Everyone on the construction site this morning was wondering why Brad Renfro wasn't included in the annual "In Memoriam" montage last night. Kevin (camo pants above) thinks it was probably because Brad's death was eclipsed by the death of Heath Ledger the following week. (Note to celebs: try to space out your deaths.)
So today Marky, the foremans son, told me the Academy released a statement about the forgotten Renfro. "It was really an editing decision because we can’t fit everyone in. It is simply not possible to include everyone in that segment."
Jerry, he's a welder, works the plasma cutter, Jerry pointed out that 50 notables were squeezed into the montage and so it does seem a bit odd there wasn't room for one more. Poor Renfro.
Not to meniton, Bobby Z. , he was working the crawler excavator this morning, Bobby was also quite miffed that Whoopi Goldberg was left out of a montage of Oscar hosts!
