Watch celebs boogie down with Pharrell Williams at the Oscars
Let’s be honest, the people involved in the Oscars sometimes take themselves a little too seriously — that’s why we have Ellen DeGeneres and Pharrell Williams to break the tension.
Williams launched into a crowd-pleasing performance of his hit single “Happy,” and got actors and actresses up on their feet, despite their high heels and long gowns. He took time to dance with Oscar nominees Meryl Streep, Amy Adams and Lupita Nyong’o.
Nyong’o showed how “Happy” she was to dance with Williams. Maybe it was a premonition: Nyong’o later won Best Supporting Actress for her role in “12 Years a Slave.”
Meryl Streep might be an 18-time Oscar nominee, but that doesn’t mean she’s pretentious. Streep showed off her moves as she got up to jump around with Williams.
Amy Adams might have a good girl persona, but she proved that she can swing her hips and do the “American Hustle” when she dove in to dance with Williams.
