Renfro Snubbed At Oscars

Tragic actor BRAD RENFRO was snubbed at Sunday's (24Feb08) Academy Awards when organisers left him out of a montage of stars who died in the past year. Renfro was found dead from a drug overdose in Los Angeles in January (08), aged just 25. But he was overlooked on a list of 98 movie industry people, that included everyone from actors and directors to public relations people. A statement from the Motion Picture Academy of America claims, "It is simply not possible to include everyone in that segment." But a friend of the late star of The Client, Apt Pupil and Sleepers tells TMZ.com, "It's unbelievable and disgusting."
