Sunday night's Oscars® featured a low key tribute to Whitney Houston.
Reaction to the muted Whitney tribute is mixed.
"She is known for being a singer rather than an actress," wrote one blogger.
On the Oscars® own website, a viewer commented, "What? No sound bites, clips or anthing of Whitney? C'mon Academy."
Meanwhile, Houston's mother, Cissy, reportedly plans to make a poignant visit to the hotel room where her daughter died. Seeking closure, Cissy allegedly wants to spend contemplative time alone in room 434 of the Beverly Hilton Hotel.
