The 2017 Emmys didn't get everything right… specifically, who was and wasn't recognized during the ceremony's in memoriam segment.

On Sunday night, Hamilton star Christopher Jackson belted out Stevie Wonder's As while a video played honoring the fallen faces of television — but several noteworthy stars were left out of the tribute, including Dick Gregory, Charlie Murphy, Harry Dean Stanton, and Frank Vincent.

All four actors who died this year had performed in TV shows throughout their careers. Gregory, a comedian and civil rights activist, had starred in Reno 911! and Wonder Showzen, while Murphy, the brother of Eddie Murphy, had starred in Chappelle's Show, POWER, and others.

Stanton (who passed away on Friday at 91) played a number of TV roles, most recently in Twin Peaks: The Return and Getting On, and Vincent appeared in several shows like The Sopranos and Law & Order: SVU.

After the show, Twitter users paid their own tributes to those left out of the segment, including Common:

On Friday the world lost a real legend and one of the classic movie dads.

TMZ is reporting that Harry Dean Stanton passed away peacefully at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles at the age of 91.

Stanton was known as a "that guy" throughout his six decade film career; he appeared prominently in films like Alien, Repo Man, Escape From New York, The Godfather Part II, Cool Hand Luke, and many more.

More recently he could be seen in HBO's Big Love and in the Showtime revival of Twin Peaks.

But for many he was best known as Andie's hard-luck but loving dad Jack in the '80s classic Pretty In Pink. Ironically Stanton was a lifelong bachelor.

Harry was also the star of an upcoming film called Lucky, out September 29, for which he was already getting rave reviews. See the moving trailer for his final film (below):
