Every year, the Oscars celebrates the lives of those in the film industry who have died since the last ceremony, from actors to directors to producers, in the In Memoriam section.

Many of the stars, including Chadwick Boseman, Helen McCrory, and Sir Sean Connery were remembered in the section – but some viewers were left puzzled by the ‘speedy’ pace of the montage, and the ‘upbeat’ music accompanying it.

‘Okay, let’s play the In Memoriam again but maybe not on double speed?’ one wrote on Twitter. ‘I’m fine remembering those who passed away at least as long as we played Name that Tune a few minutes ago.’

‘This year’s Oscars In Memoriam played accidentally at podcast 1.5x speed,’ another said.

‘They could’ve cut out that whole quiz thing and let the in memoriam section go longer instead of throwing up peoples names for .0001 seconds,’ one more added.

‘Man, even the In Memoriam was a huge tonal miss tonight. “3 million people died during a pandemic this year…so here’s a weirdly upbeat song while we click through the slides faster than usual,”‘ an unimpressed viewer said.
