Oscars 2022: Lata Mangeshkar And Dilip Kumar Don’t Feature ‘In Memoriam’ Segment, Fans Say ‘Incredibly Insensitive’ – Check Tweets
Lata Mangeshkar and Dilip Kumar were left out from the in-memorial section of the Oscars 2022. Fans expressed their disappointment on Twitter.
Oscar 2022: No Oscar ceremony is comprehensive without the ‘In Memoriam’ segment, in which the Academy honors all of the cinema personalities who have passed away around the world. The majority of the celebrities honored were from Hollywood, although French actor Jean-Paul Belmondo was also honored. Melody queen Lata Mangeshkar and cinema veteran Dilip Kumar would have been a dream come true for Indian Twitter. The Academy also left out Full House star and comedian Bob Saget, who died in January at the age of 65.
At the 94th Academy Awards, Lata Mangeshkar and Dilip Kumar were absent from the ‘In Memoriam’ portion. The omission of two of Indian cinema’s heavyweights from the 2022 Oscars event was noticeable, notably after the renowned personalities were honoured by the British Academy Film and Television Awards (BAFTA) earlier this month.

Sometimes, I think, colonialism still lives on..(sic)” While another user wrote, “This is incredibly insensitive of #Oscars2022 management. If the #Oscars are a celebration of #global and not #western or #Hollywood cinema, ignoring #DilipKumar n #LataMangeshkar is deplorable, unforgiveable.

I was actually expecting #LataMangeshkar to be mentioned in the #Oscars In Memoriam. But well…

Why was the Indian Nightingale @mangeshkarlata omitted from #Oscars tribute. She is a legend!
Bizzare and inexcusable!….#LataMangeshkar

So #Oscars didn’t have time to pay tribute to Indian legends #LataMangeshkar & #DilipKumar. Not that it should matter to us but they rightfully deserve a slap. Consider #WillSmith charging at #Oscar2022 😏

Lata Mangeshkar was dubbed the ‘Nightingale of India,’ and she was one of the most varied singers in Indian cinema. Some of her famous tracks include Lag Jaa Gale, Ajeeb Dastan Hai Yeh, Tere Liye among others. Dilip Kumar, on the other hand, was known by Tragedy King because of depressing but award-winning performances. Some of his blockbusters include Ram Aur Shyam, Kranti and Mughal-e-Azam.
