Late actress/singer Eartha Kitt's former publicist has lashed out at Oscar producers for omitting her from a segment paying tribute to stars who had passed away over the past year.
Kitt died on Christmas Day (25Dec08) after losing her battle with colon cancer, aged 81.
Best-known for her role as Catwoman in the original 1960s Batman TV show, the Santa Baby singer also co-starred in movies with Nat King Cole, Sammy Davis Jr. and Sidney Poitier.
And the Emmy winner's former publicist, Andrew Freedman, is outraged her glittering career was overlooked during Sunday's (22Feb09) telecast.
He tells the New York Post, "The producers are either 12 or have been living under a rock for the past 60 years. It's clear that they thought that publicist Warren Cowan was more of a household name. Go figure."
The Academy Award's In Memoriam segment featured Charlton Heston, Paul Newman, Sydney Pollack and dozens of stars who passed away in 2008.
