Oscars 2015: 'Everything Is Awesome'
The Oscars hit a high note pretty early on in the evening with a starry performance of "Everything Is Awesome" that both brought the house down and went a long way in explaining why the Academy didn't actually nominate "The Lego Movie" for Best Animated Feature (it still stings!)

As introduced by Marion Cotillard (side note: who made this decision and does Marion actually know what a Lego is?), the performance of Best Original Song nominee "Everything Is Awesome" featured, in no particular order, pop stars Tegan and Sara (looking insanely adorable), the goofballs from The Lonely Island (including a wily Andy Samberg), Will Arnett doing a bit of his Batman song, Questlove on drums, and Devo member Mark Mothersbaugh (wearing a Lego-fied version of the famous Devo hat). There were dancers, Oscar versions of Oscars, handed out to Channing Tatum and Steve Carell, and a zany, WTF-worthy energy.

The performance captured the spirit and craziness of "The Lego Movie" and it's overwhelming, out-of-control cuteness of the movie itself and the uncomfortable silence in the auditorium that followed was a clear tip-off to why the movie wasn't nominated for the coveted Best Animated Feature Oscar. Oh well. Everything is awesome, especially if Questlove is there.
