Unfortunately for Leonardo DiCaprio, the award for ‘Best Picture’ as well as ‘Best Actor in a Leading Role’ did not go to the Wolf of Wolf Street star. The urban world however was heavily anticipating the award ceremony as well as the results, especially the award for ‘The Best Original Song’. To be eligible, songs must contain words and music written specifically for the given film. The songs must also be noticeable in the movie, or as the first song playing during the end credits.
In the end, some of the biggest names in music couldn’t beat a Disney princess. ‘Let It Go’ from Walt Disney Pictures’ animated musical ‘Frozen’ took the Oscar beating artists such as U2, Pharrell Williams and Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.
The track was written by the husband-and-wife songwriting team of Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez. ‘Frozen’ was the second Disney feature film for the couple, who also helped write the music for 2011’s ‘Winnie the Pooh’. Amongst the competitors for the Oscar, was multi-platinum selling artist Pharrell with his track ‘Happy’.
Pharrell had a chance to sit down with Hot 97’s ‘Angie Martinez’ to explain his feelings regarding his loss
“I feel OK. That experience was incredible. … The album is No. 1 at the moment in about 60 countries on iTunes, like what. I’m like, thank you, guys. I attribute all these great breaks andopportunities that the universe has given me
60 countries? Nothing to be too upset about. However long term friend ‘Pusha T’ wasn’t too pleased about the result. Pusha took to his Instagram account to post his frustration regarding Pharrell’s loss for Best Original Song (Happy).
