It must be pretty galling to be nominated for an Oscar only to have to act your way through the ceremony with your best 'happy loser' face.

So, Lego made it a little easier for Bradley Cooper, Meryl Streep and other losers by supplying them with golden (or rather yellow) statuettes made of Leo bricks.

Copper seemed thrilled with the honour, snapping a selfie with his prize.
