John Hughes won't be forgotten at this years Oscars

02.17.2010

Usually when someone in the film industry passes away, the Oscars put a video montage together to pay tribute to those people.

It's obvious how important John Hughes was to film, and this year the academy will be doing something special for the late director. The Academy Of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences Tom Sherak and Oscarcast producer Bill Mechanic both worked with Hughes. As did this year's hosts Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin. That personal connection sealed the deal when it came to planning a separate tribute.

There weren't many details given about the tribute, except that cast members that have previously worked with Hughes would be involved.

Hughes has touched many fans through each and every one of his films. The pain, love, angst, and everything else that comes with being a teenager was perfected by the director. For me, Hughes captured the magic partnership of music and film together in a way that only few can do.

I can only imagine what the tribute will be. Although there are many people who have passed away that deserve their own tributes, it's hard to argue against one centered on Hughes.

If you didn't see it before, take a look at our own Nick Bosworth's video tribute to Mr. Hughes.

Extra Tidbit: Alright everyone, favorite scene from a John Hughes film. I'm all for you listing several options, I know it's hard to choose just one.

Definatly Steve Martin at the Car rental place is my favorite. But Ferris Bueller's bodily function piano, and uncle buck's "Ever hear of a ritual killing? Bleehehehe", are a close second.

Lovely to hear the tributes coming in, one film I love that I think is underrated was 'Some Kind Of Wonderful', pretty much a reverse 'Pretty In Pink'.

John Hughes

Thank You John Hughes for all the great movies, scenes, characters, and music. My favorite scene from a Hughes movie or one of them is from Ferris Bueller when Ferris and Cameron bring the car back and it goes flying through the glass window and basically Cameron has an epiphany and finally tells Ferris he is going to stand up for himself

He certainly deserves it. I love Hughes and always will. If anyone has Netflix, the documentary "Don't You Forget About Me is on instant view and it's pretty good.

I really like a scene in The Breakfast Club where all of them are running in the hallway just to make it back in time to the detention room before the principal come back.

Just a few scenes, in no particular order:

Art museum montage - Ferris Bueller.
Anything with Bender - Breakfast Club
Lawnmower musical - She's Having A Baby
Any scene with "The Donger" - Sixteen Candles
Cameron debating in the car - Ferris Bueller
Final chase scene - Ferris Bueller

There are probably more, but those came to mind first.

Those Aren't Pillows!!!!!!!

I love John Hughes because it was his film Planes, Trains, and Automobiles that gave me probably the most memorable times with my Dad, I can't even tell you how many times we've seen that movie together, it never gets old. John Hughes was a great talent, and he is really missed. Can't wait to see the tribute at the Oscars.

Also the scene with Steve Martin and the Car Rental Lady is the most profanity laced and hilarious movie moments ever.

Nice to know that he is being remembered.
Favorite scene is from Ferris Bueller's Day Off when Ferris and Cameron go get his dad's Ferrari.

Next one is in Planes, Trains, and Automobiles with Steve Martin going off at the car rental clerk.

When Macaulay Culkin is grilling Buck in "Uncle Buck."
The round table discussion in The Breakfast Club.

There's too many. We miss you John. No one can take your place. EVER.

Favorite Hughes Scene

The "roundtable" discussion in The Breakfast Club when they are finally fully opening up to each other and why they are all there is amazing to me. I love how that film was shot in sequence and how each of them nailed that scene. John Hughes is the man and I can't wait to see what they have planned for his tribute.

I haven't seen many Hughes movies, but The Breakfast Club is easily my favorite. I've always found Ally Sheedy's character irresistible. Anyway, favorite scene... favorite scene...
1. When they dance on pot.
2. Vernon spilling coffee on his desk (saw that happen in real life to my World History teacher; except she was hot)
3. Every scene with Ally Sheedy, except the lunch and dandruff scenes. Those were worse than 2Girls1Cup.
