Oscar "In Memoriam" Recap

By Lauren Wiseman

As an obituary writer, I can't help but look forward to the "In Memoriam" bit of the Oscars. It's a chance to remember which big stars were featured in our pages here at the Post and who we wrote about in great detail.

So as an ode to Oscar night and some of Hollywood's biggest stars who died in 2010, here are just a few of the actors, actresses, and filmmakers who Hollywood saluted tonight and the links to their obituaries, just in case you haven't had the chance to read them yet.

Lena Horne
Dennis Hopper
Lynn Redgrave
Tony Curtis
Leslie Nielsen
Jill Clayburgh
Claude Chabrol
Arthur Penn

Hope you enjoyed the show!

One of my favorite parts of the show. Though for years I ahve referred to it as the Mourner's Kaddish.

If memory serves me the Academy forgot Farrah Fawcett last year. Did they remember Joe Mantell, a featured actor who played Angie in "Marty" and said "What do you want to do tonight Marty?", and later as operative Walsh in Chinatown said "Forgett it Jake, it's Chinatown"? Were they honored last year?

I was surprised not to see one of the most
famous celebrities of his day not included in the tribute-Eddie Fisher,
who appeared in four films.
