John Travolta Chokes Up As He Introduces Memorial Clip Featuring Olivia Newton-John

Each year, the Academy Awards offers an "Oscars In Memoriam" tribute to members of the entertainment industry who have passed away in the year the awards are presenting for. In 2023, the Oscars tapped John Travolta to introduce the memorial.
It was clear that John was emotional as he began explaining who was included in the video this year. John's Grease costar Olivia Newton-John died in 2022 after fighting a battle against cancer.

He said, "In this industry, we have the rare luxury of getting to do what we love for a living, and sometimes getting to do it with people who we come to love. And since tonight is a celebration of the work and the accomplishments of our community in this past year, it is only fitting then that we celebrate those we've lost."

John continued, "Who dedicated their lives to their craft, both in front of and behind the camera; through their immeasurable contributions, each of them left an individual and indelible mark that shared and informed us. They've touched our hearts, they've made us smile, and became dear friends, who we will always remain hopelessly devoted to."

Olivia died at the age of 73 after fighting breast cancer for a number of years. John's wife, Kelly Preston, also died from the same disease.
