    Default Brad Renfro skipped in Oscar memoriam montage

    They Just Didn't Have Time For Brad Renfro




    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!

    That sucks, I guess they can't include everyone but it's harsh.

    I just read...
    Oscar-nominated “Jaws” star Roy Scheider also was not included. His death on Feb. 10 fell outside the time frame of the tribute video, which covered Feb. 1, 2007 to Jan. 31, 2008.

    So he will be included at next year's awards

    I'm sorry, but I don't feel bad. There are lots of other actors who died this past year besides Renfro and they weren't all listed in the montage. Last I recall, the montage was really for Academy members and former members not just those in "Hollywood."

    I think it was Hollywood elitism at it's worst. Because he was thought as a low rent junky. He was a talented actor, he was in some great movies, this was a
    shame. He died with one drug in his system, Heath with, what, 5 or 6?

    Is it really just Academy members? Where all the European directors and actors members? I too noticed that he wasn't included and it sucks.

    No it's not just Academy members. For whatever reason they couldn't be arsed to include him, which is wrong. It only takes a second to flash his picture and name up on screen!

    I also noticed that they didn't include him, but I wasn't surprised. I had a feeling they weren't going to.
