Several stars were left out of the Oscars "In Memoriam" segment Sunday night which honored the actors, producers, writers and artists lost in the previous year.

The most notable snubs were actors Luke Perry, who starred in the television series "Beverly Hills, 90210" and was in the Oscar-winning film "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood," and Cameron Boyce, who starred in Disney's "Descendents." Perry died last year at age 52 following a stroke and Boyce died of epilepsy at age 20.

Fans were quick to notice the stars were left out of the roughly four-minute montage.




Other talents who were forgotten Sunday night were Michael J. Pollard, who was nominated for an Oscar in 1967 for his role in "Bonnie and Clyde," horror movie icon Sid Haig, comedian Tim Conway and Jan-Michael Vincent from the television series "Airwolf."

The broadcast segment featured Billie Eilish singing "Yesterday," by The Beatles.

All of the stars were honored in the Academy's online "In Memoriam" page.
