SHOW BITS: Lego my Oscar statue

LOS ANGELES (AP) — While attendees like Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman headed straight for the exit after "Birdman" was crowned best picture at the Oscars, other celebs lingered inside the Dolby Theatre.

Bradley Cooper, Clint Eastwood and Meryl Streep — who all lost in their respective Academy Award categories — stuck around and posed for selfies with the Oscars they're actually taking home: the Lego renditions they were handed by backup dancers during the performance of "Everything is Awesome" from "The Lego Movie."

"Boyhood" filmmaker Richard Linklater and star Ethan Hawke also dejectedly dawdled in the theater before moving on.
