Oscars Take Sentimental Turn

After Tina Fey and Robert Downey Jr. bantered about the battle between writers and actors at the 82nd Annual Academy Awards, the evening took a tearful turn when the pair awarded the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay to Mark Boal for The Hurt Locker. The first-time winner dedicated his award to his father, who passed away a month earlier. "He would have really loved to see this," Boal told the audience. Brat Pack members Molly Ringwald and Matthew Broderick then took to the stage to pay tribute to late iconic American director John Hughes. Other stars of his films—from Anthony Michael Hall to Macaulay Culkin—then took the stage to share their fond memories of Hughes.
