Here's TCM's In Memoriam. Ann was there, naturally.

Yes, I've of course seen this. And TCM remembers everyone as TCM is one the greatest thing for movies since...movies. And movie lovers only refer to TCM's In Memoriam Reel. The Academy is apparently not so in love with movies. They appear to be in love with time limits, alas.


Marty Richards, who produced CHICAGO, passed away in 2012. They homaged his Best Picture twice, but left him out of the montage. Mind boggling!


They also left out the wonderful Joyce Redman, who received two Oscar nominations as Best Supporting Actress, for "Tom Jones" and "Othello". Along with the omission of former nominee Susan Tyrrell, whom you cited above, the Academy has thus stated that even their own nominations aren't good enough qualifications to be remembered once you're dead.

She was an absolute delight on Huell Howser's California's Gold show a few years ago. How can the Academy blunder year after year? Sad.
