Glenn Close’s dance, Frances McDormand screams, Yuh-Jung Youn meets Brad Pitt and more – Deadline

Just like he did at the 2019 BET Awards and the 2020 Primetime Emmy Awards, Tyler perry gave another inspiring speech at the 2021 Oscars. “I hope we would refuse hate,” Perry said during his powerful speech while receiving the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award in one of the highlights of the Oscars broadcast on ABC.

Another touching acceptance speech that moved viewers came from Thomas Vinterberg, winner of an international Oscar for Another round. He paid tribute to his teenage daughter Ida, who died in a car accident four days after the filming of the film, and dedicated the award to her.

Youn Yuh-Jung, Brad Pitt

Minari co-star Yuh-Jung Youn, who had been endearing with his spontaneous remarks throughout the awards season, especially thanking the British “snobs” during his BAFTA acceptance speech, did not disappoint. Seeming to be completely star-studded, Yuh-Jung Youn, the first Korean actress to win an Oscar, began by addressing category presenter Brad Pitt. “I am very honored to meet you,” she said from afar as there was no interaction between the presenters and this year’s Oscar winners due to Covid’s security protocols. She then berated Pitt for not visiting the set of Minari and to roast all those who have mispronounced his name.

Another seasoned actress known for her unpredictable – and always memorable – acceptance speeches, Frances mcdormand, I have to deliver two tonight for Nomadland. First, while accepting the award for best picture, she intrigued audiences by saying “We’re giving this one to our wolf,” followed by a long howl. It was later explained behind the scenes that McDormand was playing tribute to the film’s sound mixer, Michael Wolf Snyder, who died last month at the age of 35. Minutes later, McDormand returned to the stage to collect the lead actress trophy, delivering the shortest acceptance speech of the night that mixed a Macbeth quote with a suggestion for an Oscar karaoke bar.

Daniel Kaluuya at the Oscars


In his moving acceptance speech, winning Daniel Kaluuya, paid tribute to the Black Panthers and Fred Hampton, the character he played in Judah and the Black Messiah. Kaluuya also made a comment that made her mother cringe and her sister buried her head in her hands. Opening his speech with heartfelt thanks to his family, he closed it by thanking his parents again, this time for having sex so that he could be born, a response that did not go smoothly with his relatives present.

Kaluuya then participated in a rare entertainment on the night, which saw Glenn Close show off his musical knowledge – and his dancing skills. The quiz involved participants trying to identify a song segment and guess if the song was an Oscar winner, an Oscar nominee, or none of that. After shaky responses from Kaluuya and Andra Day, Close nailed her question and correctly identified a clip of Da Butt written by Marcus Miller and performed by the DC group Experience Unlimited from the 1988 Spike Lee film, School Daze. She then took her knowledge to the next level by doing the song’s signature dance move to the delight of viewers who called Close a true icon on Twitter.


Besides Pitt, who also drew attention with his manly bun, stealing the spotlight at the Oscars were presenters Halle berry, also for her new hairstyle, which blew up Twitter, and Harrison ford, for his little reading of the brutal Blade runner editing notes given after a screening of the cinema classic.

Despite avoiding a traditional comedic opening number, the Oscars had a memorable intro, with along first shoot with Regina king make introductory remarks while walking from the outdoor terrace, across the 1930s Art Deco Union Station where the main ceremony was held at the Oscars stage.
