Oscars Snub Andy Griffith One Good Cracker

Bookended by the ever-classy George Clooney and the ever-brassy Barbra Stresiand, the Oscar In Memoriam segment paid tribute to some of the Hollywood greats who died in the past year, including Ernest Borgnine, Michael Clarke Duncan, Jack Klugman, Ray Bradbury, and Charles Durning.

However, as is usually the case, there were some notable people who were omitted from the montage.

Arguably the most notable omission this year was Andy Griffith, who rose to prominence as the star of Elia Kazan’s “A Face in the Crowd” and went on to headline the situational comedy “The Andy Griffith Show” (1960-1968) and the popular legal drama “Matlock” (1986-1985).

Hollywood snubs Southern sheriff. Thats one good cracker.
