IMDB and Hollywood getting on my nerves
IMDB is the premier movie database. WTF is up with them? Gale Storm’s death isn’t prominent in the news headlines. I found a piece posted below Jeff Goldblum’s faux death. Jeff Goldblum isn’t even dead but he’s a headline over dead singer and 1950s TV star Gale Storm.
IMDB doesn’t honor dead stars from the past. It gave Betty Hutton a tiny blurb as big as the period at the end of this sentence. It did the same with Don Ho and first Bond, Barry Nelson. Absolutely no respect for the elderly and the pioneers.
I’m not a Jennifer Aniston fan but if we never hear from her in the next 40 years, then drops dead…well she’ll deserve a nice mention. She was famous in the 90s.
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences pulls this crap too like leaving out the likes of Dorothy McGuire, Brad Renfro, Ann Savage, and Mel Ferrer from it’s In Memoriam. And get this classic cinephiles, it left out f*@king ANITA PAGE in 2009!!!!! How do you f*@king leave out Anita Page? A BIG star from the silent era and early talkies who was in the 1930 Academy Award’s Best Picture, The Broadway Melody (1929).
I’m so so upset right now.
I heard the reason Brad Renfro was ignored in the In Memoriam is because he wasn’t a member of the Academy.
Actually I’m not 100% sure it was Renfro, but there was a recently deceased person who was ignored in the Oscar tributes, and I read the reason for it was because the person wasn’t an Academy member.
After Michael Jackson died, I started wondering if he’ll be included in the In Memoriam. One of his songs got an Oscar nomination (“Ben” in 1972), so maybe they won’t ignore him.
