SOCAN was pleased and proud to present a No. 1 Song Award to SOCAN member Josh Bartholomew for co-writing The Lego Movie theme song "Everything is AWESOME!!!,"  which plays throughout and is sung multiple times by characters in the movie. The Lego Movie reached No. 1 at the North American box office in February of 2014.

This is the first time that SOCAN has presented a No. 1 Song Award for box office status, and the only time we've ever had a special version of our No. 1 Award plaque designed entirely out of Lego pieces for the special occasion.
