Home Movies Oscars Other In Memoriam Snub Was Elaine Stritch, As Well as Joan...

I wish I understood what went on behind the scenes at the Academy. They snubbed Joan Rivers from the In Memoriam segment. But left out also was Broadway, TV, and film actress Elaine Stritch.

Stritch appeared in plenty of movies, including two by Woody Allen– “September” and “Small Time Crooks.” She had more than a dozen film credits, which is a dozen more than the writer Gabriel Garcia Marquez whose books and stories were turned into movies — probably against his will.

Elaine Stritch in “Romance and Cigarettes”:

  1. Well Joan Rivers made comments about Michelle Obama and that was most likely the reason.
    We watched PBS all night. When I flipped channels to see the Oscars it was always on commercials so that was that. Also somewhat peeved that women stars get paid far less than men stars yet filmmakers film in Canada and elsewhere to avoid U.S. taxes. We find that hypocritical. We absolutely love J.K.Simmons. All time favourite actor. Love his Farmers Ins. commercials. He is soooo cool. Very sexy!

  2. And furthermore,

    A “Stitch” in time saves nine …
    A “River” runs through it …
    These two women & their body of work
    speaks volumes …
    Not to be recognized by the “industry”
    is a travesty pure & simple …
    No accounting for cl”ass” or lack there of …

  3. Ok, here is what I think …
    Academy Awards is such a grandiose venue,
    so boring and yawn worthy …
    Actually how about adding some entertainment value to this
    long drawn out cringeworthy telecast …
    To omit two such diverse women, as well as
    other very noteworthy people, is basically
    a slap in the face …
    Talent is talent !
    “Oscar” should be redfaced & embar”ass”ed …
    No shade …
    Fade to black …

  4. I AM NOT SURE IF SNUB IS CORRECT.
    I THINK THAT THEY WERE FORGOTTEN OR OVER LOOKED. ANY WAY I FEEL THAT THE ACADAMY SHOULD PRINT AN APOLOGY ELAINE STRITCH AND JOAN RIVERS WERE TWO AMAZING WOMEN AND SHOULD BE REMEMBERED IN A LOVING WAY
