Worst: John Hughes Tribute
Considering his influence on a whole generation of filmmakers and moviegoers a moment to remember John Hughes was completely appropriate during this year's Oscar show. All that was necessary, however, was a nicely edited montage piece. Instead, the clipfest itself was twice as long as it needed to be and was followed by an awkward in person remembrance where Alley Sheedy, Judd Nelson, Jon Cryer, Molly Ringwald, Matthew Broderick and Macaulay Culkin each spoke about their former director or producer. There is a reason there was no standing ovation during at the end of the segment and it wasn't out of disrespect to Hughes. The whole bit became crass, melodramatic and overstayed its welcome. This wasn't Ingmar Bergman we were talking about.
