    Default Silence for Charlton Heston at the Academy Awards

    We lost one of the greatest stars in movie history in the last 12 months. Yet when Charlton Heston appeared for the In Memoriam section - dead silence. You could have heard a pin drop. How disappointing as Charlton Heston deserved so much more.

    Maybe he can pry some applause from our cold dead hands.

    It is sad. Perhaps, like me, they didn't realize he had died this year and were surprised.

    Ben Hur's chariot scene is still one of the best movie scenes ever.

    Well, at least Heston got mentioned. Can't say the same for Eartha Kitt.

    Yes, "a freaking standing ovation" would have been appropriate. The guy was a legend and didn't deserve silence during his memorian. Geez.
