THE LEGO MOVIE, am going to buy HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON 2 on Blu-Ray and destroy it with a hammer.

I predict that this Lego Movie snub will be the end of the Academy. We can't just move on from something like this

And as it happened – one of the writer/directors did.

And there was this bit of good news.

Had to check, because I didn’t think it did, but ‘Everything is Awesome’ from the Lego Movie got a Best Song nomination, at least…

Which didn't seem to cheer the other writer/director Chris Miller up too much.

Congrats to "Everything is Awesome" though currently the title of the song doesn't seem especially accurate!

Basically, this is how we're feeling right now.

The Lego Movie should have gotten ALL the #OscarNoms. #EverythingIsNotAwesome
