Abe Vigoda's Daughter Says She's 'Disappointed' Her Dad Was Left Out By The Oscars
The 94-year-old Godfather actor passed away last month at his home in New Jersey - but there was no sign of him during the Oscars' 'In Memoriam' tribute.
One famous face was missing during the Oscars' "In Memoriam" tribute on Sunday night: Abe Vigoda.
The 94-year-old Godfather actor passed away last month at his home in New Jersey.
When his daughter, Carol Vigoda Fuchs, watched the awards show, she was shocked her dad wasn't part of the tribute.
"'So where is it? What happened?'" she asked, she told INSIDE EDITION. "It was very, very disappointing. How could they forget [him]? How could they do that?"
Vigoda was the butt of many death hoax rumors for decades after first being mistakenly reported dead 34 years ago.
After the omission on Sunday, Twitter lit up.
