Two weeks after Joan Rivers was left out of the Grammys In Memoriam segment, the legendary comedian was inexplicably left out of the 2015 Oscars In Memoriam montage.

True, Rivers' main film credit -- as writer/director on 1978's Rabbit Test -- was ill-received, but her presence on the red carpet was an Academy Awards staple for years. Realistically, modern red carpet culture is unthinkable without Rivers.

And given that the In Memoriam segment features journalists and other famous people with minimal film credits (Maya Angelou directed one film, 1998's Down in the Delta), it's a definite snub that Rivers wasn't included.

So... Academy, can we talk?!
