John Hughes, who suffered a fatal heart attack last summer at age 59, will be honored at this year's Academy Awards, according to Deadline Hollywood. Keeping with the revamped Oscars theme, the Hughes tribute will be removed from the traditional montage set to melancholy music in favor of a more dynamic tribute.

"The Oscars are planning a separate and special tribute to the writer-director-producer, complete with film and cast members," writes Nikki Finke, who went on to note that Oscar hosts Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin both worked with Hughes, in 'Planes, Trains & Automobiles' and 'She's Having A Baby,' respectively.
