What you have illustrated to me is precisely why she doesn't warrant attention in a film remembrance.  With exactly one good movie on that list, there is NO REASON to single her out.  In recent years, unlike in the past, the Oscars have decided to celebrate behind-the-scenes folks who average movie goers know nothing about.  That is their decision.  

To include an actor because she appeared in one good movie is absurd, especially when the nomination was a stretch (IMO).

It’s Carol.

Channing.

Who cares if you don’t like her in Millie she was NOMINATED FOR AN OSCAR.

This is wrong that they did not include her.

Miss Channing left us in 2019. She will probably be included next year. Take a deep breath.

^But Albert Finney passed away earlier this month, yet he was included on the telecast.

^ really? Google is your friend. But to put it in a musical context, he played Daddy Warbucks  in the original Anniefilm.

It is a complete travesty that Ms. Channing was not included in the telecast. End of story.

If you watch the classic sixties film, Tom Jones, and Murder on the Orient Express, Scrooge, Big Fish, Erin Brockavitch, Skyfall and Annie, and countless more films and television shows, plus Broadway, that's Albert Finney.

By using Google (and of course letting them steal all of my information --eye roll), others are talking about the Carol Channing omission.

https://ew.com/oscars/2019/02/24/oscars-2019-in-memoriam-snubs/

Sondra Locke, also an Oscar nominee was also omitted.   

I don't agree about Stanley Donen, who only passed away on Tuesday.   He can easily be placed ( and should be) in next year's segment.

I am incensed!

But then, it is reflective of the way the Academy Awards are nowadays - and why I didn't watch them.

yes yes Ms. Channing got left out , but so did STANLEY DONEN, who made movie musicals sing and dance...

and i loved the music the LA PHIL played during the INMEMORIEM sequence...anybody know what it was?

I do I do!...it was the lovely sequence of music from the first SUPERMAN movie...after Clark Kent's father passes...the most beautiful music from that grand super hero movie, written by John Williams...who else knew that?

Many people who were nominated for an Oscar were not included in the memorial tribute; and they had lots more MOVIE credits than Channing.  Channing was never a movie presence; she was only successful in Millie because she was playing an over the top person with a big hearts.e., herself.

This post to me is just as silly as the Kennedy Center award thread and the rename the St James thread.  I loved Channing when I saw her in HD multiple times.  I liked her in Lorelei...didn't love her because the show was such a letdown; liked her in Three in a Garden (or whatever it was called), but it was a massive flop because it was so lousy.  

Her portfolio is just not that big to justify all of the things people want done to honor her.  She played Dolly for 4 - 5,000 performances; give her a plaque somewhere in the St. James and move on.

Re Stanley Donen, now there was a MOVIE career.  He directed On the Town, Royal Wedding, Singing in the Rain, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, Funny Face, The Pajama Game, Damn Yankees, Charade, Two For The Road, Bedazzled, and a number of other movies which were hits, if not terrific movies', e.g., Indiscreet, The Grass is Greener.  Now that is a movie career warranting inclusion.  In his case, I am guessing that timing was the issue.  Nevertheless...

No, she won't.  Albert Finney got the last slot, and he dies well after she did.

Plus, she was in a lot more movies than Channing, many of which were big hits (admittedly most because of her relationship with Clint Eastwood).

Carol and Stanley both died this year not last year and still have a chance to appear next year.  As for Albert Finney, he was a major film star in his day, so an exception was made.  If you want to be angry about something, what about Mary Carlisle?

The In Memoriam section of the Oscars is not a moment to acknowledge celebrities who’ve passed away.  It is a moment for those gathered at the ceremony to acknowledge and honor their colleagues who made their careers in the film industry.  Considering her numerous stage and tv appearances, it would be appropriate to memorialize Carol Channing on either the Emmys and/or the Tonys.  However, 8 films over a 70-plus year career does not warrant being honored by the Oscars.  It’s not about how famous you were.  It’s about the depth of your contribution to the film industry.

Not such a stretch given that I'd never heard of half the actors they DID include. I think former Oscar winners and nominees should be included.
