For anyone who is a fan of movies or television shows, one of the bummers of watching the Academy Awards is the portion of the ceremony where they pause to remember the actors, actresses, and filmmakers who are no longer with us. No doubt there are those faces that flash up that make you say, “Oh, I forgot he died!” Yet despite the sadness of those moments, they also serve as a wonderful opportunity to pay one last tribute to people who have meant so much to us over the years. And that’s certainly what we’re doing with this guide to those who have passed away in 2018, ranging from Burt Reynolds to Charlotte Rae, Penny Marshall, Stan Lee, David Ogden Stiers, and Aretha Franklin, among others.
Please join us as we wish all of them one last goodbye, finding some satisfaction in the fact that their work — and therefore their memories — will live on.
Just scroll down to see the stars we lost in 2018.
