Where were Andy Griffith, Larry Hagman, and other important Hollywood figures snubbed from this year’s Oscars ‘In Memoriam’ reel tonight? The annual segment paid tribute to dozens of the stars and filmmakers who passed away in the last year, including Ernest Borgnine, Michael Clarke Duncan, Best Costume Oscar nominee Eiko Ishioka, Ray Bradbury, Richard D. Zanuck, and even Beastie Boy/Oscilloscope exec Adam Yauch. But they couldn’t squeeze in everyone. So the Academy posted a supplementary online gallery to cover its bases with a slideshow honoring those who didn’t make the telecast. Over 100 departed talents who passed away in the last year including Hagman, Griffith, Harry Carey Jr, Ann Rutherford, David R. Ellis, Nagisa Oshima, Donna Summer, Susan Tyrrell, Alex Karras, director Mel Stuart and Gore Vidal earned non-broadcast mentions. Yet there were even more snubs: Actress Phyllis Diller, Native American icon Russell Means, actress Lupe Ontiveros, actor Robin Sachs, actor Sherman Hemsley, puppeteer Jerry Nelson and actor Conrad Bain didn’t warrant mentions in the Academy’s online gallery. Who else missed the cut?
