OB - In Memorium

Its a bittersweet and powerful sequence - the In Memorium montage and I love it. It's my favorite part of the Academy Award telecast. No matter how closely I attempt to keep up with the obituary column, there's always a couple of surprises in this part of the show, like the death of Miyoshi Umeki, who won an Academy Award for best supporting actress in 1957 for Sayonara, but is perhaps best remembered as Mrs. Livingston on the TV show The Courtship of Eddie's Father.
