Mira Sorvino snipes at Oscars for omitting Paul Sorvino from ‘In Memoriam’ segment


Actress Mira Sorvino lambasted the Oscars for omitting her late father, “Goodfellas” star Paul Sorvino, from the “In Memoriam” montage on Sunday.

“I for one remember dad from that Oscar night,” Sorvino tweeted on Sunday. At the 1996 Oscars, Sorvino memorably brought her pop to tears as she thanked him by accepting her Best Supporting Actress statuette for “Mighty Aphrodite.”

Sorvino had posted a clip of the moment on his Instagram, with the warm words: “In this first year after his passing, it is truly a bittersweet but beautiful memory. I love you dad, I miss you so much.

On Monday, Sorvino got more explicit with her review, calling it “disconcerting beyond belief that my beloved father and many other amazing deceased brilliant actors” don’t appear in the “In Memoriam” segment.

Paul Sorvino died at 83 last July, after starring in films such as ‘Reds’, ‘Nixon’, The Rocketeer’ and ‘That Championship Season’.

The “In Memoriam” segments are compiled by a committee of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Other notable omissions from this year’s reel include Anne Heche, Leslie Jordan, Tony Sirico and Tom Sizemore. South African actor Charlbi Dean, who starred in best picture contender ‘Triangle of Sadness’ and died aged 32 of sepsis in August, was also not included. However, all made the Academy’s online list.

Apparently Robert Blake, who died days before this year’s Oscars, did not appear on either the mailing list or the online version. Blake starred in the 1967 film “In Cold Blood,” but was arguably best known for being tried and acquitted in the murder of his wife Bonny Lee Bakley.
