'In Memoriam': Halle Berry Honors Lena Horne at the OscarsThis year's "In Memoriam" feature provided a sober moment in the middle of 'The 83rd Annual Academy Awards' (Sun., 8:30PM ET on ABC) to remember those in the industry who passed away last year. As Celine Dion sang 'Smile', images of editors, directors, composers, designers, publicists and producers flashed on a screen.

Tony Curtis, Gloria Stuart, Leslie Nielsen, Lynn Redgrave, Pete Postlethwaite and Dennis Hopper were among the actors honored. Halle Berry then offered a special thanks to African-Americann entertainer Lena Horne. But where were Corey Haim, Peter Graves and Betty Garrett?

they left off Corin Redgrave yet showed his younger sister Lynn probably because she was nominated for an oscar twice as was Patricia Neal.

So many others missing...Kathryn Grayson, John Forsythe, Rue MacLanahan Pernell Roberts...I'm sure there even are more.

They left out Patricia Neal and also that woman who played Lavern's step mother on Laverine and Shirley. She was also in the movie On The Town.

eliminate non acting, film related people who have passed such as agents, etc, shorten the time spent on each individual, no more shots back to whomever might be singing during the presentation and there will be time to include all who have left us. This is poor planning on the part of the powers that be in charge of creating the memoriam. But then again, what else is new at the Oscars?

The best part of this whole show was Celine singing,now that's talent, That and the kids from P.S.22 on Staten Island closing a very boring and pompous show.They should take a look at the tony's,that show is so much more entertaining.The old movie clips,of,(bob Hope,or Lena Horne singing stormy weather ) were the highlights of the evening. When will the academy ever learn what the public wants to see.

Best part and worst part of in memoriam was the cut away to Celine Dion singing. For a second, my hopes were up that Celine had died mid-song; sadly, that wasn't the case.

They also forgot Ingrid Pitt. I know she wasn't a huge star or anything, but probably more well known as an actress than an agent or publicist.

They also forgot James MacArthur. Yes, he starred on the tv show "Hawaii 5-0", but he got his career start in Disney movies, most notibly: "Swiss Family Robinson".
