TCM Remembers 2016

Turner Classic Movie's annual memorial is predictably - and reliably - beautiful and heartbreaking. We lost some good ones this year. A couple days ago while watching TCM I noticed that they added Zsa Zsa Gabor in at the end, right before Gene Wilder (she's not in this original version, which was created prior to her recent death). Here's hoping they don't have to add Carrie Fisher at the last minute. 2016 has been brutal in celebrity deaths.

Updated 12/27/16: Unfortunately they had to add another one in today - RIP Carrie Fisher.

Updated 12/28/16: You can't make this stuff up - the day after Carrie's death, her mother Debbie Reynolds has died. Singin' in the Rain was one of the greatest things ever. I think everyone knew Carrie's death would be crushing for her, but not this fast. Condolences to everyone involved.
