I saw someone say there were 110 names, but the later stills were just of names, sometimes three to a still. There were a total of 158 names. Here they are:

Do you really think so? It would a huge surprise to me if they would omit Resnais.

He wasn't among the nearly 200 referenced on Oscar.com so yes, they'll save Resnais for next year but whether he makes the "top 40" who get placed in the segment remains to be seen.

I'm surprised they got Harold Ramis in. Will they save Alain Resnais for next year?

Kaufman may have been the better critic, but Ebert was part of the Oscars for a time, taking part in red carpet interviews and of course publicizing the Oscars for many years on TV and in print.

I thought it was classy that they mentioned Sarah Jones, the camera assistant who was killed on the job on February 20th in the blurb for the Oscar.com In Memoriam at the end of the segment. Of those included in the presentation segment I was most happy to see Carmen Zapata singled out. She was a wonderful actress, but was better known in the Hollywood community for her humanitarian work which was probably what got her mentioned over several better known names.

This way they can cut the mic and you won't hear the applause.


I guess. I just remember the other times they had live singing over the montage, people mostly kept quiet because it would be rude to clap while someone is performing. It was not a big deal, I just found it odd to have the lovely montage and then have Bette sing after.

Oscar.com has 111 pages of people in the In Memoriam gallery - 77 pages with pictures, 34 more with three names each and no photos, that's 179 people altogether.

Glad they cut off the sound from the audience so we didn't hear applause for some and not others. Also liked how big names were interspersed with smaller ones.
