While the Warner Bros. movie did score a nod for Best Original Song for “Everything Is Awesome,” many felt the film, which grossed over $250 million at the box office, deserved more.
Twitter reacted accordingly, with a bevy of “everything is not awesome” jokes. Even Lucius Malfoy was mad.
But it was the filmmakers behind the fan favorite who truly had fun with the painful snub. “It’s okay. Made my own!” Tweeted writer-director Phil Lord, complete with an Oscar statue made of – what else? – Legos.
Even Chrissy Teigen got in on the action.
Meanwhile, fellow writer-director Chris Miller paid tribute to the film’s Best Original Song nomination, writing “Congrats to ‘Everything Is Awesome’ though currently the title of the song doesn’t seem especially accurate!”
We feel your pain, Lego Movie.
