The Lego Movie may just be the best loser in history.
The Lego Movie may not have made it onto the nominees list, but it did make it into the Oscars ceremony and that’s good enough. What better way to revive a stuffy, vaguely morose awards ceremony. Tegan and Sara, plus a massive ensemble cast, took it upon themselves to inject some life back into the night, dominated by heavy social subjects.
Tegan and Sara gave an aptly awesome performance of Everything is Awesome on the Dolby Theater stage.
Better yet, they were joined by Andy Samberg’s comedy-music troupe The Lonely Island, plus Questlove on drums and what looked like Will Arnett in a Batman costume. It’s pretty much your dream Oscars ensemble, right? Or at least a pretty cool NBC alumni reunion.
Dancers even handed out Lego Oscars to Oprah, Steve Carell and other stars. (The Lego Movie directors built themselves one after being snubbed in the best animated picture category, so it was all good.) Check out the full list of winners here.
The actual award went to Big Hero 6, which was also a Best Picture nominee, but missed out on that one. Check out the Everything is Awesome performance below.
