Now here’s some news that we know Pharrell Williams is happy about. The veteran producer has garnered an Oscar nomination in the Best Original Song category for ‘Happy.’ The infectious tune appears in the animated flick, ‘Despicable Me 2.’

Skateboard P expressed his shock by the nomination on his Twitter feed today (Jan. 16). The 40-year-old musician retweeted the Film Academy’s tweet of the Best Original Song nominees and added two emojis — a surprised face and hands of prayer to symbolize thanking God.

Pharrell’s Oscar nod follows his already seven Grammy nominations for his contributions on two of the biggest songs in 2013: Robin Thicke’s ‘Blurred Lines’ and Daft Punk’s ‘Get Lucky.’

There has been only two artists from the hip-hop community who have won the Best Original Oscar: Eminem for his anthemic hit, ‘Lose Yourself’ and Three 6 Mafia in 2005, for ‘It’s Hard out Here for a Pimp.’

The 2014 Academy Awards will air live on ABC at 8PM ET on March 2.
