John Hughes Oscar Tribute Sparks Web Frenzy

It was a scene reminiscent of "The Breakfast Club." On stage at the Oscars was a brain, and a basket case, and a princess, and a criminal. Oh, and Macaulay Culkin, Matthew Broderick, and Jon Cryer were there, too.

At last night's ceremony, awards were given and speeches were made, but one of the most memorable moments came during the tribute to late writer-director John Hughes. Molly Ringwald (star of "The Breakfast Club," "Pretty In Pink," and "Sixteen Candles") and Matthew Broderick ("Ferris Bueller's Day Off") gave an introduction honoring the late artist. Broderick spoke of the fact that thanks to Mr. Hughes, every day someone, somewhere comes up to him, taps him the shoulder and says, "Hey Ferris, is this your day off?"

And then out came several more actors from some of Mr. Hughes' best known works. Joining Molly and Matthew on stage were Anthony Michael Hall, Ally Sheedy, Judd Nelson, Jon Cryer ("Pretty in Pink"), and Macaulay Culkin ("Home Alone"). With Ringwald, Hall, Sheedy, and Nelson together, fans of Hughes were thisdarnclose to having a full-on "Breakfast Club" reunion.
