The “In Memoriam” The Way It Should Have Been.Posted: March 7, 2009
For all those frustrated by the dumbass way the Oscars showed this year’s “In Memoriam” film — making us watch a multitude of small screens on the Kodak Theatre stage, rather than showing us the film full-frame on the home screen — here is a nice present from someone inside the Academy. It’s the same piece they ran that night, so it doesn’t redress the problem of all the people who should have made it into the film who didn’t, and we’re still stuck with Queen Latifah’s weirdly re-structured version of “I’ll Be Seeing You”; but at least this shows us the tribute the way the film editors wanted us to see it, and without distracting applause-o-meter sounds from the audience to signal us who their darlings are.
