Storyline

Hollywood; Oscar night. After a live-action introduction establishing these points, Bugs Bunny says hi and begins blatantly lobbying for the Oscar that goes instead to James Cagney. Miffed, Bugs shows the audience a clip from Hiawatha's Rabbit Hunt (1941), and the crowd gives it to him but not the Oscar. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Trivia

When Bugs tosses the reels of his best scenes to the projectionist, he calls out "Okay, Smokey. Roll 'em." This is most likely a reference to Henry "Smokey" Garner, the cameraman and projectionist for the Leon Schlesinger studio. See more »

Bugs at the oscars
22 August 2004 | by (The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Bugs Bunny thinks he's gonna win the 'best actor' oscar but is snubbed in favor of James Cagney. He tries to convince the audience of his point while doing some impressions and showing a clip from Haiwatha's Rabbit Hunt.

Self-indulgent to the extend and not a funny moment in this 8 minute short. It may try to make some points on Hollywood and the Oscars, as a previous reviewer stated, but what it really tries to say is unclear.

The movie is banned from tv nowadays because of some racist-related links and impressions, but nothing to get too excited about.

Dull. 3/10.
