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.
