Bob Saget is snubbed in Academy Awards memorial montage…fans take to Twitter to express discontent

Bob Saget is snubbed during Academy Awards In Memoriam two months after his death… and fans take to Twitter to express their discontent

Bob Saget’s fans took to Twitter after the 94th Academy Awards to express their discontent for the star being left out of the show’s memorial montage.

The show honored show business greats who passed away in the past year, but they left out the Full House star, who died in January at age 65.

One disappointed fan took to Twitter to tweet, ‘Cancel the #oscars for not mentioning Bob Saget in the Memoriam.’

The Monkees’ Michael Nesmith, Norm Macdonald, Sex and the City star Willie Garson, Mary Tyler Moore Show star Ed Asner and Robert Downey Jr’s actor-director father Robert Downey Sr were also left out.

Saget’s career was primarily based in TV, but the star directed the comedy Dirty Work and also the satirical documentary Farce of the Penguins.

One disgruntled viewer wrote online, ‘How do you [forget] Bob Saget in the Memorium…smh #Oscars.’

And another noted, ‘Shame on you @TheAcademy for not recognizing @bobsaget in the #oscarsinmemoriam.’

Saget isn’t the only deceased figure who was left out of the annual honor – Meat Loaf was also missing.

In the past, the Academy has also gypped Naya Rivera, Luke Perry, and Verne Troyer, making the yearly tribute a regular controversy.

Saget was found dead in his hotel room at the Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes on January 9.

A funeral was held for the late comedian on January 14, and many of his former costars and friends attended the event.

The performer was subsequently laid to rest at the Mount Sinai Memorial Park Cemetery in Los Angeles.

An autopsy report was later released, and it was determined that Saget likely suffered blunt force trauma after slipping and hitting his head in his hotel room.
