Fans React After ‘Triangle Of Sadness’ Tribute Walked Out Of Oscars

Audiences were left shocked on Sunday after the Oscars’ “In Memoriam” tribute failed to acknowledge the deaths of some of Hollywood’s most memorable names and recognizable faces.

Fans quickly took to Twitter to express their disappointment that Charlbi Dean, a star of the best picture nominee “Triangle of Sadness,” was left out of the segment.

The South African actress and model died suddenly in August of bacterial sepsis, a complication from a 2009 car wreck that led to the removal of her spleen. Dean was 32 and recently engaged.

Although the Oscar telecast omitted Dean, he was featured on the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ “In Memoriam” website.

HuffPost did not immediately reach representatives for Dean or the academy for comment.

Dean’s “Triangle of Sorrows” co-star Dolly de Leon paid tribute to the late star in a pointed Instagram — seemingly aimed at skipping the academy — on Monday.

“IN MEMORIAM Charlbi Dean February 5, 1990-August 29, 2022,” she wrote alongside a photo of Dean.

There were other notable omissions from the “In Memoriam” section. Viewers noticed that Anne Heche, Leslie Jordan, Tony Sirico, Tom Sizemore and “Goodfellas” actor Paul Sorvino were among those also left out of the live show.

Sorvino’s daughter, Oscar winner Mira Sorvino, criticized the academy for omitting her father.

“I remember dad on this Oscar night…” she he wrote on Twitter. “It’s incredibly confusing that my beloved father and so many other amazing brilliant actors who have left have been left out. The Oscars forgot about Paul Sorvino, but the rest of us never will!!”
