Oscars In Memoriam Snubs Include Florence Henderson, Garry Shandling (Video)

Alan Thicke and others also absent during tribute to showbiz people who passed away in the past year

Sara Bareilles sang a moving rendition of “Both Sides Now” along with the yearly In Memoriam tribute at the 2017 Academy Awards, and just like always, some names were left off the list.

“Brady Bunch” mom Florence Henderson was a pointed omission, as was comedian and actor Garry Shandling, not to mention “Growing Pains” dad Alan Thicke.

Though all three actors were more known for TV projects rather than films, some TV-centric actors were given a tribute, including Mary Tyler Moore.

Also omitted, perhaps due to timing more than anything else, was “Twister” star Bill Paxton, who died Saturday, just a day before the ceremony. However, Jennifer Aniston, who introduced the In Memoriam segment, mentioned him in her speech.

The emotional segment featured tributes to Gene Wilder, Anton Yelchin, Prince, John Hurt and other stars who died in the past year, and was closed out back-to-back with Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher, saying “May the force be with you” one last time.
