THE BEST THING THAT THE ACADEMY OF MOTION PICTURES DO IT TO BANISH IT , IT ISD A SHAME AS IN THE PAST OSCARS WERE GIVEN TO BEST PERFORMERS NOWDAYS TO ANYONE WHO DOES NOT SPEAK ENGLISH AN AWARD I GIVEN THE ACADEMY IS A FLOP
Worst memorial segment! It’s ridiculous to leave out so many like Luke Perry and give Kobe Bryant the most time. Segment went far too fast and was done so poorly, like someone put it together in 5 minutes. Very disappointing.
A very important place for preserving and fostering the cultural art of film and media.
How about an Oscar for Doris Day??
Congratulations, Academy - you have finally achieved it, not to honor Doris Day in her lifetime!☹️
