At the conclusion of the 'In Memoriam' segment during the Oscars Sunday, viewers may have noticed a small graphic and photo identifying Sarah Jones on screen. Not a movie star, famous director or other Hollywood luminary, Sarah was an assistant cameraperson killed in a horrific on-set train accident two weeks prior. The push to have her recognized at the Oscars was driven in part by the Facebook group 'Slates for Sarah', where hundreds of production crews across the globe have posted tribute photos mourning her loss. Her death is being investigated as negligent homicide, and has spurred 'below-the-line' crew worldwide to demand greater set safety protocols.
