They were Luke Perry and Cameron Boyce. The "Riverdale" and "Descendants" actors, respectively seemed to have been left out of the 'In Memoriam' segment of The Oscars.

Hit Grammy winner Billie Eilish performed a haunting rendition of The Beatles' 'Yesterday,' while the slideshow began with Kobe Bryant, and went on to feature other actors like Doris Day, Rip Torn, and many Hollywood writers, animators, costume designers and more. The slideshow ended with Kirk Douglas. But no Cameron Boyce or Luke Perry. Fans were quick to take to social media to note some of the glaring omissions that The Academy seems to have missed, at least in the slideshow section of The Oscar Awards.

Luke Perry's Death

Luke Perry, of "Beverly Hills, 90210" fame, passed away on March 4, 2019. He was only 52 years old and had suffered a massive stroke. His recent projects included playing the character Archie's father on the hit show "Riverdale." One of his last filmed roles was for the movie "Once Upon A Time In Hollywood," which was up for ten different awards. The fact that he was omitted from the 'In Memoriam' section but was in a film that was up for various awards stunned fans.

Cameron Boyce's Death

Cameron Boyce, the fresh-faced Disney actor tragically lost his young life last year at the age of 20 to SUDEP (Sudden Unexpected Death In Epilepsy) on July 6. He had passed away in his sleep. His family did confirm that Boyce suffered from Epilepsy. The young star starred alongside Adam Sandler in "Grown Ups," in 2011. After that, his career took off, appearing on guest roles and eventually landing a full-time acting gig on Disney Channel's "Jessie." After the show ended, Boyce, along with other Disney stars went on to film 3 successful "Descendants" movies. Boyce passed away before the 3rd movie premiered.

It also seemed that it was a bit of a game of favoritism as well, as others were clapped for, and others there was just pure silence. However, the academy was rather quick to rush to social media to assure everyone that they did not snub anyone, as there was a whole list of "In Memoriam" online. You can view that list right here.

There Were Others

Perry and Boyce were not the only ones who were omitted from the 'In Memoriam' section. Horror icon Sid Haig passed away last year at the age of 80, after being hospitalized following a fall. Haig had suffered a lung infection while he was in the hospital and passed from complications of COPD and other illnesses. Finally, there was also Tim Conway, of "Carol Burnett Show" fame. It seems The Academy has upset quite a few people with their omissions of these actors.
