This year’s Emmy Awards honored many titans of television with their touching, powerful “In Memoriam” segment — but some fans were left disappointed. Many took to Twitter during the show to express their shock, confusion and anger that a few big names were left out of the memorial.

While the tribute was a beautiful celebration of life, not every star who died over the last year was included. Specifically, the exclusion of Nick CorderoKobe Bryant, and Kelly Preston took many viewers by surprise.

While Bryant — who tragically died in a helicopter crash on Jan. 26, alongside his 13-year-old daughter Gianna and seven others — wasn’t an actor, he was a mainstay on television during his years-long career. Many felt his legacy deserved to be honored, regardless of his involvement in TV production.

The real cause of outrage seemed to stem from where the virtual ceremony was held: The Los Angeles Staples Center, also popularly known as “the house that Kobe built.” So his exclusion from the “In Memoriam” was particularly jarring.
