These GIFS of Celebrities Dancing With Pharrell at the Oscars Will Make You “Happy”

One of my favorite moments from last night’s Oscars is when Pharrell, who was singing “Happy,” the Oscar-nominated tune from Despicable Me, took to the floor to dance with a few celebs on the front row. Here, I’m celebrating the 20-second-ish moment of pure Oscar bliss with GIFS of him shimmying with Lupita, Meryl and wild child Amy Adams.

Lupita Nyong’o had been waiting for this moment all her life. I sense chemistry.

Meryl Streep can dance, too?! I give up.

Amy Adams waved her hands in the air like she just didn't care.

Here's the full performance, including the not-gif-able moment when Jennifer Lawrence told Pharrell to move on down the line. Boo, girl.
