    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.

    Culkin looks stoned out of his mind.

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

    Is that who it was. Kinder missed the announcement of who it was. Need to watch some of his films again.

    And SLJ appears. :D

    Yeah, Up was just wonderful. If I had my way, it would win best picture, even though I know that won't happen.

    Culkin was apparently hit very hard by his death. Huges apparently mentored him during the film, and continued to do so in the years that followed.

    I cried in the first ten minutes. I don't know how they did it, but they did it, and I did.
