The 95th Academy Awards is criticized for a major omission from the annual memorial segment.
Each year, the Academy prepares a montage of the greatest film professionals who have died in the last year, with Lenny Kravitz appearing as part of this year’s In Memoriam, initiated by John Travolta.
While he likes Cocaine bearRay Liotta i GreaseOlivia Newton-John, viewers were quick to point out that Charlbi Dean did not appear in the televised part, despite having a starring role in the Best Picture nominee Triangle of Sorrow.
The academy has published online a complete list of industry professionals who died last year, which included Dean.
“Can someone explain to me why Charlbi Dean was NOT included in the ‘In Memoriam’ tribute even though she was part of the cast Triangle of Sorrowone of this year’s Best Picture nominees???” one person he asked.
Another person complained: “Forgetting Charlbi Dean in In Memoriam when she is literally the star of the Best Picture nominee is wild #Oscars.”
“Charlbi Dean felt like a huge omission from Im Memorium considering her movie is nominated today” – another viewer recorded.
Charlbi died last summer with bacterial sepsis after being hospitalized with seemingly trivial symptoms in New York City. Unfortunately, Dean died a few hours after being rushed to the hospital.
The South African actress had recurring roles in Spade films in his country and also appeared in DC Black Lightningbefore breaking out as Yaya’s model in the Palme d’Or winner Triangle of Sorrow.
At the time of her death, The Sadnes TriangleDirector Ruben Ostlund called Dean’s sudden death at the age of 32 “a shock and a tragedy”.
“It’s an honor to get to know her and work with her. Charlbi had a care and sensitivity that lifted her colleagues and the entire film crew,” the filmmaker wrote on social media.
“The thought that she will not be by our side in the future makes me very sad.”
Triangle of Sorrow it received a total of three Oscar nominations, including Best Picture, Best Original Screenplay and Best Director for Ostlund.
It’s no surprise that viewers will notice someone missing from the In Memoriam montage, as comedian and actor Bob Saget, as well as rocker Meat Loaf, were omitted from last year’s show.
