Reviews the following date pointed out that several notable stars who passed were not included in the tribute. The reasons these names were not included is anyone's guess.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has been criticized in the past for leaving out Donna Summer and Lupe Ontiveros (2013), Jeff Conaway (2012), Corey Haim and actress Betty Garrett (2011), Farrah Fawcett (2010), George Carlin (2009) and Brad Renfro (2008).
Take a look at those who didn't make the video.
