Let us face the raw, and hurtful, truth.  The Academy never really cared for Adam West.  They snubbed him at the 39th Awards, he didn't even get a nomination for his work as Bruce Wayne on the theatrical movie Batman that year.  As for Glen Campbell, I think he played a crucial part in The Duke picking up the Oscar for True Grit.  John Wayne owed a lot to Campbell for that award.

He was in this awful movie about vampires taking over Malibu.  His character was this older surfer dude who is also a vampire slayer.

/Came out in the late 90s, IIRC.
//Made the mistake of renting it one day.

IMO the worst one was Dorothy Malone.

I mean, OK, you miss others, but, the first question of who to include who should be in the Oscars in Memorium segment should be "Has anyone who WON an Acadamy award died this year?".  Especially in the acting categories.  Yes, she was from the "golden age" hardly anyone these days recalls, but, still.

It proves that he didn't actually have a movie career, and thus didn't really deserve a slot in the in memoriam. Because he's an actor, and his contributions to film would be obvious if he in fact had any.

Every year about 200 Academy members die and it's up to a committee to winnow it down to about 40 names so people don't biatch that the segment went on for half an hour. And every year everybody biatches about the one person they know out of the 160 people who didn't make the cut. And Daily Fail mulches the outrage for clicks.

One thing I noticed about the In Memoriam this year was how shortit was. I mean, anything's better than 2016, but even the Grammys seemed to include a lot...They didn't even mention the guy from M*A*S*H who passed the day before, like they did with Bill Paxton last year.

Adam West held a SAG card and has been in a few movies in his career so he should have been honored in the dead reel.

John Mahoney was another underrated actor who deserved mention.

I'm waiting for the "woke" crowd to tell me all about how this is racist. Notice how it was only white people they forgot this year? Definitely a sign that white people are marginalized or something. Not a mistake, it was only white people they left out, so it's obvious that white people are being targeted...

(See? It sounds stupid, no matter what race you put in there. But some people are bound and determined to write anything into the omission of a minority for something like this. People just fark shiat up. It happens)

I'm not disputing other actors and whether they should be in... my only point is, WINNING A FARKING OSCAR should be like "OK, yeah, we should be honoring you", outside of some sort of Harvey Weinstein reason to not do it.

He was in a movie called 'the new age'. It was on Roger Eberts too 10 films of 1994.

I rented it one weekend and could not find a single thing about that movie to like.  90 mins I'll never get back.

Adam West was a television star.  The Oscars are focused on major motion pictures.  West's highest profile movie role appears to be a voice in Chicken Little.  Not exactly a big deal to skip over him in that one.

An Emmy tribute?  Sure.  But he's not exactly a movie guy.
 
2018-03-05 04:52:42 PM  
If Don Rickles was on the list - then Adam West should be
The only movie i remember Rickles in is Casino and he was good.
Although not a movie and not eligible - He should have been on the list just for that "Gilligan's Island" episode.

Was Adam West a member of the Academy? Being a member of SAG doesn't give instant membership to the Academy.

He was in a movie with Clark Gable and Burt Lancaster. Run Silent Run Deep. One of the better submarine movies. Aslo in Kelly's Heroes. He should of won an Oscar for his appearance in F Troop.

Don Rickles was great in Kelly's Heroes.


It's like Mugato said in the discussion last night: you had only job, Academy Death Roll Person, don't leave out anyone who died.
I may have paraphrased there.
Some years, the Death misses are even more bewildering or insulting.
 
2018-03-05 06:02:42 PM  
Gregg Allman died too.... I consider him way more Hollywood-relevant than Glen Campbell.
