This happens every year, submitter, and not just on the Academy Awards. It's happened on the Golden Globes & the Emmys .

I guess Ben Gazzarra really is a scandal now.

Wait a minute, Mongo died? Webster's Dad? I missed that.

Now I'm stuck being sad now instead of whenever that happened.

FTFA: Arguably the most notable omission this year was Andy Griffith, who rose to prominence as the star of Elia Kazan's "A Face in the Crowd" and went on to headline the situational comedy "The Andy Griffith Show" (1960-1968) and the popular legal drama "Matlock" (1986-1985).

Personally, I don't think it's right that they passed over Andy, but I'd bet the rationale is that he's mostly known for TV, not movies. They're wrong, but still...

Same with Alex Karras, not really known for movies, mostly football and TV.

How, exactly, would they be wrong in saying Andy Griffith is mostly known for TV and not movies?

Interesting they mention "A Face in the Crowd" and ignore "No Time for Sargeants".  Griffith was a very versatile man.

Mind blow, bro:

Webster's dad was the corrupt sheriff from the movie Porky's
Webster's mom was the hooker Cherry Forever from the movie Porky's.

And these two were allowed to adopt??

Andy Griffith's ommission is shameful! All his tv work aside, A Face In The Crowd was a seminal film (grow up!) But since it was directed by Elia Kazan, a name that still causes people to spit on the ground when it's mentioned, it may have been an intentional oversight.
 
2013-02-25 08:08:57 AM
Meh. Between 1970 and his death, Griffith was in 6 movies.

I wonder if he was even a SAG member.

Better question:

Who actually gives a crap about the oscars?  What a narcissistic circle-jerk the whole thing is.
 
2013-02-25 08:16:08 AM
Mongo only pawn in game of life.

Apparently the Oscars folks want us talking about them no matter what. If it means being unimpressed about their lack of respect for the loss of dedicated talent, well... at least folks are still talking about the Oscars.

Maybe some folks still think that there's no such thing as bad press...

Seth McFarlane, known more for TV or movies?

No Time for Sergeants is an under-appreciated classic.

The guy that wrote the screenplay for Porky's also wrote the screenplay for A Christmas Story.

Lot's of famous actors dies this year that were worthy of mention, but the Oscars still snubbed:

From the top of my head:

Chad Everett, Richard Lynch (Bad guy from Invasion USA), Jack Klugman, David Kelly (Mr. O'reilly from Fawlty Towers),  Charles Durning, Larry Hagman, Charles Durning (RIP Devil Dog), Willima Windom (Commodore Decker, "The Doomsday Machine") and others I'm sure.

//oh yeah, the guy from "The Green Mile"....

There were some noteworthy omissions, no doubt, but I watched this last night and recall seeing Klugman, Durning, and Duncan.

/also MCA, which was cool

So then should TV critics be included?

The guy was in barely any movies -- only six since 1970 -- that's a fact.

Involvement in the motion picture industry to get your name in the  "In Memoriam" presentation seems like a pretty clear criteria.
 
2013-02-25 09:40:41 AM
Oh, gee... You mean the beautiful, famous, and rich folks couldn't take five minutes away from patting themselves on the back and hogging the limelight to pay respect to other beautiful, famous and rich folks who died?

Damn. What a shame.
 
2013-02-25 09:58:17 AM
I don't care if Andy Griffith made only a handful of movies - A Face in the Crowd and No Time for Sergeants are enduring works that continue to make an impact. He definitely deserved a mention. A Face in the Crowd is one of the most underrated movies. Check it out, if you haven't already.
 
2013-02-25 10:00:56 AM
I cannot watch a weepy, slow motion tribute at this time. It's just not on the schedule.

I'm guessing there were more than a few ridiculous omissions.

Well 6 movies sounds like "involvement" to me
Especially considering the "involvement" of some GOD. the others. Also, you DO realise he was in movies BEFORE. that, right? At least one og them on many lists of "greatest movies ever" due a large part to his incredible performance.
 
2013-02-25 10:16:04 AM
Turner Classic Movies are the go-to folks for end-of-the-year obituary reels.  Hell, Andy Griffith was the very first one the video.
Watch their 2012 reel here:  http://vimeo.com/55815326
 
2013-02-25 10:18:04 AM
I sort of had the sound down during the dead people part but am I wrong or were there no applause during it? It's usually awkward when one dead person gets more applause than another so maybe they asked the audience to hold it. Or maybe I just didn't hear it.

A generation that mostly knew Barbara Stanwyck from Big Valley would be fools not to acknowledge her movie career. The same is true for Andy Griffith. Griffith got his start in the movies. No Time for Sergeants an A Face in the Crowd were big movies of their time. A Face in the Crowd is still a movie that says a lot about our entertainment/political complex.

Yeah, not acknowledging Griffith was a major oversight.
