Every year, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences hosts the Oscars, an event that honors the best in the film industry. One of the most anticipated segments of the awards show is the “In Memoriam” tribute. During this segment, the Academy pays tribute to the stars and industry figures who passed away in the past year.

The “In Memoriam” segment is a highly emotional part of the Oscars. It is a moment to remember those who have made significant contributions to the industry and left their mark on the world. This year, John Travolta took the stage to introduce Grammy-winning singer Lenny Kravitz for his upcoming performance.

Travolta’s speech was short but meaningful. He acknowledged that those in the industry have the rare luxury of getting to do what they love for a living and sometimes getting to do it with people who they have come to love. He further stated that each of the departed ones left an immeasurable and indelible mark that shaped and informed us.

As he neared the end of his speech, Travolta’s voice broke, and he choked up, saying the last line of his message. He said, “They touched our hearts, they made us smile and became dear friends…who we will always remain hopelessly devoted to.”

The subtle yet poignant reference to Olivia Newton-John’s popular song, “Hopelessly Devoted To You,” was the perfect addition to Travolta’s already emotional speech. Fans of the two were quick to share Travolta’s sentiments online, agreeing that it was truly a heartbreaking moment for him.

Many fans expressed their support for Travolta, acknowledging that he has been through a lot recently, having lost his wife, Kelly Preston. One fan commented, “We choked up too. JT’s timeless. When listening to his speech, I reflected on his loss of his wife Kelly Preston.” Another person tweeted, “This was such a heartbreaking moment.”

Travolta’s emotional speech was a reminder that the film industry is not just a place of work, but also a community of people who share a passion for their craft. Losing a lifelong friend is incredibly hard, and it is clear that Travolta felt the loss deeply. The “In Memoriam” tribute is a chance for everyone to come together to remember those who have left us, and Travolta’s speech was a poignant reminder of this fact.

After Travolta’s speech, Kravitz performed “Calling All Angels,” a song that wrapped everyone at the show with much emotion. It was a powerful moment that left many in the audience with tears in their eyes. The “In Memoriam” tribute is always a highly emotional part of the Oscars, and this year’s tribute was no exception.
