Everything was not awesome for “Lego” at the 87th annual Oscar nominations.
Warner Bros.’ box office smash was surprisingly snubbed in the best animated feature category.
It was nominated for best original song but the 3D film, directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, was originally pegged as a shoe-in at the Oscars.
Phil Lord, who co-directed with Christopher Miller, took the snub in stride, though, tweeting his own Oscar. Miller also tweeted about the snub.
It's okay. Made my own! pic.twitter.com/kgyu1GRHGR

Congrats to "Everything is Awesome" though currently the title of the song doesn't seem especially accurate!

Among the animated nominees were “Big Hero 6,” “The Boxtrolls,” “How to Train Your Dragon 2,” “Song of the Sea” and “The Tale of the Princess Kaguya.”
Hosted by Neil Patrick Harris, the 2015 Oscars are set for Feb. 22 in Hollywood.
