Last night, during the Oscars “In Memoriam” section, I noticed that Brad Renfro was missing from the montage. You guys noticed it too, because I got the e-mails. I figured that maybe he wasn’t a member of the Academy or something? They included 98 movie actors, directors, executives, agents, designers, but didn’t include Brad.
The Academy issued this statement to TMZ,”It is simply not possible to include everyone in that segment.” It would have taken one second. Literally. They should have just said they only include Academy members in the segment.
A friend of mine also noticed they skipped Roy Scheider, but that’s because Roy died after January 31st.
And where was Sam the Butcher?! Damn the Academy!
