Forgetting stars in the Academy Awards "In Memoriam" segment is almost as much a tradition as the fashion and speeches. But which stars missed out on live Oscars broadcast in 2014? Cory Monteith, Dennis Farina, Sarah Jones and Tom Clancy are among those not memorialized on TV.
Thanks to the Internet, the 86th Academy Awards can claim to honor just about everyone in film who died. Still, there's a bit of a slight felt by fans of those deemed unworthy for the telecast. Here are some of the biggest names left out of the video:
Jonathan Winters -- Died: April 11, 2013. Claim to Oscar fame: "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World," "The Russians Are Coming the Russians Are Coming," "The Smurfs"Gary David Goldberg -- Died: June 22, 2013. Claim to Oscar fame: "Must Love Dogs," sitcoms from "Family Ties" to "Spin City"Cory Monteith -- Died: July 13, 2013. Claim to Oscar fame: "Glee, »
Although we have yet to hear any official confirmation from Sony Pictures, a new report from Variety reveals that The Smurfs 3 will be completely animated, as opposed to 2011's The Smurfs and 2013's The Smurfs 2, both of which were live-action/animation hybrids.
It is believed that The Smurfs 2's $347 million worldwide box office take, which was $215 million less than The Smurfs' $563.7 million, is a reason the decision to go with a fully-animated sequel was made. Both movies made over 70% of their worldwide grosses from international markets.
What's interesting is that The Smurfs' main villain Gargamel has been portrayed in live-action by Hank Azaria, so it isn't clear if the studio is crafting a new villain, or if they will simply use Gargamel in animated form. Other live-action cast members from The Smurfs and The Smurfs 2 include Neil Patrick Harris and Jayma Mays as Patrick and Grace, »
"Modern Family" star Sofia Vergara is so funny and she's just been edging into funny movies like playing the villain in The Smurfs, and playing smaller roles in The Three Stooges, New Year's Eve and Escape from Planet Earth. But finally, she's going to do a female buddy comedy with another of our faves, Reese Witherspoon (Monsters vs Aliens). In Don't Mess with Texas, Reese will play a cop and Sofia will play a prisoner who have to go on the lam together (you know, this would be even funnier if it were Mf's Gloria who was a prisoner on the run!). In talks to direct the film is Anne Fletcher, who made her mark putting comedic duos together with The Proposal. »

Neil Patrick Harris, dressed in a wig, lingerie and red heels, took the stage at Harvard University on Friday to accept the 2014 Man of the Year Award from America's oldest undergraduate drama troupe. The How I Met Your Mother star cast a few spells, saved someone's life and sang a jingle from Rent before being awarded the Hasty Pudding Theatricals' annual Pudding Pot. "I felt remarkably good in heels," Harris - who is set to headline the drag-themed Broadway debut of Hedwig and the Angry Inch - said after the ceremony, adding that he had spent seven hours stomping around »
