Like every year, the In Memoriam section of the Oscars paid tribute to filmmakers and artists who left the world in 2020. And unsurprisingly for a year that won so many, the list was long.
Among the notable deceased personalities who got a nod were Ian Holm, Sean Connery Max von Sydow, Christopher Plummer, Chadwick Boseman and our own Bhanu Athaiya and Irrfan Khan.
Bhanu Athaiya was India’s first Oscar winner, winning the best costume trophy for the 1982 film Gandhi. Irrfan Khan was an international actor who died after a long battle with cancer on April 29. Angela Bassett presented In Memoriam with a grim reflection on the past year.
Cicely Tyson, Cloris Leachman, Yaphet Kotto, Joel Schumacher, Bertrand Tavernier, Jean-Claude Carrière, Olivia de Havilland, Paula Kelly, George Seagal, are among the other notable deceased.
Rishi Kapoor and Sushant Singh Rajput were absent from the list, and their fans on social media have commented on their absence. However, they were recalled on the Oscars website in a special In Memoriam section.
Ignoring this, their fans tweeted, “Rishi kapoor was literally one of the greatest actors of the last decades and the death of sushant singh rajputs literally caused quite a stir in India.
Another tweeted: “Rishi Kapoor deserved for me in the ‘In Memoriam’ section of #Oscars.”
Nomadland won the most trophies at the 2021 Oscars: Best Picture, Best Director and Best Actress. Anthony Hopkins was voted best actor for The Father.
