Who will get the final, prestigious spot

in the next Academy Awards' "In Memoriam" segment?

by Anonymousreply 3712/12/2012

Elizabeth Taylor.

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...

Zsa Zsa.

Tony Scott

Lena Dunham

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

by Anonymousreply 1712/11/2012

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.

by Anonymousreply 2012/11/2012

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.

by Anonymousreply 2212/12/2012

Whitney made the cutoff for this year's ceremony. I assume they might have edited her in hurriedly, but she was in there.

Donna Summer for her brilliant acting debut and farewell in 'Thank God It's Friday'

by Anonymousreply 2412/12/2012

Hopefully, OP.

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!

by Anonymousreply 3212/12/2012

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.
