Hughes is certainly worthy of a special tribute. His movies ring true for all generations.

John Hughes: Defined a decade, damn near two.

Great, great film-maker and a tragic loss. This is a great tribute to him.

A real shame about Hughes -- his movies helped to define 80s cinema. This is a very sweet tribute.

I'm disappointed that "Almost There" from Princess and the Frog didn't win (I still have that song stuck in my head months after seeing the film), or at least the other song from that movie. The other songs in the category seemed odd.

Holy Cow, first Molly Ringwald and now McCauly Culkin? Hughes really was special if he can bring them both out of hiding.
