No Oscar love for “That Trailer Guy”

I’m a mite embarrassed that it took veteran animation writer/director/producer (among the scads of other things he does) Mark Evanier to point this out to me, but now that I’m thinking about it…

Isn’t it peculiar that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences failed to include Don LaFontaine in the Oscarcast’s annual “In Memoriam” segment this year?

As Mark correctly observes, The Don not only announced the Oscar ceremonies on several occasions, but he probably was responsible for selling more movie tickets than all of the other departed noteworthies combined.

How quickly they forget.
