Audience members paid tribute to late stars at the 2014 Academy Awards which took place at Hollywood's Dolby Theatre on Sunday, March 2. During In Memoriam section, some stars such as Philip Seymour Hoffman, Paul Walker, James Gandolfini, Peter O'Toole, film critic Roger Ebert, child actress Shirley Temple Black and "Harry Potter" actor Richard Griffiths were remembered.

Hoffman passed away last month due to drug overdose at the age of 46. His notable works included "Capote", "Charlie Wilson's War", "Doubt" and "The Master". Walker, who is popular for his role in "Fast and Furious" movies, died in a fiery car crash in December, while Gandolfini who took part in "The Sopranos" passed away in Italy after having a heart attack.

"Ghostbusters" actor Harold Ramis who passed away in late February was also included in the tribute. Bill Murray, who co-starred in some movies with the late star, paid tribute while he was on stage to present the best cinematography award with Amy Adams. After the nominees were announced, he added, "We forgot one. Harold Ramis, for 'Caddyshack', 'Ghostbusters' and 'Groundhog Day'."

Hoffman was the last name which was mentioned in the clip. Bette Midler closed out the tribute with a beautiful performance of "Wind Beneath My Wings".

It was unconceivable that Kim Novak was not greeted with an standing ovation. Is this Hollywood generation so ignorant that they don't know the greats from the recent past?
