Michael Winner was among the stars who were not honoured at last night's Academy Awards (February 24).

The late Death Wish director - who died last month aged 77 - did not feature in the ceremony's annual In Memoriam tribute.

New York Times reporter Michael Cieply has claimed that snubs may occur if the family of a deceased filmmaker or actor does not campaign for the inclusion as much as others.

Cieply said that "there's no shortage of input from out there in the community", adding that the full list of the deceased is expanded on the Oscars website.

Dallas actor Larry Hagman, actress Phyllis Diller and actor Robin Sachs were also among the stars not featured in the tribute, which saw Barbra Streisand perform 'The Way We Were'.

Cieply also quotes late Mash actor Harry Morgan's son Charley talk about his father's snub at the tribute in 2012.
