The Lego Movie is a computer animation movie who's main character is a man who's name is Emmet and is mistook for being unordinary, and being special. He is thought to be the one who can save the Lego Universe, but there is a bad guy who is determined to destroy the Lego Universe. They want Emmet to stop the bad guy, who is named Lord Business because Lord Business is plotting to glue The Lego Universe together. If he glues it together everything will be stuck together, and destroyed. Emmet has to battle Lord Business, and try and stop him from gluing the Lego Universe together. Will Ferrell plays Lord Business, and Emmet is played by Chris Pratt.
The Academy Awards had some high points this year. Neil Patrick Harris had a few good jokes, Idina Menzel got John Travolta back for last year's gaffe, and Lady Gaga reminded us that she can sing. But nothing topped the musical performance of "Everything Is Awesome" from "The LEGO Movie." The song, which was performed by Tegan & Sara as well as SNL-based music comedy trio The Lonely Island, was the weirdest and most wonderful thing to happen during the telecast.
There were a lot of things to love about the super-fun "The LEGO Movie" when it came out last year, but one of the best things about the movie was Will Arnett's portrayal of Batman as a conceited but nevertheless heroic jerk. If you thought Batman was the best thing about "The LEGO Movie," then here's some excellent news: Batman is getting his own spinoff! THR is reporting that Chris McKay, who headed up the previous LEGO feature film's animation department, is going to direct "LEGO Batman," a spinoff/sequel that will focus entirely on the plastic version of the Dark Knight.
The 2015 Oscar nominees have been announced, and there are many deserving names on the list: "Whiplash" has a solid five nominations, "Boyhood" is all over the board, and "Birdman" is getting lots of love with nominations for three of its actors including the wonderful Emma Stone. As always, though, there are a few major snubs that we just can't ignore. Here are the five worst ones: 1. "The Lego Movie" Best Animated Feature is a tough category this year, with heavyweights like "How to Train Your Dragon 2" and "Big Hero 6," along with surprising nominations like the lesser-known but very deserving "Song of the Sea" on the list.
