Every year it seems, the Academy comes under fire for forgetting/excluding somebody during the memorial part of the telecast to honor those in the industry who have passed away. It always seems someone is left out for whatever dubious reason, but leave it to the folks at TCM to try and get it right, and do it with style.

Every year it seems, the Academy comes under fire for forgetting/excluding somebody during the memorial part of the telecast to honor those in the industry who have passed away. It always seems someone is left out for whatever dubious reason, but leave it to the folks at TCM to try and get it right, and do it with style.

The channel has just unveiled their lengthy, moving and touching "TCM Remembers 2011" video to honor those who have left us this year. 2011 has seen an unfortunate number of legendary, important and influential folks pass on: Pete Postlethwaite, Peter Yates, Maria Schneider, Jane Russell, Peter Falk, Farley Granger, Sidney Lumet, Laura Ziskin, Elizabeth Taylor and more left us with silver screen memories this year, and TCM finds a place for (most) of them.

It's a touching tribute, and fittingly, it's one that isn't cramped by the constraints of a televised broadcast, so watch it below. And in related news, the network is making the television broadcast debut of Stanley Kubrick's hard-to-find and unavailable-on-DVD debut "Fear and Desire" tonight at 8 pm. Set those DVRs, folks.
