Jerry Lewis, Don Rickles, and Harry Dean Stanton were among the list of stars honored during the “In Memoriam” montage at the 90th Academy Awards Sunday night in Los Angeles.

“Every storyteller knows that there is no joy without sorrow,” said Jennifer Garner, who introduced the segment. “Tonight, as we celebrate the achievements of our collaborators, we also mourn the loss of those who brought joy and awareness through their passion for the movies. The work they left us, as Academy Award winner Audrey Hepburn said so beautifully, ‘Gives pleasure, creates beauty, awakens our conscience, arouses our compassion, and perhaps most importantly, gives millions a moment of respite in our violent world.”

“Though no longer in our midst, their contributions endure,” she continued. “And now, we remember their lives and their impact on motion pictures with a song from an inspirational artist we lost this past year.”

She then introduced Eddie Vedder, who honored the late Tom Petty with a performance of “Room at the Top” as the montage played.
