    Bill Paxton got a special tribute at the 89th ceremony because he died too soon before the ceremony but he wasn’t included the following year.

    Exactly! Even if he was mentioned by Jennifer Aniston, he should’ve included the following year.

    Michael J. Pollard was also excluded recently.

    Pollard’s exclusion is unjustifiable.

    The Oscars seemed in a retro Bonnie & Clyde mode, with Faye Dunaway & Warren Beatty presenting Best Picture. So I, too, was surprised their Bonnie & Clyde co-star was overlooked for the In Memoriam segment.

    Oh another thing. Murray Spivak was listed among those who died in 1996, but he had actually died two years earlier. Similarly, Harry Horner was listed among those who died in 1995 but he actually died in 1994.

    If you’ve actually won an Oscar, you should be included in the “In Memorium” segment.

    Absolutely!

    The BAFTAs came under fire for not putting Bob Hoskins on their In Memoriam in 2015. Their reasoning behind his snub was that they only show people’s names on an In Memoriam segment once, so because he had already been featured on the TV Awards’ In Memoriam segment the year before, they weren’t going to feature him again on the film side. That resulted in even more backlash, and rightfully so, because it makes no sense to honor somebody on a TV memoriam and not a film memoriam if somebody worked in both mediums. At least the Oscars remembered to include him.

    How outrageous that is!

    Not the Oscars, but the Emmys In Memoriam this year didn’t include Olivia de Havilland, who had enough television credits in her long career to merit inclusion there.

    Well, this might be a little amusing to some. After the 1990 ceremony, at the age of 15, I wrote the academy about my displeasure of the lack of in memoriam segment. After having watched the five previous years I had remembered some type of these remembrance(s) happening (at least once?) and I was mad that there was none considering the likes of Bette Davis, Barbara Stanwyck, Laurence Olivier, Lucille Ball, etc. having had passed since the last ceremony. I did receive a letter back, I wish I still had this, explaining it was not their duty to do such a thing. My history may be off but I believe within the next couple of years they started doing it every year.
