LEGO MOVIE Directors Comment On Oscar Snub


It’s not an announcement of Academy Award nominations without some surprises and snubs. One of the biggest surprises this year was the snub of critically and publicly popular The Lego Movie not being nominated in either the Best Picture or Best Animated Feature categories. (Which raises the question as to whether Academy members were unsure as to which category to place a nomination for The Lego Movie, thus diluting the support for it across the two categories.)

And while there seems to be an uproar going across the internet about the film’s lack of nominations outside of one for Best Original Song (“Everything Is Awesome”), co-writers and co-directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller demonstrated a sense of humor about things as they took to twitter to comment.
