The Oscars has been criticised over notable omissions in its in memoriam segment. 
Oscars 2020 In Memoriam Segment Criticised Over Notable Omissions
Viewers of Sunday night’s ceremony noticed late Beverly Hills, 90210 star Luke Perry was among those missing from the video montage shown on the big screens at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. 
The actor, who was best known for his role as Dylan McKay in the 90s US teen drama, died last year at the age of 52, after suffering a stroke. Luke’s absence from the segment was all the more notable given he had a role in Once Upon A Time... In Hollywood, which was nominated for Best Picture. 
Descendants and Grown Ups star Cameron Boyce, who died last July at the age of 20 due to epilepsy, was also not recognised.Other notable stars who hadn’t been included in the segment included horror actor Sid Haig, who died in September at the age of 80, Oscar-nominated actor Michael J Pollard, who died in November aged 80, and The Carol Burnett Show star Tim Conway, who died last May aged 85.
The omissions were quickly noted by social media users...Cameron Boyce and Luke Perry DESERVES BETTER!! pic.twitter.com/ju6Rim5wCW— Sabrina D (@JoBrosButterfly) February 10, 2020The fact that The Academy failed to include Luke Perry AND Cameron Boyce in their tribute is something I still haven’t been able to wrap my head around #Oscarspic.twitter.com/QvaH36IXyH— sara⛄️❄️ (@sarareneexo) February 10, 2020Oof! Not including Cameron Boyce and Luke Perry was a HUGE mistake academy! #Oscarspic.twitter.com/16lmz4lcUH— E-Mack 🧢 (@emacdaddy1234) February 10, 2020They also left out Cameron Boyce. His grandmother JoAnn Boyce is a civil rights pioneer & one of the #Clinton12 who were the first to go to an all white school in TN after Brown vs BOE. Luke Perry was in one of the Oscar nom films. They royally f'ed up leaving them all out. pic.twitter.com/Jf2fMcQcWt— Charlene Worley (@cworley2007) February 10, 2020Did the academy really leave out Luke Perry(he was literally in one of the movies nominated for best picture) and Cameron Boyce? Like do y’all realize how bad you messed up. @TheAcademy 🤔— mikayla|taylor+harry stan (@mikaylaanncar) February 10, 2020I also wished Sid Haig was mentioned in the memorial. He's a very beloved actor to horror fans, and he's been acting since the 1960s. Same thing with Luke Perry and Cameron Boyce. Not cool guys.— Max Robards (@max_robrds) February 10, 2020Not mentioning Luke Perry and Cameron Boyce during the memoriam at the #Oscars was a slap in the face. Hello?!!— Dusty Stanfill (@dusty_stanfill) February 10, 2020Cameron Boyce got his start playing Adam Sandler's son in the Grown-Ups movie, Luke Perry was in several theatrical releases including Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, they both qualified, Cameron Boyce's inclusion would have shown the industry sometimes loses talent too soon— Kathy Byrne (@kab_fair) February 10, 2020how could they even forget three VERY popular people not only the LEGEND Sid Haig, but Luke Perry and Cameron Boyce I'm mad enough about Sid https://t.co/TisRhhCBjN— SØX カム @ A BODY HAS BEEN DISCOVERED (@SeasonalGent) February 10, 2020Billie Eilish accompanied the in memoriam segment with a performance of the Beatles’ 1965 hit, Yesterday.
She was joined by her brother, Finneas O’Connell, on piano as images of Kobe Bryant, Kirk Douglas and other stars appeared on screens above them.
The Academy confirmed on Twitter last month that Billie would appear at the Oscars for a “special performance,” but kept specifics under wraps.
Some fans assumed that she would use the occasion to unveil her much-anticipated theme song for the forthcoming James Bond film, No Time to Die, but that didn’t happen.  
Billie herself called Yesterday a song she’d “always loved” in an Instagram story shortly before the ceremony. MORE OSCARS: All The Big Moments You Might Have Missed From This Year's Oscars Why Parasite Winning Best Picture Is A Huge Leap Forward For The Oscars 7 Big Firsts From This Year's Oscars
