Anne Heche, Tom Sizemore and Lisa Marie Presley among stars left out of Oscars In Memoriam

Fans have noticed a whole host of missing famous faces from the Oscars In Memoriam segment.

The annual tribute to those from the industry who had died over the past year was a moving one with John Travolta introducing the segment, which started with Australian actress Olivia Newton-John.

But as Lenny Kravitz sang Calling All Angels, there were some glaring omissions from the people shown on screen, including Anne Heche, Tom Sizemore, Leslie Jordan and Lisa Marie Presley.

Charlbi Dean, from Triangle of Sadness, which was up for the Best Picture Oscar was also absent.

The 32-year-old’s sudden death in August 2022 – caused by the bacterial infection sepsis, which was related to the removal of her spleen – made headlines last year.

Dean along with Heche, Sizemore and Jordan were all featured on the Oscars website’s In Memoriam page however.

Following the stirring performance, fans were told to check online for more names of those lost by scanning a QR code on screen.

Heche also died last August, aged 53, after a car crash in Los Angeles, while 67-year-old Jordan died in October from a sudden cardiac arrest while driving.

Sizemore, who famously starred in 1998’s Saving Private Ryan, died of a brain aneurysm earlier this month, aged 61.

Goodfellas star Paul Sorvino, who died at age 83 in July, was also missing from the broadcast but featured online.

Presley, the daughter of Elvis and Priscilla Presley who died in January just days after the Golden Globes, did not feature online either.

Despite her involvement with the Baz Luhrmann biopic about her father, the singer was not a producer on the film and hasn’t starred in any movies herself.

Jennifer Aniston’s dad and longtime soap star John Aniston was also missing from the TV package and online tributes.

The In Memoriam piece did feature other lost TV stars including another of Travolta’s co-stars Kirstie Alley and journalist Barbara Walters.
