Pharrell Williams Earns Oscar Nomination For “Happy”

(AllHipHop News) Pharrell Williams can now add Academy Award nominee to his resume. The member of The Neptunes and N.E.R.D. picked up a “Best Original Song” Oscar nod for his song “Happy” from Despicable Me 2. The category also includes “Alone Yet Not Alone” (Alone Not Yet Alone), “Let It Go” (Frozen), “The Moon Song” (HER), and “Ordinary Love” (Mandela: A Long Walk To Freedom).

Pharrell has already won Grammy awards for his work with The Neptunes, Justin Timberlake, and Ludacris, but this is the performer/producer’s first Oscar nomination. If P wins the award it would put him in rare company. Eminem and Three 6 Mafia are the only Hip Hop acts that have won an Academy Award. Em won for 8 Mile‘s “Lose Yourself” and Three 6 won for Hustle & Flow‘s “It’s Hard Out Here for a Pimp.”

“Happy” already has one historic distinction. The video for the song is billed as the “world’s first 24-hour music video.” Pharrell tapped numerous celebrities like Tyler The Creator and Jamie Foxx to make cameos in the clip.
