Amid an evening of fanfare and glitz, Sunday's 86th annual Academy Awards took a moment to honor the luminaries Hollywood lost this year.

The moving tribute paid homage to stars including Paul Walker, Shirley Temple, Philip Seymour Hoffman and James Gandolfini. Notably left off the list was late "Glee" actor Cory Monteith. Actor Dennis Farina, comedian Jonathan Winters, actor James Avery, actress Lisa Robin Kelly, actor Lee Thompson Young, and writer Tom Clancy were also excluded from the montage.

An extended piece online honored more than 100 Hollywood contributors. Monteith, who boasts various film credits as well, did receive a spot in the expanded memorial.

This isn't the first time major stars haven't been included. Big names such as Farrah Fawcett and Corey Haim were not mentioned during the In Memoriam segment of the Oscars in previous years.

Bette Midler made her Oscars singing debut during the segment, performing the '80s classic "Wind Beneath My Wings."

The 2014 Oscars were hosted by Ellen DeGeneres at Hollywood's Dolby Theater.
