Pharrell Williams’ hit track, Happy, from the Despicable Me 2 soundtrack, has become the highest-charting Oscar-nominated song in more than a decade. Nominated for Best Original Song at the upcoming prizegiving, Happy hit the number two spot on America’s Billboard Hot 100 this week (beg10Feb14). The last Oscar-nominated song to reach the top of the charts was Eminem’s Lose Yourself from 8 Mile, which won the Academy Award in the same category in 2003.
