  • Matthew Broderick, Molly Ringwald join fellow Brat Pack stars to honor John Hughes

    Oscars - Show

    Molly Ringwald and Matthew Broderick presented a touching tribute to writer, director and producer extraordinaire John Hughes, who died in August from a fatal heart attack.

    Hughes directed coming-of-age classics including “The Breakfast Club” and “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.” He also wrote “Home Alone” and “Pretty in Pink,” among dozens of others.

    Broderick credited Hughes for being responsible for his irresponsible teen alter ego. “Thanks to him for the last 25 years, every other day someone taps me on the shoulder and says, “Hey Ferris, is this your day off?”

    After a brief montage with some of Hughes most memorable films, some of the Brat Packers he turned into bona fide stars – Macaulay Culkin, Judd Nelson, Anthony Michael Hall, Ally Sheedy and Jon Cryer – joined Ringwald and Broderick on stage to say a few words and honor Hughes’ family, who was in attendance.

    It was a touching moment in an otherwise glib telecast.
