The Oscars Ceremony In The Movies | In & Out (1997)
In & Out (1997)

This comedy made a bold stab at twisting prejudice into laughs – it’s definitely funnier than Philadelphia, the film that indirectly inspired it – and offers one of the most memorable Oscar-on-screen moments. It happens as newly-garlanded Best Actor Cameron Drake (Matt Dillon) takes to the stage and proceeds to out his old English teacher, Howard Brackett (Kevin Kline), in front of the entire world. This, while more interesting than Gwyneth Paltrow’s Oscar speech, has the unfortunate consequence of unleashing Tom Selleck’s moustache investigate reporter and a phalanx of other pressmen on the small town of Greenleaf, Indiana, where poor Howard and his fiancee (Joan Cusack) suddenly find his sexuality is the story of the day. Cusack scored an Oscar nomination of her own for the film. She didn’t win, but we’d love to have heard that speech.

1 RE: The Oscars Ceremony In The Movies
L: Pelle Whitney's Dead Show some respect! ait a minute. So, because she is dead, a movie magazine/website isn't allowed to mention a scene of a movie she was the star of that was set at an Oscar ceremony? Even when they do an Oscars Ceremony In ? They don't mention her death in the piece and they certainly don't mock her so I think they are being ] respectful. More
