She owned the Oscars red carpet for years, but Joan Rivers was left out of this year’s tribute at the 87th Academy Awards.

The annual slot presented by Meryl Streep at the ceremony paid tribute to the likes of Robin Williams and Bob Hoskins, however viewers were quick to point out that Rivers’ name had not been mentioned.

It later emerged that her daughter Melissa had paid tribute to Rivers on the red carpet in a video that aired on E! during the Oscars-pre shows in the US.

Rivers hosted the E! Fashion Police from 2010 to 2014, and became known for her blunt commentary.

She starred in a number of television films and series including Curb Your Enthusiasm, How to Murder and Millionaire and The Love Boat, but the actress rarely appeared on the big screen.

Her film credits include  Iron Man 3, The Smurfs and The Hipsters. 

Rivers died on 28 August 2014 of a cardiac arrest.
