This pisses me off about 2009/2010's two Oscar in memorials:
81st Oscars: Several notable individuals including Sam Bottoms, George Carlin, Don S. Davis, Mel Ferrer, Beverly Garland, Estelle Getty, Eartha Kitt, Harvey Korman, Jerry Reed, Don LaFontaine, John Phillip Law, Patrick McGoohan, Anita Page, and Robert Prosky were not included in the "In Memoriam" tribute, though they died within the last year. Heath Ledger died shortly before the year before, and a tribute to him was included then.
82nd Oscars: In Memoriam tribute included only 30 of the over 100 entertainment figures who had died during the previous year. Among the celebrities that were omitted from the montage were Farrah Fawcett, Captain Lou Albano, Zelda Rubinstein, Ed McMahon, Henry Gibson, Wayne Allwine and Bea Arthur. Film critic Roger Ebert criticized the omission of Fawcett on Twitter. There was also dissatisfaction over the inclusion of Michael Jackson in the montage, as he was also not principally known for work in film.
Sorry - there's no excuse for bad manners.
