Where Was Estelle Getty?

Did we miss it, or was the Golden girl was notably absent from the Oscar’s remembrance of those we lost?

      Did she do many movies? Almost all Ive seen of her work is on TV. Same with Ertha Kit.

      Don’t forget “Stop or My Mom Will Shoot”!!

      I’ve always wondered this, do they have to be a member of the academy to be listed? Seems like there is always someone they are leaving out.

      RIP – Estelle Getty

      With all due respect, she wasn’t a big movie star, much better known for tv work. still probably should have been there.

      Its not about being a big movie star though, they show many people that many have not even heard of, especially those that work behind the scenes.

      I believe one is listed only if they were an Academy member or Oscar nominee/winner

      Ken is correct; they must be a member of the Academy or have been nominated. Only a handful of film industry folks are invited to become members in a given year, as the Academy likes to keep a voting number easy to manage.
