BRAD RENFRO UPDATE

The Academy responds:
---
"Unfortunately we cannot include everyone," said Leslie Unger, spokeswoman for the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences. "Our goal is to honor individuals who worked in the many professions and trades of the motion picture industry, not just actors."

[...]

Unger shook off the suggestion that Renfro wasn't included because of his history with drugs. "I can't speak to what other people are going to think," Unger said. "We can't include everybody."

That sounds like a bunch of crap to me. They can't flash his picture for half a second in a montage? WTF? Did he piss off someone powerful? And how much time did they spend on Heath Ledger? (I didn't watch.)
