‘Friends’ fans ‘saddened’ after Matthew Perry is snubbed from BAFTAs’ In Memoriam segment

The BAFTAs faced backlash after failing to include Matthew Perry in the 2024 ceremony’s In Memoriam segment. Fans criticized the academy on X, with one user calling it “Bad form” and another expressing disappointment. BAFTA responded, explaining that Perry would be remembered at the TV Awards ceremony and shared an online tribute to the late star.

Matthew Perry, who passed away in October 2023, was known for his role in “Friends” and in movies like “17 Again” and “The Whole Nine Yards.” His absence from the BAFTAs’ tribute was especially noticeable after he was included in the 2023 Emmy Awards’ In Memoriam segment. Although Perry’s “Friends” co-stars were not present to witness the tribute, the executive producers revealed that they were not given an invite due to the recent loss still being a sensitive subject for them. Overall, the omission of Matthew Perry from the BAFTAs’ tribute sparked criticism and disappointment from fans and viewers alike.
