Luke Perry among those not included in Oscar's 'In Memoriam' reel

The 2020 Oscars' "In Memoriam" segment paid tribute to dozens of Hollywood legends who died over the past year. But a few notable names did not appear in the segment, sparking outrage on social media.

Former Disney Channel star Cameron Boyce, comedian Tim Conway and former Beverly Hills 90210 star Luke Perry were among those not included in the Academy Awards' "In Memoriam" reel.

Perry's absence came despite a brief appearance in Once Upon a Time...In Hollywood — which was nominated for Best Picture.

Perry died on March 4, 2019, days after suffering a massive stroke.

Boyce, who rose to fame on the Disney Channel TV show Jessie, also appeared in the film Grown Ups 2. He died on July 6, 2019, after his family says he suffered an epileptic seizure.

Tim Conway was a staple on sitcoms for over 50 years. He died on May 14 at the age of 85.

All three men appeared in the Emmy Awards "In Memoriam" reel last September.

The Oscar's "In Memoriam" reel honored dozens of Hollywood legends that have died over the past year, including former basketball star and Oscar-winning filmmaker Kobe Bryant, Oscar-winning actor Kirk Douglas and Oscar-nominated director John Singleton. The reel also included a performance by pop star Billie Eilish. Watch the "In Memoriam" reel below.
