in the next Academy Awards' "In Memoriam" segment?
Liz died in March, 2011. I don't think they're planning to make her death an annual feature.
The nurse who put the phone call through.
She will be played by Glenn Close. And THAT will be as close to an Oscar as she'll get.
Only so she'll get inducted into the RRHOF.
Probably Ernest Borgnine. He is the final on the TCM memorial segment.
May I write in my vote?
The Streep Loon, dead of self-immolation at Kodak Theater.
The Janet Jackson troll
Could be either Tony Scott or Nora Ephron. I doubt Ben Gazzara will be the final spot.
I hope they don't choose Whitney Houston for her BRIEF film "career."
It should be a two-fer: James Franco and Anne Hathaway.
That "In Memoriam" segment always makes me cringe. It's so rude the way people applaud their favorites, then drop their hands in silence for the ones they don't give a damn about.
What's the cut off date? Maybe the last spot person hasn't died yet...
Since Best Supporting Actress is one of the earliest categories, Anne will have time to OD in time for the In Memorium segment. Hopefully, three time Oscar winner Sally Field takes a brief moment to eulogize her"competition."
R9, what do you have against Whitney? She did more movies than Michael Jackson, who was in the In Memoriam segment after he died
Whitney is a good guess. She should be included for her movies and soundtrack contributions..
[quote] what do you have against Whitney?
I would be against having her in the final spot, which is reserved for whomever is considered by the Academy to be the most significant death of the year in the film community. Whitney can be in the final spot of the Grammy segment, but she was hardly much of an actress (i.e., her fame was from singing and that whole crack-is-whack stuff).
Don't count me out yet.
But seriously folks - to answer R12's question, the cutoff date is about 2 weeks before the Oscars.
So we've got 2+ months to go before the final decision is made.
As of now, I'd say Borgnine is the best bet, as a major winner and multiple nominee....
But if Livvy deHavilland kicks off from the cold winter they're currently having in Paris....
Did you see Olivia on 60 Minutes last month r21? She is not going anywhere yet.
Whitney made the cutoff for this year's ceremony. I assume they might have edited her in hurriedly, but she was in there.
The Voice of the Night
Donna Summer for her brilliant acting debut and farewell in 'Thank God It's Friday'
Probably Richard Zanuck, since he produced one of the 72nd AAs and got the Irving Thalberg Award.

I hope not Ernest Borgnine.
Better Celeste Holm.
"Whitney can be in the final spot of the Grammy segment, but she was hardly much of an actress (i.e., her fame was from singing and that whole crack-is-whack stuff)."
But Aaliyah was an acting genius, apparently *rolls eyes*
If Michael Jackson and Aaliyah get recognition for their sparse fim careers, Whitney should get recognition for hers
Three-time Oscar winner, EGOT and Pulitzer Prize winner, Marvin Hamlisch. In Memoriam segment to the tune of "The Way We Were." I'll even volunteer to sing it live. It'll be my return to the Oscar stage. How can the Academy resist?
It won't be me!
Whitney Houston sucked, I mean the worst caterwauling oversinging, the stupid videos and songs, ugh!
I still have my fingers crossed for a certain somebody.
Anne Hathaway's pubic hair. And her chances of winning an Oscar.
The nominees for the best corpse are...
Living or dying. I'm trying to decide which option will piss off Joan more.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
