A Very Disappointing Omission at the Academy Awards

February 24, 2015

I was very disappointed in the portion of the Academy Awards known as “In Memoriam,” the tribute to some of the film community who died since the last Academy Awards a year ago.

Having many behind the scenes people is understandable but some really great people and performers were omitted, among them Joan Rivers, best known for television and stage comedy but a pioneer in so called “Red Carpet” Academy Award shows and someone who was in film.

Also disappointing to me is the fact the presentation used only still pictures of those cited. This is about the MOVING PICTURE industry.

No Mickey Rooney in “Boys Town.” The presentation was too short. Why the song after? Put it with the film and get more people in the tribute. What a disappointment!

There is almost nothing to look forward to regarding this show which once provided such precious memories.

Joan Rivers--should have been included
