Every year during the Oscars, the Academy take time to remember fellow members of the movie industry that died during the passed year. Some are big names and some less known by the general public. I think the ideal is a nice gesture because we may had missed someone during the year that passed over.This year, and most recently, was marked by the death of Heath Ledger, and of course, they finished with him. But I also expected that they would had included Brad Renfro that died the week before him. He did have some known movies like: The Jacket, Apt Pupil, The Client and the upcoming The Informers.

Was it a blunder by the Oscars or the wish of the family? What were the criteria to be included in the montage?

Anyway, congrats to all winners even if I did not see most of those movies yet. At least, I can rent them. ;)
