I removed the reference to the Madonna-Britney-Christina kiss as there is no evidence or source that this was a reference to the Brody kiss. Rather, it seemed a typical attempt at titilation for the viewers.
Image:Oscars2002.JPG is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.
If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.
I think it would be appropriate to include some information regarding the award for Best Original Song - "Lose Yourself" from 8mile. In spite of winning the award, Eminem did not perform the song. I wonder if this had ever previously occurred (the other four nominated songs were all performed by their respective artists). I remember reading somewhere along the line that the reason for this was because the producers would not allow Eminem to perform the song unedited (i.e. - in its "explicit" version), therefore he refused to perform. I would think this would be considered quite a slight to the rest of the Academy; that someone would refuse to perform in, or even attend, an awards ceremony in which they ultimately received the prize. What is the consensus on this matter? Assuming verifiable research unearths some significant information regarding this subject, should it be included?Kp.murphy (talk) 17:14, 18 May 2010 (UTC)
