Luke Perry, Cameron Boyce, More Stars Snubbed at 2020 Oscars In Memoriam Segment

Published

Luke Perry was snubbed during the 2020 Oscars.

This year’s Oscars paid tribute to the stars who didn’t make it this year; however, several fans got upset about some names being forgotten during the ceremony.

During the memorial segment from Billie Eilish, as a Grammy award-winning singer, names like Kobe Bryant, Kirk Douglas, Peter Mayhew, Rip Torn, Danny Aiello, Doris Day, John Singleton and Peter Fonda were honored.

For the superstar basketball player, Bryant, who won an Oscar award in 2018, for “Dear Basketball”, a short-animated film. He narrated the movie based on the poem he wrote when he retired in 2015.

Furthermore, big stars like Luke Perry of Beverly Hills 90210 and Riverdale, Jan-Michael Vincent, Michael Pollard, Cameron Boyce, and the likes were snubbed.

The biggest snub would have had gone to Pollard as he was nominated in 1968 as the best supporting actor in the Bonnie and Clyde movie. He got into more than 100 TV shows and a lot of videos, including Scrooged and Tango and Cash.

Perry, on the other hand, was nominated for the movie “Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood”. De died at the age of 52 from a massive stroke in March 2019, whereas Vincent was nominated in the Golden Globes in 1971 and 1982.

Boyce is known for portraying roles in Jessie, and the Descendants died when he was only 20 years old. He died of epilepsy in July last year.

They are said to be a report that Oscars was struggling including everyone in the Memoriam segment. Last year’s Oscars left out Carol Channing, Gary Kurtz, and Stanley Donen.

Fans quickly noticed the absence of the names of their stars. There were different reactions from the viewers, and they pointed them out in their social media.

Here are some of them:
“shame on the academy for not including Luke Perry in the “in memoriam” tribute. seeing as ‘once upon a time in Hollywood’ was the last film he made before he passed AND it was up for the best picture, I have no words other than I’m disappointed,” said one Twitter user.

Another one tweeted, “Wait a minute? Let me see if I understand this…the Oscars had Memoriam, and somehow Luke Perry was excluded despite that he’s in one of the nominated films?!”

One was also so disappointed, saying, “Every year the In-Memoriam leaves people out that died and there is backlash minutes after it airs. Can the Academy tweet out a list of who they plan to honor the weeks before and check the responses to see who they missed?”

The Hollywood Reporter took on its Twitter saying, “The in-Memoriam segment at the #Oscars surprisingly did not include Luke Perry and horror legend Sid Haig, as well as Cameron Boyce, the actor who tragically died in July at the age of 20.”
