Gone but certainly not forgotten.
During Sunday's 94th Oscars, The Academy paid tribute to the artists and filmmakers who left their indelible mark on cinema before passing on, including Sidney Poitier, Betty White, Ivan Reitman, Stephen Sondheim and many more.
Jamie Lee Curtis, Bill Murray and Tyler Perry took the stage to speak throughout the segment, with Perry speaking on Poitier ("When he stood on that stage, he did more than shatter a barrier. He sparked a dream for all that followed."), Murray on Reitman ("He made some really good movies... Ivan, I love your work.") and Curtis on White: "She was a legend who brightened every room she walked into." (Curtis came out holding a puppy to acknowledge White's animal advocacy.)
Jill Scott concluded the moving remembrance. "Friends, family, peers, people, we all know there will be loss," she said. "Here is where we must honor the legacies, the moments that tickled us and reminded us of us. Here is where we celebrate the lights, where we say the names and where we clap our hands in gratitude."
Set to a medley performed by The Samples Choir , honors were also paid to filmmakers Jean-Marc Vallée and Lina Wertmüller, visual effects artists Robert Blalack and Douglas Trumbull, actor William Hurt, actress Sally Kellerman and Mexican icon Carmen Salinas. Watch the In Memoriam below.
