Mira Sorvino Slams Oscars for Excluding Dad Paul Sorvino from ‘In Memoriam’ Segment

This is what Mira Sorvino, who’s also an Oscar winner tweeted, “I for one am remembering Dad on this Oscars night…It is baffling beyond belief that my beloved father and many other amazing brilliant departed actors were left out. The Oscars forgot about Paul Sorvino, but the rest of us never will.” she wrote.

There are some other omissions from the award show including Anne Heche and Charlbi Dean, a star of best picture nominee “Triangle of Sadness.”


The wife of Paul Sorvino named Dee Dee Sorvino reacted and later demanded an apology from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

This is what Dee Dee wrote after releasing an official statement, “Paul Sorvino was one of the greatest actors in cinematic history in Hollywood. It is unconscionable that he would be left out of the In Memoriam segment of the Oscars. It’s a three-hour show, they can’t give a couple more minutes to get it right? Paul Sorvino gave decades to this industry and was loved by all.”

“Paul was not the only deserving soul left out, and a QR Code is not acceptable. The Academy needs to issue an apology, admit the mistake and do better. Paul Sorvino deserves better, the audience deserves better. Is the Academy so jaded they forget people who are loved, who have given their hearts to this industry? Shame on the Academy if this is not corrected. Mistakes are made, this was a big one. Please do something to make it right,” she added.

It was on Monday, March 13, 2023 when the 95th Academy Awards took place at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.
