A-way affecting, but some users are upset over the social networks. The reason for this ? They did not like that Luke Perry and Cameron Boyce (disappeared at the age of 20 years) are not quoted.

An error on the part of the Oscars 2020 ? A simple clumsiness ? The Academy explained in a press release published by Deadline : “The Academy receives hundreds of requests to include family members and industry colleagues in this sequence In Memoriam at the Oscars. An executive committee representing each branch reviews the list and makes his selection for the live broadcast based on the time available, often limited. All submissions are included on the site and will remain on it throughout the year. Thus, Luke Perry and Cameron Boyce are recognized in the gallery of the site.” Convinced ?
