Stars We Lost In 2011
As 2012 approaches, it's appropriate to look back at which stars we lost over the last year. As always, the number of famous names on the list seems astounding. Each one meant something to many people, and their legacies will live on forever in the hundreds of films, TV shows and songs on which they left their mark.

It's impossible to include everyone, but we think these are among the most notable deaths of the year.

Let's take a look back. These are in no particular order.

Harry Morgan, 96

The lovable TV and film actor will always be best known for playing the fatherly Col. Potter on '...

Making interesting stories and the characters within his focus, Lumet was the maestro behind such work as "Network," "The Verdict" and "Dog Day Afternoon," with his films tallying an impressive thirty-six nominations and whopping thirty-three wins. And even though he never won an Oscar for his amazing directing (he got the 'Honorary Award' in 2005)...
