Build Your Own LEGO Oscar Statue

A few days ago, the 87th Academy Awards were held and during the “Everything is Awesome” performance, LEGO versions of the Oscar statue were handed out to various celebrities. A few resourceful people over on Reddit studied and reverse engineered Nathan Sawaya’s video of him creating the statue frame by frame and has provided a LDD File for people who are interested in creating their own.

What’s cool about the Reddit thread is that one of the members of the crew who won an Oscar for Best Sound Editing for “American Sniper” also visits /r/LEGO/ and will be creating them for each member of the crew since only the bosses get the real thing.

So if you want to create one of Nathan Sawaya’s LEGO Oscar statues, you can now do that with the instructions provided in the LDD file. Nathan has also posted the Oscar statue on LEGO Ideas if you want support it.

The LEGO Movie Snubbed at the Oscars

So I wake up this morning and see that the Oscar nominations have been announced by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Despite being one of the top four grossing movies in 2014 with $257 million domestically and $468 million worldwide, The LEGO Movie has been totally snubbed in the Best Animated Feature Oscars category which includes The Boxtrolls, How to Train Your Dragon 2, Big Hero 6, Song of the Sea, and The Tale of Princess Kaguya. The LEGO Movie was liked by many including critics and has a 96% Fresh Rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

Honestly, I haven’t even heard of the last two movies on the list and how many of you actually watched all five in theaters. I’m going to say a majority of the readers here never even watched the the last two movie considering that Song of the Sea only made $100,360 and The Tale of Princess Kaguya made $597,978 domestically. One of the movies was also released in December so how can that even be considered. Sure all the nominees are worthy but come on now. I also checked out the rules of eligibility and I’m pretty sure The LEGO Movie fits the definition:

An animated feature film is defined as a motion picture with a running time of more than 40 minutes, in which movement and characters’ performances are created using a frame-by-frame technique. Motion capture by itself is not an animation technique. In addition, a significant number of the major characters must be animated, and
