If you're like me, you probably really dug those full-size Oscar statues made of LEGO bricks that popped up during last night's performance of "Everything is Awesome" by Tegan and Sara with The Lonely Island at last night's 87th Academy Awards. Curious how they were made? Each of the 20 LEGO Oscars contains about 500 pieces and were designed and built by New York-based artist Nathan Sawaya. Check out one of them being built in the video below... but only if you have four-seconds to spare!
