Academy representative responds to Joan Rivers' In Memoriam snub

A representative for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has defended the producers’ decision to omit Joan Rivers from the traditional In Memoriam segment at the Oscars on Sunday night, blaming time constraints for the snub.

Meryl Streep introduced the picture montage at Los Angeles’ Dolby Theatre and Jennifer Hudson performed after celebrities like Robin Williams, Lauren Bacall, Bob Hoskins, Mike Nichols, Mickey Rooney and Maya Angelou were remembered at Hollywood’s big night.
