For a few minutes, everything really was awesome.
At an Oscars ceremony dominated, as usual, by films about dark and painful subjects, Tegan and Sara lightened the mood with a performance of their nominated The Lego Movie song, “Everything is Awesome.” Better yet, they were joined by Andy Samberg’s comedy-music troupe The Lonely Island, plus Questlove on drums and what looked like Will Arnett in a Batman costume.
Dancers even handed out Lego Oscars to Oprah, Steve Carell and other stars. (The Lego Movie directors built themselves one after being snubbed in the best animated picture category.) They may not have been dipped in real gold, but they’ll look just as good on a mantel.
