See 2016 Best Picture noms in LEGO

The Big Short
The Big Short

You might have seen these films on the big screen but witness them like never before with this montage in bricks of LEGO

Eight films vied for the Best Picture Oscar at the Academy Awards last night and only one could emerge victorious - turns out it was Spotlight which didn't have nearly as many explosions as Mad Max Fury Road. Surely that should count for something?

The rest of the list included The Revenant, Brooklyn, Bridge of Spies, The Martian, The Big Short and Room - directed by our own LennyAbrahamson. Fury Road kind of stole the show on the night by running away with six other awards in technical categories and Mark Rylance's performance in Bridge of Spies managed to score a win.

If you need to be reminded about any of these films you really should check out thsi wonderful video featuring scenes remade in Lego. As you do.

There are some incredible moments here, which still retain a lot of their impact in these tiny bricks. And they're not just the big dramatic sweeping bits you might expect, with some great cutting between thematic matchups across the eight films. Mad Max still looks the best, even in Lego.
