Jennifer Hudson's Oscar Memorial Might Have You in Tears

23 February 2015 2:30 PM, PST | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Jennifer Hudson performed a special number following this year's In Memoriam segment at the Oscars, and as you may assume, it was really touching. "This is for all the people who shared their talent and their lives with us. We are forever changed," Hudson said, before launching into "I Can't Let Go," which she once performed on Smash. It's already a heart-wrenching number about loss, but it was made even sadder because of the context. Still, if you need a singer to nail a heartfelt ballad, she's your girl. Take a look. Here's the In Memoriam segment, as well: »

The World "Can't Let Go" of Smash...Thanks to the Oscars

23 February 2015 8:00 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Smash is really having a moment…years after it was canceled. The NBC musical drama starring Katharine McPhee and Megan Hilty lasted two seasons on the network before signing off in 2013. But at the 2015 Oscars, Jennifer Hudson, who also appeared on the drama about the making of a Broadway show, brought the series back in a big way: She sang "I Can't Let Go," an original song from the second season, during the "In Memoriam" segment of the awards ceremony. We can't let go either. The connection: Neil Meron and Craig Zadan, producers behind this year's Oscars telecast, also produced Smash. The song was written by Scott Wittman and Marc Shaiman for the show's second »

'Glory' Wins Best Original Song at Oscars, Brings Cast to Tears

22 February 2015 8:32 PM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

"Glory," the emotional musical centerpiece about the civil rights movement from Selma, bested "Everything Is Awesome" (The Lego Movie), "Grateful" (Beyond the Lights), "Lost Stars" (Begin Again) and "I'm Not Gonna Miss You" (Glen Campbell: I'll Be Me) to win Best Original Song at the Academy Awards.

As images of the civil rights movement and the march on Selma appeared in the background, Common and John Legend performed the song shortly before their win. A chorus joined the duo onstage, slowly marching in lockstep to simulate civil rights protestors. David Oyelowo, »

Also Read: Oscars Red Carpet Arrivals (Photos) Jennifer Hudson performed “I Can’t Let Go” after the In Memoriam portion of 87th Oscars.

Oscars: Joan Rivers Left Out of In Memoriam Tribute

22 February 2015 8:07 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Academy Awards’ “In Memoriam” segment offered an egalitarian salute to a broad range of industry figures who died during the past 12 months.

The segment presented by Meryl Streep gave equal time to Golden Age legends and below-the-line veterans. In a departure from past years, there were no clips for any of the more recognizable names but rather a series of stylized photo illustrations. Academy officials have long urged attendees to avoid giving the impression that the tribute is a popularity contest by holding applause until the end.

The segment opened with Mickey Rooney followed by director Paul Mazursky and was applause-free, as far as telecast viewers could discern, in the Dolby Theater until the final image of director Mike Nichols flashed on screen.

Joan Rivers was a notable omission from the on-air list. The comedian who died at 80 in September had a limited film resume, to be sure, but »
