CELEBS CUT THE RUG _ EVEN LEO
By the halfway point of Pharrell Williams’ colorful performance of his Oscar-nominated song “Happy” from “Despicable Me 2,” all the celebs were on their feet dancing and clapping.
All except for one lone holdout: Leonardo DiCaprio.
Eventually, “The Wolf of Wall Street” came around, joining front-row mates Sandra Bullock, Amy Adams, Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper and Meryl Streep.
Immediately afterward, Pharrell and his backup dancers froze in position until a stage manager gave them the all clear. Several of the dancers let out a yelp of excitement once they realized it was indeed over.
