Abe Vigoda’s Daughter Upset That He Was Left Out Of Oscars In Memoriam


According to TMZ, Abe Vigoda’s family wants an apology from the Academy after he was left out of the In Memoriam segment during the Oscars. His daughter Carol said: “The Oscars dismayed many and cheated Abe Vigoda by not paying tribute to the immense professional energies and talents that he brought to the industry. Let’s not forget the personal and family sacrifices that were willing made to achieve that essential devotion. The Oscars fell short in many ways and as my father Abe Vigoda said the Oscars have earned, ‘one demerit.’” She doesn’t believe that her father was left out due top the time of his death (January 26), because both Alan Rickman and David Bowie were included. She added there’s a “hole in my heart that needs to be filled.”
