Actor and comedian Bob Saget was oddly left out of the “In Memoriam” segment of the show, which pays tribute to all of the individuals who passed away over the past year. The Full House star and comedian passed away back in January.
Saget was a Student Academy Award winner himself, winning back in 1977 for his black-and-white documentary, “Through Adam’s Eyes.”
People also pointed out the fact that other stars who passed away last year, like actor Ed Asner, Norm MacDonald, actor and musician Meat Loaf, and actor-director Robert Downey Sr., were also left out of the Memoriam, according to the New York Post.
However, actors Sidney Pointer and Betty White were both named.
Needless to say, Twitter took notice of Saget’s strange omission and they were PISSED:
Actually leaving Bob Saget out of the In Memoriam was the most outrageous part of the Oscars
The Oscars leaving out Bob Saget and Norm Macdonald from the In Memoriam montage is more disrespectful than Chris Rock’s joke. Dirty Work is better than at least half the Best Picture nominees. I want slap justice. Every show and segment producer should be lined up for a slap. pic.twitter.com/fuSBj7NEPv
The only thing I’ll say about the #oscars is that they had three and half months to add Bob Saget to the In Memoriam section and they didn’t do it. You just insert the image in the timeline. It’s not hard. I guess that’s one more thing they didn’t have time for this year.
Missed the Oscars but how do they leave Bob Saget, Norm McDonald, Ed Asner, Anne Rice, Louis Anderson and Joan Didion off the In Memoriam video? In the “you had one job” category those are some embarrassing oversights.
