Cory Monteith was left out of the In Memoriam tribute at the Oscars Sunday night.
While he was primarily a TV actor, many on Twitter were upset that Calgary-born Monteith was not included in the Academy Awards segment dedicated to those who passed away over the past year.
Cory Monteith was in movies, too! Just not well known or nominated movies.— Sabrina Siddiqui (@SabrinaSiddiqui) March 3, 2014

Bit of a shame Cory Monteith was skipped from the montage, I'm sure he had as big of an impact as a lot of those mentioned— Talie Delemere (@TalieBTRC) March 3, 2014

You've got to be kidding me, how rude not showing Cory Monteith one amazing actor right along with the other actors on that screen. #Oscar— ❤LeaStrong❤ (@LeaCorygleelove) March 3, 2014
Missing you right now, @CoryMonteith. You would have had such a brilliant career and on that stage one day.— marion (@MarionheartLea) March 3, 2014
Philip Seymour Hoffman — who died last month with heroin, cocaine, benzodiazepines and amphetamines in his system —was the last to be honored during the Oscars tribute.
CORRECTION: A previous version of this story indicated that Monteith was born in British Columbia. He was born in Calgary, Alberta.
