The premise for an interlude on the Oscars was easy: Questlove performed a tune and a chosen superstar had to guess if the tune was ever nominated for or received an Oscar.
The game, run by Judas and the Black Messiah actor Lil Rel Howery in direction of the finish of the Oscars stay present, featured Andra Day, Daniel Kaluuya and Glenn Close.

When it was Close’s flip, EU’s ‘Da Butt’ performed for a few seconds. Howery expressed doubt that Close would know the tune, however she proved him incorrect.
She knew the tune’s identify, who wrote it, what film it was in and the backstory on why it wasn’t nominated.
“Wait a second. Wait a second. That’s ‘Da Butt’,” Close exclaimed in what absolutely was a scripted second. “It was a basic tune by the nice Washington, DC go-go band EU. Shoutouts to Sugar Bear and the Yard Band and the entire DMV.”
And when Howery requested her if she knew the dance, she jumped out of her seat and gyrated accordingly, immediately making it one of the vital talked about moments from the historic 2021 Oscars.

Spike Lee had the tune written for his 1988 movie Faculty Daze, however “my mates on the Oscars missed it,” stated Close, who was bleeped when expressing her disappointment about its lack of a nomination.
Day received her music trivia check for Prince’s ‘Purple Rain’ and in addition bought bleeped within the course of, guessing accurately that it was by no means nominated or received an Oscar. The movie’s rating, sure. The tune, no.

Kaluuya failed with Donna Summer time’s ‘Final Dance.’ It received an Oscar. He stated in any other case, with Close joking he was too younger to recall the Summer time period.
