THIS IS AN OUTRAGE!

..sigh..

It may not be a snub, but that they simply couldn't verify that they had the rights to show these people's faces during a live broadcast.  It could be the families saying they don't want it, or it could be the fact that the bulk of Cory Monteith's career was not in film.

There, you can all turn off your screech helmets and go home.

Etchy333: It may not be a snub, but that they simply couldn't verify that they had the rights to show these people's faces during a live broadcast.


I am unaware that rights was an issue.  The Academy has the rights to use all those film clips, as far as I understand.  Though if you have citations or further information, I am curious.
 
2014-03-03 10:53:31 AM  
Corey Monteith was in television.  That's like being a liter.  He doesn't deserve recognition.   But Dennis Farina and especially Jonathan Winters deserved a shout out.  Winters was in 72 movies, fer chrissakes.
 
2014-03-03 10:54:02 AM  
More upset that Jonathan Winters was left off.

Also, Jonathan Winters died?

TIL he did not, in fact, play Billy "Get yer shinebox" Batts in Goodfellas.
 
2014-03-03 11:00:52 AM  
Corey Monteith is only super famous for one thing, and that's Glee. Glee has a very limited fan base and frankly he had no reason to be included.

Harold Ramis on the other hand should have had his own montage.
 
2014-03-03 11:02:40 AM  

Lsherm: Corey Monteith was in television.


True, but in the past they've been very liberal with some people's involvement in film.  See, e.g., Michael Jackson.
 
2014-03-03 11:09:44 AM  
An extended piece online honored more than 100 Hollywood contributors.

A link.  I wonder if it's the video montage... (click)

For fark's sake, it's a slideshow, and it links right to Monteith's slide.

Oh, shiat...comments?  Don't read the comments, don't read the comments...

/I looked at the trap, Ray.

fruitloop: Oh, shiat...comments? Don't read the comments, don't read the comments...


To what are you referring?  I took a look at 99% of the comments are "He deserved to be included in the live show".

No, that was Phil Leotardo.  Who said he played Billy Batts?
 
2014-03-03 11:28:47 AM  
Maybe they have quotas, only so many drug deaths per montage or something.

At least they cut out the applause for each dead person, that's always awkward.

Agreed, but maybe they didn't have time to put it together before the Oscars? They had a month to get Hoffman's ready, but only a week for Ramis.

And he was in The Wiz.  My point was that some people have a relatively tenuous relationship with "film" and have still been included, so I don't fully accept "he was primarily a TV actor" as an excuse for omission.

I know it's been said. But Dennis M.F. Farina.

Sad state of affairs when the article outrage focuses on Cory Monteith who had minor roles in film at best and Farina is in the "also left out" list. Shameful.

No, being a television actor is way worse than being a liter. I have more respect for porn stars.

it was nice of Bill Murray to mention Ramis' movies during his rundown of Best Pictures

i thought that was cute and classy

Or Farrah Fawcett, whom they left off for being a tv person. I think she was only in one or two movies but one was that tank top in Cannonball Run.

Alfonse Gregory: I know it's been said. But Dennis M.F. Farina.

I was surprised by that, too. Especially since Monteith got a special tribute at the Emmys while someone like Jack Klugmen did not.
Personally, I'm much more irked that Dennis Farina, Jonathon Winters and Ed Lauter were left off.

It's okay, Harold Ramis already got an awesome tribute with Bill Murray presenting the Cinematography award.

Harold Ramis wrote, directed and/or starred in some of the best comedy films of the last 40 years.

Cory Monteith played a teenager well into his 30s on "Karaoke: the Series".

Hmm, who's more deserving of a spot in the Oscar's "In Memoriam" montage?
 
2014-03-03 12:42:24 PM  
I didn't even notice Farina wasn't on it. That's wrong.

Dennis Farina is in heaven, sitting low in an old padded office chair, about to explode with a "Why don't you take a look at this?!"

Either that or  "Yeah. Don't go to Hollywood. You know, sushi, kale, vitamin water, bad air, worse surgery, Kim farking Kardashian...HOLLYWOOD."

Pretty much this. Outside of Glee viewers, nobody knows nor gives a shiat about this guy. "But he was sooo cute and awesome at pretending to sing on camera!" isn't a reason to include him in the "in memoriam" bit.

They left him out?  WTF?!

He was great in "Bottleshock".

Not for nothing, but in addition to The Wiz (which was nominated for 4 Oscars) Michael Jackson also did the theme songs for Ben, Free Willy , and Free Willy 2, in addition to having a movie (This is It) in theaters shortly before the Oscars that year. That in addition to all the times his music has appeared in movies puts him a head and shoulders above Monteith, who's film credits consist of a bunch of slasher flicks and movies where he plays characters with names like "Tammy's Date".
 
2014-03-03 12:58:13 PM  
It's almost as if Hollywood is some kind of heartless, inhuman, soulless industry. This is really surprising.
 
2014-03-03 01:01:50 PM  
Tacked on at the end of TFA:
Bette Midler made her Oscars singing debut during the segment, performing the '80s classic "Wind Beneath My Wings."

I didn't participate in the Oscars thread, but was there a sudden decrease in the rate of posts when this came on?  She put the entire audience to sleep.

Stop comparing this kid to Michael Jackson NOW. Regardless of what you think of MJ, he was a cultural icon. This kid was on a tv show that as far as I know a vast majority of people dont care for.

Forget cultural plateaus they dont even rank on the same planet.
 
2014-03-03 01:27:52 PM  
I'm glad they left him out.  Glee is garbage, and the less attention it gets the better.

Crewmannumber6: I didn't even notice Farina wasn't on it. That's wrong.


I did and I couldn't understand it.

It was kind of like when the Academy snubbed Don LaFontaine after he passed away.  While he wasn't on-screen much, he was quite literally the voice of the movies for several decades preceeding his death.

There is a difference between primarily and exclusively. Monteith had no film credits whatsoever.
