The late Cory Monteith and other stars were notably absent from the 2014 Academy Awards‘ In Memoriam segment last night, sparking debate among fans.
A moving tribute paid homage to stars such as Paul Walker, Shirley Temple, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and James Gandolfini, but omitted other big names.
Bette Midler made her Oscars singing debut during the segment, performing "Wind Beneath My Wings" as a montage of stars we lost flashed on screen.
Notably left off the list were Cory Monteith, Dennis Farina, Jonathan Winters, Dennis Farina, Tom Clancy and Sarah Jones, a camerawoman who recently died.
This isn’t the first such snub; Farrah Fawcett and Corey Haim were not mentioned during the In Memoriam segment of the Oscars in previous years.
Do you think Cory Monteith and the other omitted names deserved to be included? Why do you suppose that some made the cut and others did not?
