The Lego Movie was fantastic and should’ve easily been at least nominated for best animated feature, but it only managed one nomination (Everything is Awesome song) overall. After the snub, the director responded with a pretty classic tweet.
Director Philip Lord tweeted out a photo of an Oscar statue made of Legos, along with the message "It's OK, I made my own".

Despite the snub, the movie did win a Critics Choice Award on Thursday. Lord celebrated by tweeting:
The films nominated for Best Animated Feature included: Big Hero 6, The Boxtrolls, How to Train Your Dragon 2, Song of the Sea, and The Tale of the Princess Kaguya.
