Even though The LEGO Movie not being nominated for Best Animated Picture was one of our biggest Oscar snubs, there still is joy in LEGO-land at the Academy Awards. The Academy has announced that they’ve asked The Lonely Island and Tegan and Sara to perform their can’t-get-it-out-of-your-head hit from the Warner Bros. smash film.
Look for Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone, Akiva Schaffer and Tegan and Sara to perform Everything Is Awesome on the Dolby Theatre stage on February 22.
We cannot wait to see what they do with this track and the potential vibrancy of the performance that involves a song that is one of the only played in the LEGO world. And the fact that Samberg will be doing his thing on the Oscar stage too has us beyond thrilled.
There are many The LEGO Movie quotes we adore, but Everything Is Awesome is not just a song and our favorite line from the movie -- it seems to be a way of life in the Phil Lord and Chris Miller crafted world.
Watch The LEGO Movie online and prepare for some serious awesomeness at this year’s Academy Awards, hosted by Neil Patrick Harris.
