Patricia Arquette responds to late sister Alexis Arquette's In Memoriam snub at Oscars

The Academy's In Memoriam segment from Sunday night's Oscars didn't include the late actress Alexis Arquette, who passed away back in September of 2016.

The trans activist and actress was nowhere to be found in the emotional video package, and her sister Patricia Arquette was not pleased.

"I was really pissed off the Academy left out my sister Alexis in the memoriam, because Alexis had a great body of work, but Alexis was one of the very few trans artists that worked in the business," Arquette explained to ABC News.

Alexis's IMDB page lists 70 acting credits for the late star, including "The Wedding Singer" and "Pulp Fiction."

"At a time when we have trans kids that can't even go to the bathroom at school, you would think the academy would have a little bit more respect for a group of people that are murdered," Patricia continued. "Trans women of color are most likely to live in extreme poverty, making $800 a month, so I think the Oscars have a lot of learning to do."

Arquette's grievance wasn't the only controversy to come out of the segment, either: Twitter erupted overnight after noticing that the In Memoriam package mistakenly featured Australian producer Jan Chapman, who is very much alive.
