Oprah Winfrey won at the Academy Awards Sunday night ... scoring the Oscar everybody wanted ... the Lego variety. 

She wasn't the only one ... during the performance of "Everything is Awesome" by Tegan and Sara and The Lonely Island, dancers dolled out Lego Oscars to stars like Oprah, Clint Eastwood, Meryl Streep, Bradley Cooper and Emma Stone, and others.

"The Lego Movie" may have been snubbed but they got their sweet revenge.

One thing's for sure ... those statues are awesome.

Wiz Khalifa

Amber's So Cold

She Denied Our Kid His Birthday Party!

Exclusive Details

0222-wiz-khalifa-son-amber-rose-birthday-TWITTER-01Wiz Khalifa threw a big party Saturday for his son's birthday ... but the rapper says his 2 year-old never showed because ex-wife Amber Rose denied the kid a good time out of spite.

Wiz posted sad pics of the party with the caption, "only thing missing was Bash" -- referring to their son Sebastian

Sources close to Wiz say Amber was supposed to bring Sebastian to the party and they would celebrate his birthday together ... as parents.  Wiz says everyone was there and he's heartbroken the boy couldn't celebrate with civil parents.

Khalifa put Amber on blast,  saying, "ive never voiced my true unhappiness out of fear of the person I was with and what she would do to make me more unhappy of anyone knew."

Wiz goes on to champion father's rights, saying, "Standing up for all fathers who need, deserve, or can't find help," adding, "As a man, and a dad you'll feel like, 'I got this.'  But who got us?"  In other words, the system doesn't protect fathers.

022215_amber_rose_launchFor her part, Rose posted videos of their son before and after the party.

She's got way too many feuds going on.

Bobby Brown

Nick Can See Bobbi Kristina

BUT ONLY IF ....

update_graphic_red_bar

9:15 AM PST -- Gordon's attorney says his client his legal team advised Nick to reject Bobby Brown's conditions in order to visit Bobbi Kristina.  He says Nick has repeatedly offered to meet with Bobby in private to clear the air, rather than go through lawyers, but the singer turned Gordon down.

update_grey_gray_bar

Bobby Brown is calling BS on Nick Gordon for suggesting the family won't let him see Bobbi Kristina ... but when you read between the lines it sounds like there's a string attached that Nick won't touch.

Brown lawyer says, "To address the continued and never ending media requests for comment about Mr. Gordon's requests to visit Bobbi Kristina, let me be very clear, Mr. Gordon was offered an opportunity to potentially visit Bobbi Kristina and he declined to meet the terms of any possible visit."

The lawyer won't say what "term" Gordon must meet, but it's pretty apparent.  TMZ broke the story there's a criminal investigation because Bobbi Kristina had visible injuries when she was rushed to the hospital, and Nick is the target of the investigation.  Seems obvious ... Brown wants Nick to talk to cops.

The lawyer certainly hinted he wants Nick to sit down with police, saying, "We are only concerned with individuals that can help Bobbi Kristina and bring resolution to the investigation."

As far as we know Nick has not been interviewed by police and the investigation is ongoing.

Nick made a public plea Saturday night to allow him in the hospital, claiming he's the one who can bring his girlfriend back to life, but Brown's lawyer scoffs, saying, "Obviously Mr. Gordon is not as desperate to visit Bobbi Kristina as he wants the world to believe."

Jack Nicholson

I'll Sell You My Lakers Tix

... I'm Sorta Over It

EXCLUSIVE

022115_jack_nicholson_launch_v2Lookin' for some insane courtside seats to the Lakers game?

Jack Nicholson tells TMZ Sports he's willing to sell you his for face value ... since he's not as motivated to go the Staples Center as he used to be.

It's actually pretty sad ... Nicholson -- who's been a staple at the Lakers games for decades -- was leaving Madeo in Beverly Hills when he told us he's just not as into the Lake Show as he used to be.

We're guessing the team's abysmal record has a lot to do with it.

The good news? You could sit right next to stars like Leo DiCaprio and Mark Wahlberg ... that is, if they even feel like showing up these days.

ALL HAIL KING JOFFE JOFFER  ... 'cause Snoop Dogg straight up transformed into the ruler of Zamunda last night for an INSANE "Coming to America" themed bday party for his son ... and we've got in the footage!!

Snoop threw the mega-bash to celebrate his 18-year-old football star son Cordell Broadus (who just committed to UCLA) ... recreating the famous wedding scene from the 1988 Eddie Murphy flick.

There were dancers ... there were rose petal throwers ... there was even a THRONE!!!

You gotta watch the video ... it's one of the craziest things we've ever seen.

BTW, we know what you're thinking ... and no, we have no idea if Cordell got himself a bath too.

Calvin Harris

Lawyer Threatens Suit

Over Nude Pics and Video

2/22/2015 12:55 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0221-calvin-harris-tmz-01Calvin Harris has lawyered up over nude pics of him that are being shopped in the porn and media worlds ... and anyone who dares to post them will see Calvin in court ... fully clothed.

Harris -- who is a wildly popular DJ and the new face/body for Armani underwear -- apparently had a penchant for taking nude pics and videos and sending them to several women. He not only bares all, but proudly mugs for the camera.

We passed on the pics but we can say, he's ripped and, well, Big Sean's got nothing on him.

Keeping Up With The Kardashians Bruce Jenner Absent

The Kardashians are driving a wedge between themselves and Bruce Jenner, and we've learned the upcoming season of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" is a virtual farewell to the patriarch.

Sources connected with the production tell TMZ ... there's a scene in the show where the girls discuss how Bruce is such an infrequent visitor, "Bruce and the boys are almost completely out of the picture."

One of the girls says, "Maybe it's time to admit to themselves that they're barely even enough of a family anymore to go on vacation [with us]."

At one point Kim says, "Things are only going to get more difficult and complicated," referring to Bruce's sex change.

And during the episode, Scott Disick rails on Bruce, saying when they were dune buggying in Pismo Beach, Bruce "got on his high horse on how to be the world's best dad." Scott says he got really annoyed and said to Kourtney, "I wonder what Brody would have to say about that" -- obviously referring to the fact that Bruce was largely absent while Brody grew up.

The Oscars

Show Will Go On ...

Roaches Dodge Health Inspectors

2/22/2015 12:35 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Oscars Dolby Theater Health Department Oscars producers can stop holding their breath -- the Health Department combed the Dolby Theater for roaches and other violations, and gave 'em the green light for Sunday's ceremony ... TMZ has learned.

TMZ broke the story ... video shot inside the home of the Oscars showed several bars and a storage area that were filthy with dead cockroaches, flying bugs, dirty sinks, garbage and more.

Health Department Manager Charlene Contreras tells TMZ they sent 2 inspectors to the theater late Thursday afternoon -- hours after we posted the video -- to check the 6 bar areas. She says no roaches or flies turned up.

Contreras says the critters in the video may have set up camp in areas that are unused between events.

Bottom line ... celebs won't have to worry about crawling critters on Sunday. They're on their own with agents and lawyers though.

If Steven Spielberg wants Chris Pratt to play a version of "Indiana Jones" who can talk someone's ear off in the rumored new movie ... then one legendary writer says he'd love to help.

Aaron Sorkin was heading out of the Montage Saturday night in Bev Hills when he told our photog he's always wanted to write an action flick ... so if Spielberg and co. came knocking, he'd be down.

There's a fear though. Check out the video and hear it from Sorkin himself.

Fortune and glory, kid.
