Drake took to Instagram to remember Redway, posting two different tributes.

And the best the Academy can do is to say they put her on their website gallery?
Well, Melissa Rivers has something to say about the snub.
The Fashion Police producer took to her late mother's Facebook page Monday night, writing:
Joan is probably turning in her grave!
As everyone who follows entertainment knows, The Oscars were presented on Sunday!
After the glaring misdeed, people on Twitter simply weren't having it, and The Academy has already issued a statement, saying:
May the memory of Joan Rivers forever be in our hearts!
However, right before the ceremony during E!'s red carpet coverage, daughter Melissa Rivers presented a video paying homage to her mother's great work interviewing stars.
The Fashion Police producer said:
Joan Rivers was noticeably missing from the Oscars In Memoriam 2015 segment.
The comedienne — who passed away last September — was not only known for her fashion commentary, but she starred in over 20 films (including voicework in Spaceballs and Shrek 2), including with her award-winning documentary, A Piece of Work.
But The Academy overlooked Joan in their segment during the actual awards telecast. Joan's celebrity fans were outraged. Check out their responses (below).
Whether it's in words or on video, the memory of Joan Rivers will go on forever.
The late comedian's daughter, Melissa Rivers, recently wrote a tribute book to Joan and we can't imagine anyone else more perfect than the woman who knew her the best.
The Book of Joan: Tales of Mirth, Mischief, and Manipulation recalls observations, thoughts from the funny woman, and even HIGHlarious stories from Melissa's childhood!
Miz Rivers spoke out about the soon-to-debut pages, saying:
During the Grammys on Sunday, February 8th, there was one pretty huge snub during the In Memoriam segment…
So, what was the deal? Why would they leave her out!
Well, according to the show's producer Ken Ehrlich, they cut her out of the remembrance because of the time limits imposed on the show!
However, don't get TOO angry just yet, his reasoning is PRETTY valid.
It was SUCH an intense night at the Grammys!
Sam Smith practically walked away with all of the Grammys he was nominated for — maybe they should've named this year's show Sam Smith's Grammys and everyone else who was nominated.
Totally kidding, but the Stay With Me singer is now up there with all of the greatest artists who took home all of the awards!
Congrats to all of the winners and those who were nominated!
Ch-ch-check out the complete winners list from the Grammys (below)!!
