Stan Lee left out of SAG Awards In Memoriam tribute
Marvel fans were not happy about Stan Lee's absence from the video.January 28, 2019
The former writer, editor and publisher of Marvel Comics created several popular titles. Some of those include Spider-Man, X-Men, Iron Man, The Fantastic Four, The Incredible Hulk, Daredevil, Ant-Man, and Black Panther.
The film adaptation of Black Panther won big at the SAG awards. The film took home the awards for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture and Outstanding Action Performance by a Stunt Ensemble in a Motion Picture.
The In Memoriam video tribute during the ceremony included icons that passed last year such as Aretha Franklin, Burt Reynolds and Penny Marshall. However, Lee was left out despite his lasting impact on Marvel Comics and countless film cameos.
Lee passed away in November at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. He was 95.

Just watched SAG Awards, Happy for “Black Panther”, movie of the year, but wonder why Stan Lee was not remembered during “In Memoriam” segment. He was executive producer, actor, and SAG card holder.
Also disappointed no mention of Stan during acceptance speech. No Stan, no BP.

It’s disappointing to know that #StanLee wasn’t included in the “In Memoriam” section at the #SAG awards or mentioned during the “#BlackPanther” win:(. Without him and his immense footprint on the world of comics/pop culture, this win wouldn’t have been possible:(. #excelsior
