What incredible feat will Pharrell's 'Happy' achieve if it wins the Oscar?

27 February 2014 3:35 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

What neat feat could Pharrell Williams achieve if “Happy” wins the Oscar for “Despicable Me?” Should his irrepressible ditty win on Sunday (March 2) night, it will be the first time in Oscar and Billboard history that a song has won the Oscar while sitting atop the Billboard Hot 100. There’s a simple explanation for this. Because the Academy Award voting cycle spans the calendar year, by the time the Oscar ceremony rolls around in early March, most of the songs have already peaked on the Billboard Hot 100, if they ever charted at all. In fact, should “Happy” snag the prize, it will be only the 17th Best Original Song winner to have topped the Billboard Hot 100 since the chart bowed in 1958, according to Billboard. The last song to win that reached No. 1? : Eminem’s “Lose Yourself” from 2002’s “8 Mile,” but its chart run was largely over by the time it won. »
