Oscar Snub of the Year: No ‘LEGO Movie’ in Animated Feature

01.15.15 3 years ago

With the possible exception of Ava DuVernay losing out on a Best Direction nomination for “Selma,” the most shocking snub of the 2014 Oscar nominations was “The LEGO Movie” not picking up a nomination in the Best Animated Feature category.

The five movies chosen instead in that category were “Big Hero 6,” “The Boxtrolls,” “How to Train Your Dragon 2,” “Song of the Sea,” and “The Tale of Princess Kaguya.”

The Oscars faked out “LEGO” fans with false hope during nominations by revealing Best Original Song category first and nominating the film's standout tune “Everything is Awesome!!!” It would be the film's only nomination.

Twitter responded with some fierce dissent, and “Lego” writer/director Phil Lord began the proceedings with polite acceptance:
