The Oscars left a lot of people angry last night for several reasons, but the biggest reason, several actors were left out of the award show’s annual Memorium segment.

Introduced by Steven Spielberg and featuring a rendition of Grammy winner Billie Eilish singing “Yesterday”, the Memorium failed to honor Luke Perry, Cameron Boyce, Jan Michael Vincent, Tim Conway, Michael J. Pollard, Robert Conrad, Cameron Boyce, Rene Auberjonois, Valentina Cortese, Carol Lynley, Sue Lyon, and horror icon Sid Haig who had over 147 roles to his credit. Several of the missing actors were award winners and nominees, leaving viewers questioning just what it takes to make it into the segment.

This is not the first time actors have been passed over, it seems to happen every year making people wonder if there is a bias. The problem can’t be the time of death, Kirk Douglas passed away last week and was featured in a place of honor at the segment’s end. So, what is the problem? Or should I say what’s the excuse?

All I can say to the Acadamy Awards committee is shame on you. That’s some serious bullsh*t!




Fans took to Twitter to express their feelings on the missing actors.
