Everything Is Not Awesome – LEGO Movie Snubbed in Oscar Nominations

It saddens me to say that The LEGO Movie was passed over for an Oscar nomination in Best Animated Film category yesterday.

Fortunately, with writer and director Philip Lord’s talents, they will not be held down!

While a huge box-office success and a critical favourite, it’s possible The LEGO Movie’s lengthy live action sequences disqualified it from consideration. Unfortunately the snub means the film’s Australian animators, Animal Logic – best known for their work on The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, Harry Potter: The Goblet of Fire, 300, the Academy Awards-winning Happy Feet and The Matrix – are sadly slipping through without the kudos on this one that they so clearly deserve!

It’s okay. As Twitter user Kid President points out, Space Jam wasn’t nominated on release either.

With Daniel stating the rather poignant fact: Golden statues don’t pick the winners. History does.

We still love you!

Everything is awesome!
