Luke Perry Snubbed In Oscars ‘In Memoriam’ Segment
Luke Perry, along with other beloved actors, was left out of the Oscars 2020 “In Memoriam” segment on Sunday.
Perry, who is best known for roles in 90210 and Riverdale, was not included in the segment though he had a cameo in Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, which was nominated for Best Picture and won two Oscars during the night.
As Billie Eilish performed “Yesterday” by the Beatles, celebrities like Kobe Bryant, Kirk Douglas, and Peter Fonda appeared on screen, but some fans noticed some of their favorite actors were snubbed.
Twitter users were quick to point out that missing from the list was 20-year-old Disney Channel actor Cameron Boyce.
cameron boyce had such a huge impact into a lot of people’s lives including people in the film industry. just cause his career centered mostly around disney didnt make him any less of an actor. him being left out of the in memoriam just felt wrong.

Horror and cult film actor Sid Haig, famous for House of 1,000 Corpses, was also missing from the list.
are you kidding me? Luke Perry was IN one of the films NOMINATED, Sid Haig is a literal ICON in the horror genre, and Cameron Boyce was one of the biggest stars to come out of Disney in the last 10 years. https://t.co/pMG7vOafaO

Apparently being in over 100 films and 400 television shows isn’t enough to be included on the memoriam broadcast. Sid Haig not being included in the Memoriam at the #Oscars was an expected but disrespectful moment. This is an insult to the horror community. pic.twitter.com/0OOravNDFw

Other users pointed out others absent from the segment like Tim Conway, best known for playing Mister Tuddball and The Oldest Man in The Carol Burnett Show; Michael Pollard, who was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor as CW Moss in Bonnie and Clyde in 1967; and Jan-Michael Vincent, who played Matt Johnson in the 1978 film Big Wednesday.

So sad not to see Jan Michael Vincent in Memoriam at the Oscars. At one time he was a big star. Did one of his first films Baby Blue Marine. Gone but not forgotten. You were the sweetest and best, my man.

The Academy has since updated its “In Memoriam” slideshow on its website to include everyone mentioned in this story.
