This year, the biggest controversy surrounded the 'In Memoriam' segment.
Billie Eilish and her brother Finneas performed a beautiful rendition of The Beatles' "Yesterday" as the images of those in the film industry that we lost this year scrolled overhead.
There was no mention of 20-year-old movie star Cameron Boyce, who died in July of 2019, or of longtime star Luke Perry, who passed away at 52 in March.
Perry's final role was a spot in Best Picture nominee Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, so many felt that his exclusion was particularly egregious.
This included Sid Haig, who passed away in 2019 at the age of 80 after many years as a horror icon, appearing in films like House of 1000 Corpses, The Devil's Rejects, and 3 from Hell.
Spade worked with Cameron Boyce on the comedy films Grown Ups and Grown Ups 2.
“The Academy receives hundreds of requests to include loved ones and industry colleagues in the Oscars ‘In Memoriam’ segment,” the statement read.
They then pointed out that every submission is included on the Oscars website.
Some of these fans felt that other celebrities were included who could have been replaced with Boyce or Perry, but unfortunately it is tough to quantify how important a celebrity or public figure is.
Do you think this is a justifiable reason to leave Perry and Boyce out, or do you think it was too big of an oversight? Let us know in the comments!
