The 2015 Oscars, like every year, had its great moments. Powerful acceptance speeches from Patricia Arquette, Common and John Legend's touching musical renditions, with the latter's performance garnering a standing ovation. It was the moments where the show missed the mark, however, that got everyone talking. One of those moments became one of the most talked-about aspects of the show – the exclusion of the late Joan Rivers from the In Memoriam segment.

Rivers' death in 2014 sent shockwaves throughout Hollywood and the comedy world in particular, and the Oscars snub left many fans angry and upset.

Rivers wasn't the only actress not included in the segment. Actor Taylor Negron, ex-SNL cast member Jan Hooks, director Harold Ramis and actress Elaine Stritch were also ignored.
