“The LEGO Movie” got skunked when the Academy Awards nominations were announced on Thursday.
The non-nomination prompted Phil Lord, who co-wrote and co-directed “The Lego Movie” with Christopher Miller, to tweet this perfect response:
He then added (more or less) that everything is, in fact, awesome.
This is not a tragedy. Congrats to incredible crew and cast of The Lego Movie, who made a classic.— Phil Lord y Betancourt (@philiplord) January 15, 2015
For his part, Miller had a slightly less enthusiastic take.
Congrats to "Everything is Awesome" though currently the title of the song doesn't seem especially accurate!— Christopher Miller (@chrizmillr) January 15, 2015
Imma let you finish but the Lego Movie had one of the best crews of all time. Of all time.— Christopher Miller (@chrizmillr) January 15, 2015
