So why was she omitted from the “In Memoriam”?

Huffington Post said – While Rivers was not necessarily known for her movie appearances — though she did co-write and direct the 1978 movie “Rabbit Test” — the late comic is often cited as having redefined red-carpet culture.

Business Insider said – According to her IMDB page, Rivers boasts 38 acting credits to her name in a career that spans 63 years. She had roles in “Space Balls,” “Iron Man 3,” voiced a character in “Shrek 2,” directed Billy Crystal’s big screen debut in 1978’s “Rabbit Test,” and was the subject of 2010 documentary “Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work.”

Did the Hollywood Foreign Press just forget about her?
