Olivia Newton-John has been remembered as part of The Oscars’ In Memoriam segment.

Her “Grease” co-star John Travolta introduced the segment, emotionally recalling that many people who have been lost over the past year were great friends “who we will always remain hopelessly devoted to” – a reference to their 1978 film together.

Newton-John was the first of many actors, producers and industry personalities who were remembered while Lenny Kravitz performed “Calling All Angels” on the piano.

The Australian actress and singer died in August last year, aged 73.

She was then remembered by Hollywood for her voice, performances and kindness.

In addition to “Grease”, Newton-John also starred in “Xanadu” (1980) and a host of other films.

She also had a number of iconic and enduring songs including “Physical” and “I Honestly Love You”.

You can keep up to date with all the Oscars winners here. So far, “Everything Everywhere All at Once” has dominated proceedings.

At the time of writing, Australian nominees have not yet taken home any aways. “Elvis”, from Australians Baz Luhrmann and Catherine Martin, has not yet won any awards, however it remains in the running for Best Picture.

Cate Blanchett is also in the running for Best Lead Actress for her role in Tár.
