List of missing characters from “In Memoriam” of Oscar 2019
Do you know that one of the best moments of the Oscars is definitely the In Memoriam revision? This is the place to honor the characteristics of the film world that disappeared in the year. And that, on time, forget some of them. Last year, Dorothy Malone and Adam West were unjust and unfair. This year, this went on with actress Carol Channing, who died on January 15 and nominated for an Oscar in 1967 for the movie Millie. Also, we can mention the producer of American Graffiti, Star Wars, Dark Crystal and many other movies. Actor Gary Kurtz, who died in September, and many other great characters… are also on this list. And apparently, this has become the tradition of Oscar.
And… the disappearance of dedication characters makes Twitter verse more bustling than ever. A series of sharing from celebrities constantly shared. There were some notable names who missing from Hollywood’s most important night of the year.
First of all, it is the disappearance of the great and prolific character Dick Miller. He died on January 30. Miller began his acting career in the 1950s at the theater before moving to Los Angeles. He started his six-decade career in films with hundreds of credits. Miller is the best for his role in director Joe Dante’s Gr Grlinsins and its sequel, The Gremlins 2: The New Batch. Also, he became a symbol of the film village for a while. Therefore, his absence made the audience disappointed. Official Twitter account for genre film festival based on L.A. Beyond Fest tweeted a brief message. They said if @theacademy will not remember Dick Miller, they will do.
Joe Dante tweeted bitterly about it: “Disappointed to see that Dick Miller removed from Oscar’s In memoriam segment tonight.”
Next was Gary Kurtz, born in 1940 in Los Angeles. In the 1970s, he credited with director George Lucas to create a fantasy world in Star Wars (Star Wars). It has contributed to many colleagues in important ways. The most prominent is the idea that makes the Jedi knights create “divine power” that controls all things. In the face of a difficult film industry, Gary Kurtz devoted all his talents and efforts to the Star Wars. He turned it into a full and standard stature of the fictional film with a bold investment in scenes full of eye-catching space. Kurtz also produced The Empire Strikes Back sequel and Jim Henson’s 1982 fantasy film, The Dark Crystal, and many other works.
In addition, viewers confused when the Academy Award ‘In the segment Memoriam left a notable person. Actress Carol Channing – a theater musical performer. She possesses a high-pitched, unusual and amazing voice that motivates musicals. The actress received a nomination for Best Supporting Actress award for her role in the 1967 film, Modern Pillage. However, she died in January and shortlisted in the memory of those in the showbiz who died in the past year. Role in iconic photos like Hello, Dolly! and gentlemen like Blondes – the main platform in the Golden Age of Hollywood musicals. So many viewers of the Oscar had confused due to Channing’s shortcomings.
Continuing this list is Donen. He is a famous figure with films lasting decades. It includes many images that are inseparable from Hollywood history. Donen had won an honorary Oscar in 1998 for his celebrated established in the film. We can recognize him as the “master of the musical.” Along with directing works like Charade, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers and Damn Yankees, he also directed the Oscar broadcast in 1986. Mistakes are something of a career risk. And the reel has never been subject to more supervision in the current social media era.
The academy did not give any feedback on criticism about Donen. But it certainly has to do with the relentless emphasis on tightening up time. Donen Lam can simply consider too close to the live show. But many movie lovers and others went to Twitter wondering why there was an effort to at least let the director scream from the stage.
And Aretha Louise Franklin is a legendary character not mentioned by Academy. She is an American singer, songwriter, and pianist with the title “Queen of Soul”. Although famous for soul songs, Franklin is also very popular with other genres such as jazz, rock, blues, pop, and R&B. Aretha Franklin. Also, she has an important role and is a legend in the history of American music. She has the power to popularize the essence of Gospel singing into popular music. Female singer and song Respect is the first flag of the feminist movement through music. In addition, her influence was immense for the generation of singers behind her, such as Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Céline Dion. So, people will think that the Academy should take her into “In Memoriam” this year. She is really a talent of every generation.
Fortunately, there are both Ermanno Olmi and Bernardo Bertolucci and Vittorio Taviani. But it is absurd that such important names are outside this important time each year. Since the last 12 months, Oscar has had many major losses for businesses. From actors to filmmakers, the main moving picture characters to people from different media rushed in. Filming tends to be late at the ceremony. It is earlier than the biggest awards given when issues are about to become important. And nothing can become more important than a series of irreplaceable losses of tradition.
However, everyone probably predicted the mistakes of the Academy. It became routine and this year is certainly no different. The typical example is Spike Lee. The best BlacKkKlansman has awarded the Best Film in support of the Green Book. It can say “In Memoriam” is a means for Oscar to self-shine. After all, the 2019 version doesn’t disappoint because of its other successes.
