Oscars 2020: Luke Perry left out of In Memoriam segment

Actor starred in nominated film Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

Oscars 2020: round up of the night's events

Luke Perry was left out of the In Memoriam segment at this year’s Oscars, leading many fans to express their outrage on social media.

Every year, the segment remembers the Hollywood figures who have died over the past 12 months.

The former Riverdale and 90210 actor died at the age of 52 in March 2019 after suffering a stroke.

Oscars viewers and fans of Perry have expressed their disappointment after his name was missed out in the presentation, which was shown during Billie Eilish’s performance of “Yesterday” by The Beatles.

One viewer wrote on Twitter: “Shame on the academy for not including Luke Perry in the ‘in memoriam’ tribute. Seeing as ‘once upon a time in hollywood’ was the last film he made before he passed AND it was up for best picture, I have no words other than I’m disappointed.”

“Kind of a big goof to leave Luke Perry out of the Oscars ‘In Memoriam’ portion of the show, especially considering he had a role in Once Upon A Time In Hollywood,” tweeted another.

People also noticed the absence of horror star Sid Haig and Descendants actor Cameron Boyce.

South Korean black comedy Parasite was the evening's biggest winner, making history by becoming the first ever foreign language film to win Best Picture.
