CATEGORIES Movie NewsIt happens every year: a beloved celeb gets left out of the annual Oscars In Memoriam segment. So who ended up getting snubbed this year?
Andy Griffith was the most noticeable star not on the list. The actor, who passed away last July, rose to prominence with his role in Elia Kazan's "A Face in the Crowd," along with the television series "The Andy Griffith Show" and "Matlock." Actor Alex Karras also missed out on the memorial tribute. Karras had starred in films including "Blazing Saddles" and "Buffalo '66." Another big omission: Richard Dawson, who, in addition to his hosting duties on "Family Feud," appeared in such films as "The Running Man" and the TV show "Hogan's Heroes."
However, as Deadline points out, those three ended up getting honored on the Academy's website, in a gallery paying tribute to those we lost this past year. Granted, there were even more snubs on there, with actress Phyllis Diller and Sherman Hemsley missing the cut.
As we learned earlier this month, the In Memoriam segment is more difficult to get on then you'd think, with families of deceased actors and celebrities having to campaign to be included.
