    Default Eartha Kitt left out of Oscar honors; her PR folks are fighting back

    I know lots of you on GR noticed that she didn't make the video montage / tribute at the Oscars and were upset about it. You weren't imagining it! Not sure what they are hoping to do to remedy it, but here's a starting point story:

    Eartha Kitt's P.R. asks fans to help him in his fight against The Oscars.


    When I saw the Memorial part of the Oscars begin with Queen Latifah singing I knew that they would show Eartha Kitt's face. To my surprise Eartha was no where to be found. I mean the Woman has been in more than FIFTY fucking films! I made it a point to make sure to get in contact with Eartha's people to let them know how upset I was. I was shocked that Eartha's people responded very quickly .



    Here are a few emails if you would like to send your thoughts.

    Here is a video I think that shows off some of her greatest talents:

    That memorial sucked. You couldn't even see half of the people on the screen.

    I prefer when they just show the images with just background instrumental music, as opposed to having someone singing. I was expecting them to show the "whole" screen on TV, not the way they did it. Oh, and they also left out the incredibly funny Harvey Korman...

    I thought it was a bit excessive how much they focused on Paul Newman at the end.

    with that song Queen Latifah was singing it had so much potential. but it looked like a 3rd grader with a camcorder was videotaping it off of the screen. it was so difficult to tell who was what.

    They must have cut Eartha's slide out of the slideshow so they could have an extra 1/20th of a second for Beyonce.

    And I can't believe whoever was directing the Oscars didn't adjust the camera shots to correct that awful mistake of having the memorial barely visible to the viewing audience. It felt like an ad for flatscreens rather than a memorial to the passed.

    She never won an Oscar, but a lot of the people in the montage didn't win Oscars.

    That was the worst memorials I've even seen. The camera kept showing her instead of the deceased panning in and out.
    Into the sunrise. The sunset is sad to me….it only means the night is coming.

    It's unfair that they left her out, if you're going to do that for most actors/actresses, you must do it for all. And 50 films? How could they leave her out?
    I'll admit I dont know who she is, but that doesnt mean she shouldnt be honoured as they do other people who dedicate a lot of time to the film industry are.
