The Academy Awards In Memoriam section may have included Chuck Berry but it left out some significant names yesterday.
Actors John Mahoney, Robert Guillaume, Jim Nabors, Powers Boothe, John Hillerman, Reg E. Cathey, Della Reese, Rose Marie and Adam West were not mentioned.
Some of those names may arguably be Television stars, best remembered by the Emmys, but where were John Gavin, Nanette Fabray, and Miguel Ferrer?
Dorothy Malone, who won an Oscar for Written on the Wind (1956), was not mentioned in the segment.
Glen Campbell starred in the 1969 film True Grit and was nominated for best original song, I’m Not Going to Miss You, in 2015.
And director Tobe Hooper of Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Poltergeist fame was also overlooked.
