Gunnar Hansen, Angus Scrimm and Jacques Rivette are also missing from montage of deceased Hollywood stars
Dave Grohl sang a moving rendition of “Blackbird” along with the yearly In Memoriam tribute at the 2016 Academy Awards, and just like always, some names were left off the list.
“The Godfather” star Abe Vigoda, “Rocky” star Tony Burton and Uggie, the dog star of Best Picture Oscar winner “The Artist,” were just a few who were not included.
While the montage paid tribute to various figures in the entertainment industry, including high profile actors David Bowie and Alan Rickman, they also left off such influential figures as French New Wave director Jacquette Rivette and actor Gunnar Hansen, who played Leatherface in the “Texas Chainsaw Massacre” movies.
Portuguese filmmaker Manoel de Oliveira and horror actor Angus Scrimm were also left off of the montage.
