Josh Lucas Agrees -- Renfro Got Screwed!

2/26/2008 7:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ caught up with Josh Lucas Tuesday afternoon, and he agreed that Brad Renfro got effed when he was omitted from the RIP reel.


He also says Roy Scheider shouldn't have been excluded either, but Roy's death on Feb. 10 was after Academy's cutoff date of Jan. 31 for use in the broadcast.

Details, details.

It does not really matter as Hollywood has lost all the glamour and class that it used to have. The awards were so bad and the ratings were the worst ever. John Stewart is so not funny. Hollywood gave most of the awards to people from other countries. How sad is that statement. We do not even support our own actors in the USA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Very depressing!

Jeez people. To not know who Josh Lucas is? His potential hasn't been completely tapped yet in Hollywood but he's got great talent and great looks. And should he read this, PLEASE Josh, update your website. It's been down for over eons.

#52. then shame on them for honoring Heath Ledger, River Phoenix, et al. Do for one you must do for all. Perhaps they should revoke any posthumous honors for Kurt Cobain, Janis Joplin, Hendrix, etc. since they basically took their own lives as well including any mention in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame or any places like that. The suck as role models, too, and died by self-inflicted deaths.

That was supposed to be "they" suck....and I realize I am cross referencing entertainment genres but you can see our point.

Yah and they should keep their death montage strictly for actors, actresses, and directors. Half of the dearly departed in their tribute no one has even heard of..

The Academy website lists qualifications for mention in their Memorium Tribute. The person mentioned had to belong to the Academy. It is NOT an automatic thing. Brad Renfro was not a member, therefore not mentioned.

Can you get off the Paris flight?    

Exactly when can we let this actor and this discussion rest in peace? I am sure he will be in next years montage.
