    Joan Rivers and Elaine Stritch Snubbed During Oscars In Memoriam Segment

    About every year certain dearly departed talent are left out of the Oscars' sadly jam-packed in memoriam segment--and multi-hyphenate stars Joan Rivers and Elaine Stritch were the ones whom Twitter seized upon immediately after Sunday's tribute.

    Neither late entertainer was particularly known for a movie career, but both appeared on the big screen and certainly did more than enough in their fans' eyes to merit mentions.

    Rivers appeared in a number of films including John Waters’ "Serial Mom," "The Swimmer," and "The Muppets Take Manhattan." Stritch appeared in "Monster In Law," Woody Allen's "September," "Out to Sea," "The Spiral Staircase" and "The Perfect Furlough."

    At the Academy Awards Rivers was best remembered for her red-carpet coverage alongside her daughter Melissa Rivers.
