WATCH: ‘Everything is Awesome’ at the Oscars Thanks to Will Arnett’s Batman and Oprah

The Lego Movie” might’ve been snubbed in the Oscars’ Best Animated Film category, but the performance of its catchy theme song, “Everything is Awesome,” certainly livened up the plodding ceremony. Tegan and Sara and The Lonely Island took the stage with a bevy of construction workers, cowboys and an awesome possum to share their enthusiasm — even getting Oprah in on the action with an Oscar statue made of Lego blocks.

An unexpected highlight of the performance came from Will Arnett (who provided the voice of Batman in the animated blockbuster) when he appeared in the Batsuit for an interlude of the Caped Crusader’s dark and brooding heavy metal song from the film. And even though “Everything is Awesome” lost the Best Song gong to “Selma’s” emotional “Glory,” it certainly made for one of the most memorable moments of the night.
