The Best Original Song winner, "Lose Yourself" from 8 Mile (2002), was not performed at the ceremony. Reportedly, ABC asked Eminem to perform an edited version of the rap, but he refused (and did not attend the ceremony nor pick his Oscar up). It was the first time since the Awards were first telecast that the Best Original Song winner was not performed.

Quotes
Herself - Best Supporting Actress Winner: Thank you so much my Scotsman giving the Welsh here, I can't believe it. Oh my gosh. This is too - I mean, my hormones are just too way out of control to be dealing with this. But, thank you so much, the Academy. To be nominated with such amazing women and an amazing year for women. Thank you very much. Everyone involved in "Chicago". There's so many people involved. Rob Marshall, Harvey Weinstein, Craig, Neil and everybody, all the cast and crew. Everybody in Swansea, South Wales, I love you. And to my son Dylan who is going to be watching at home. And to my husband, who I love and I share this award with you, along with this one, too. Thank you so much.
