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.

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!
As we reported on Sunday, many fans were extremely shocked that the Oscars didn't include the comedian during the "In Memoriam" segment of the show.

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.

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.
Earlier in the evening, Joan's daughter and Fashion Police producer Melissa Rivers paid tribute to Joan Sunday in a special video on E!.
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!

During the Grammys on Sunday, February 8th, there was one pretty huge snub during the In Memoriam segment…
Joan Rivers! And she'd JUST won a Grammy that night for Best Spoken Word Album!
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)!!

A more deserving winner couldn't have been selected!
Joan Rivers may have passed away last year, but she's still winning awards.
The comedienne won the Grammy for Best Spoken Word Album for Diary of a Mad Diva!
Her twelfth book's recording beat out James Franco's Actors Anonymous, Jimmy Carter's A Call to Action, John Waters' Carsick: John Waters Hitchhikes Across America, Elizabeth Warren's A Fighting Chance, and Gloria Gaynor's We Will Survive: True Stories of Encouragement, Inspiration and the Power of Song.
Many are missing Joan and her sharp sense of humor, so many should also be very pleased for the funny lady to be honored one more time.
