Jennifer Aniston held back tears while introducing the In Memoriam segment at Sunday night's Academy Awards.

The segment, which remembers those in Hollywood we lost this year, was especially emotional as 61-year-old actor Bill Paxton died suddenly Saturday due to complications from surgery. The news of his death was announced hours before the show.
