Our Oscars Recap, Or Why Pharrell Williams Is Actually the Man
Before we get to the highlight of last night’s Academy Awards, we need to say: Congrats to Idina Menzel and the writers of “Let It Go”—this year’s Best Original Song.

But honestly, we really just want to talk about “Happy,” which was also a nominated for Best Original Song.
Full disclosure: We realize we’ve been a little bit obsessed with Pharrell Williams’ hit song lately. We just can’t help but get behind a song that’s encouraging people everywhere to dance.
And Williams’ performance at the Oscars last night did not disappoint. From a stage filled with talented performers of all ages (shout out to Comfort Fedoke!) to the movie stars themselves—everyone was doing the “Happy” dance.

But the highlight of the performance had to be when Williams hopped off the stage to dance with three of Hollywood’s brightest—Lupita Nyong’o, Meryl Streep and Amy Adams. And dang, did they show their stuff.
