It could be said that in many ways, The Lego Movie was the most powerful animated movie of 2014. It showed us animation in a medium we have never seen before, was smile inducing, and had a cast that would rival any major motion picture. So why the recent Oscar snub when they were so clearly the animated front-runner?
Luke Y. Thompson has some really interesting theories about this over at Topless Robot you should check out right now. He points out how Disney factors into it, and how the actual team behind the movie responded to the snub this week (below.)
