See Who Made The Montage & Who Got Snubbed During The 2016 Oscars In Memoriam Segment — Plus Dave Grohl's Beautiful Performance

Filed under: R.I.P.Sad SadOscars

While the Oscars were filled with hilarious jokes and goofy skits, the ceremony got serious when it came time to remember the stars we lost over the past year.

During the In Memoriam segment, the Academy celebrated the lives of filmmakers, actors, and other notable names in Hollywood who passed away since the 2015 awards show.

The montage remembered stars like David Bowie, Alan Rickman, and Leonard Nimoy, while Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl sang a beautiful rendition of Paul McCartney's Blackbird.

Unfortunately, it appears as though The Godfather alum Abe Vigoda and Rocky actor Tony Burton were both left out of the segment.

Take a look (above).

Filed under: R.I.P.Sad SadBobbi Kristina

All of the stars we've lost in 2015.

Saying goodbye is never easy, and 2015 has been no exception thus far.

From the depths of space where no man has gone before to the anchor's desk at ESPN, we've already lost a lot of celebrities this year.

So as summer comes to an end, we thought we'd take some time to say a proper goodbye to the stars who were taken from us far too early.

Joan is probably turning in her grave!

As everyone who follows entertainment knows, The Oscars were presented on Sunday!

And while people like Neil Patrick Harris, Anna Kendrick, and Eddie Redmayne had amazing nights, one funny lady in particular didn't have the best time.

That's because during the award show's annual 'In Memoriam' segment, Joan Rivers was suspiciously snubbed from being honored.

Meryl Streep Presents In Memoriam At The Oscars With A Moving Performance By Jennifer Hudson

Filed under: R.I.P.Meryl StreepRobin WilliamsOscars

The In Memoriam segment of the Oscars is always heartbreaking.

This year, Meryl Streep opened up the sad tradition with a moving speech — we especially appreciated the poignant quote she chose by the prolific author, Joan Didion.

Obviously in 2015 we lost some greats, like Robin Williams, Mickey Rooney, and Lauren Bacall. While it's hard to know so many artistic talents are no longer with us, it's comforting to see them honored in such a special way.

To top off the emotional segment, Jennifer Hudson utilized her amazing pipes to pay tribute to those we've lost with I Can't Let Go.

Our hearts go out to the families and friends of the stars we lost in 2015.
