A big “congratulations” goes out to Rapper/Producer/Singer Pharell. This week the super producer announced that he has been nominated for an Oscar for his song, “Happy”, which was featured in the Despicable Me 2 movie, which aired in theaters in Summer 2013. His upbeat good-spirited song is nominated for “Best Original Song” which has left this super producer not only happy, but absolutely speechless. The song is currently a # 1 hit in United Kingdom, Australia, Ireland, France, Germany and Switzerland, and has climbed up 42 spots on the Billboard Top 100 Charts at a respectable No. 56 position.

The Oscar airs on March 2, 2014 at 7pm CST on ABC.
