Pharrell to Oversee Music for Oscars

Pharrell is headed to the Oscars. The Neptunes super-producer will supervise the music for next year’s awards ceremony.

Skateboard P and composer Hans Zimmer have been tapped as music consultants for the 84th Annual Academy Awards, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

“Hans is one of the most accomplished and creative film composers of our time, and Pharrell is a phenomenal songwriter with an amazing list of credits,” said producers Brian Grazer and Don Mischer. “This is an exciting and prestigious collaboration that promises to take the audience on a musical journey.”

Pharrell previously worked with Zimmer on the soundtrack to the animated film Despicable Me and his songs have appeared in films such as Fast & Furious, Knocked Up, and Mean Girls.

Billy Crystal will host Hollywood’s biggest night, airing live on February 26 on ABC.
