So why did the Academy snub Brad Renfro by not including him in the memoriam? The Academy is pretty much tight as a drum.
A flack tells us a small group of people make extremely difficult choices but refused to say what criteria are used to make those decisions. She added we shouldn't waste our time cause no one would discuss it further.
Could it have something to do with the circumstances surrounding Renfro's death? It's uncomfortable to applaud when an actor dies from an overdose. Of course, exceptions must be made for huge stars who OD. Heath Ledger made the cut.
The red carpet wasn't the only thing that was sanitized last night.
