Trivia

The Best Original Song winner, "Lose Yourself" from 8 Mile (2002), was not performed at the ceremony. Reportedly, ABC asked Eminem to perform an edited version of the rap, but he refused (and did not attend the ceremony nor pick his Oscar up). It was the first time since the Awards were first telecast that the Best Original Song winner was not performed. See more »

Classier than normal
29 March 2003 | by See all my reviews

Steve Martin was great this year, and as much as I like Whoopie Goldberg as an actress, I wasn't too impressed with her hosting in years passed. Steve Martin was hilarious, or at least as much as he could be without being "distasteful." The only joke I felt was rather inappropriate was about Secretary with Maggie Glygenhaal, in which he said something to the extent of women begging on the floor and that putting them in their place. To me, it wasn't too offensive, but I could tell some people in the audience were less than enthusiastic about his comment. I hope to see him for many years to come. As for the actual ceremony, it seemed a lot classier than normal, which was a breath of fresh air. I enjoyed that, except the security was ridiculous. I am happy with CHICAGO's win, but would have liked to see FRIDA, ADAPTATION., FAR FROM HEAVEN among the nominees and would have been happy to see any of those win. Great to see Chris Cooper win, and would have loved to see Meryl win, but Catherine Zeta-Jones did a great job in CHICAGO, so kudos to her. I was only disappointed in the Best Actress win with Nicole Kidman. I think she is rather overrated as an actress, but good nonetheless. Her win for THE HOURS was a severe disappointment to me, even though I knew it would happen. I just hope she doesn't win for quite a while because it really bothered me she won this year. I would have LOVED to see Salma Hayek win for FRIDA, but it wasn't really in the cards. FRIDA was the most overlooked movie of the year missing out in major categories it should have been nominated for (Supporting Actor, Picture, Cinematography, Screenplay, Direction...). This was a great year for movies and a great year for the Oscars as well.
