BREAKING: Oscars to Add Local Scene to In Memoriam Reel

LOS ANGELES — The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has announced that the recently dead Austin, Texas hardcore scene will be included as part of the In Memoriam reel during tonight’s 90th Academy Awards show, sources report.

“I’m not really sure why they needed to rub it in with a thing at the Oscars but hey, a shoutout’s a shoutout, I guess,” said former frontman Johnny Nielsen. “I just hope we’re wedged behind like, Bill Paxton or someone awesome and not some lameass story editor no one’s ever heard of.”

Austin is just the latest scene to die within the last five years and joins New York, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, and San Francisco.

This is a breaking news story. More updates to follow.
