Dear Brad Renfro,



We regret to inform you that you have not been selected to be a participant in this year's death montage. While there were many deserving candidates, we simply have neither the time nor the resources to feature every single person in the film industry who died this year.

Perhaps next time, you should try accidentally killing yourself with Oxycodone, Hydrocodone, Diazepam, Temazepam, Alprazolam & Doxylamine instead of heroin. We wish you the best of luck in all your posthumous endeavors, and thank you for your interest in our montage.

Sincerely,
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences

Nice. Those bureaucratic filth bags should be strung up. His contribution was formidable. Repugnant.

Now this is ridiculous! I gave them the benefit of the doubt, thinking perhaps it was because he wasn't an "Academy member" as I had heard some people say, but frankly, this is in poor taste and reflects their lack of professionalism. He gave so much to the craft, and for them to say, "..we can't fit everyone in", shows their lack of dedication to honoring members of the acting community. I have never liked the Academy Awards, and now I simply abhor them. Brad will always remain a gifted actor in my eyes, the kind that comes along only once in a great while.

Thanks for the giggle

It really is a disgrace, the guy made a real contribution to film and it was ignored on Oscar night.

I guess that will show him for not making Free Willy 4...

Thank you for bringing this up. I was so shocked and disgusted and hurt how they decided to snub Brad. Right, everybody, let's keep adoring Heath and ignore Brad!!! F--k the Oscars.
