Can't Stop the Feeling!" becomes the 41st chart-topper to be Academy-recognized with the announcement of this year's nominees.

Justin Timberlake joined rare historical company today (Jan. 24), with the nomination of his 2016 smash "Can't Stop the Feeling" (from the animated movie Trolls) revealed as one of five songs up for best original song at this year's Oscars. With the song's nod, it becomes the 41st No. 1 hit on the Hot 100, dating back to the chart's 1958 conception, to also be nominated for best original song at the Academy Awards -- a list that also includes such legendary artists as Michael Jackson, Dolly Parton, Stevie Wonder and Aerosmith.

Interestingly, while there have been 41 nominated songs to reach the Hot 100's apex -- 16 of which ended up taking home the Oscar -- "Can't Stop the Feeling" is just the third No. 1 from this century to be so recognized, following Eminem's "Lose Yourself" from 8 Mile (which won in 2003) and Pharrell Williams' "Happy" from Despicable Me 2 (which lost to "Let It Go" from Frozen in 2015). The decade with the most Hot 100-topping best original song nominees was the 1980s, with a staggering 22 of the 41 total coming from '80s films -- including all five nominees from the 1984 class, the only year where every nominee had topped Billboard's marquee songs chart.
