Crowd-pleaser "The Lego Movie" took home a BAFTA this weekend for Best Animated Film, but that apparently doesn't quite wash away the slight of being passed over for an Oscar nomination.

"You are our favorite Academy by far," Lord said from the BAFTA stage. "You guys win the award for best Academy. This is the end of the awards road for us, so we can say whatever we want. There's no one left to impress."
