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.

Lata Mangeshkar’s fans were outraged that she was not included in the memorial. They quickly took to Twitter to express their disappointment. One of the uses wrote, “The amazing world-record setting #LataMangeshkar (who passed away from Covid) sang more songs for more movies than shown in all Oscars combined. Yet, the #Oscars2022 #Inmemoriam did not see it fit to honor her even with a mention. 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.
