Naya Rivera, Jessica Walter, & More Left Out of Oscars 2021 In Memoriam Tribute

Several stars were noticeably left out of the In Memoriam segment at the 2021 Academy Awards.

During the ceremony, which aired on Sunday (April 25), the Oscars took a moment to remember those we have lost this year.

The In Memoriam segment honored late stars like Chadwick Boseman, Kelly Preston, and Christopher Plummer.

However, fans did notice that several important figures had been left out of the segment.

Those left out of the In Memoriam included Naya Rivera, Jessica Walter, and Adam Schlesinger.

While she was best known for her role in Glee, Naya did appear in several movies, such as the 2017 movie Mad Families.

Jessica, who starred in the TV series Arrested Development, also appeared in several films, including the 1971 movie Play Misty for Me, which earned her a Golden Globe nomination.

Adam was the frontman for The Fountains of Wayne and was nominated at the 1997 Oscars for Best Original Song for “That Thing You Do!”

This isn’t the first awards show Naya has been left out of the In Memoriam tribute. Back in March, fans were outraged when the 2021 Grammys didn’t include her in the tribute.

Naya Rivera‘s dad George is not happy with Ryan Murphy.

Just days after Naya‘s tragic passing last July, the Glee creator spoke out about his intent to create a college fund for her son, Josey Dorsey.

However, according to George, it hasn’t happened.

Naya‘s father took to Twitter and claimed that Ryan has been full of “Broken Promises,” “fake outrage” and “hollow gestures.”

He also claimed that there had been no phone calls despite Ryan saying that he had spoken to her family following her death.

“Everyone needs to know what Ryan Murphy really did … or didn’t do !!! I’m about to blow up this story …. and make sure he’s knows that I know,” George wrote.

He added in a reply to a fan, saying that “When you are part of the Hollywood elite, some people treat others as they are ‘less than’ …. vocalize a good game, but it’s as shallow as the sets on stage , that they create.”

After George‘s tweets came, Ryan cleared the air on his own Twitter account and claimed that talks about a college fund for Josey are still in the works.
