Really cool getting Molly Ringwald and Matthew Broderick to introduce a tribute to John Hughes. Has any filmmaker defined a decade as completely as Hughes did for the 80’s and early 90’s? I am not sure there is anyone from 20-35 who doesn’t have a favorite movie somehow connected to Hughes.
Really nicely-cut tribute. And what a deep and incredibly diverse filmography Hughes had. Just a unique filmmaker and person. He walked away from a successful and incomplete career and never thought twice. And well done Oscar, gathering the actors he made stars and letting them give their own tributes. And very cool that his family was there. Just another reminder that the Oscars aren’t just a celebration of Award worthy movies but all movies, particularly the ones that capture and enthrall audiences.
