    A crew member was killed on the set of the Gregg Allmann biopic in Georgia last week. There is now a big grassroots campaign to have her mentioned in the memoriam to bring attention to the issue of lax safety on some sets. It seems to be gaining steam.

    I doubt she is included, but if not, expect more headaches and negative PR.

    This is undoubtedly a tragic loss, and condolences to her friends and family, but surely it would be inappropriate to include her in the In Memoriam segment. She was a crew member, not a well-known or celebrated contributor to the medium. There must be more effective ways than 5 seconds on an Oscar telecast to bring attention to safety regulations.

    The effective thing they are doing is using the publicity to get into the segment as a way to bring attention to the issue, and when they are rejected (the official reason will be “too late for this year” – they better not include Harold Ramis then, who of course will be on this year’s or next) turn that into more publicity for their very worthy cause.
