The 89th Annual Academy Awards ceremony celebrates the film industry's best and biggest in cinema for the year 2016 with host Jimmy Kimmel, including awards for best actors, directors, songs, original screenplays and motion picture.
On January 16, 2014, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences nominated songwriters Bruce Broughton and Dennis Speigel for Best Original Song for the title song to the film Alone Yet Not Alone (2013). Two weeks later, on January 29, 2014, the Board of Governors voted to rescind the nomination after AMPAS found out that Broughton, a former governor and executive committee member of the Academy's music branch at the time, had improperly contacted other branch members by e-mail solicitation for support. AMPAS did not replace the nomination with a runner-up, and only four songs were nominated. See more »
Bad direction! Missed many emotional times. Camera always panning away from the most touching moments. Would have been nice to share those with the actors, that are indeed unscripted. For example, watching Judy Garlands kids, watch their late mother in her prime, would have been a sight to have been seen. As the camera switched to another celebrity who was applauding (w/o emotion) to Pinks performance, the camera missed Judy's girls crying and having a moment that only they could share, allowing us a small look into these girls/women of a legend. Ellen, was neither on nor off. I would still say she was a success. The pizza was a GREAT idea. (Was the guy in on it, did he know he was coming into the theater?) Loved how they didn't play off the acceptance speeches. Speaking on behalf of the east coast, move it an hour ahead. We "non Hollywood people" do have to work the next day. Please consider.
