Video: Farewell to those we lost in 2011

A tribute to those we lost in 2011, including the legendary Elizabeth Taylor, boxing giant Joe Frazier, tech visionary Steve Jobs, and the tragic and soulful Amy Winehouse. These four were a given for our video, but it was unavoidable to leave out a hundred others. Some will be honored in tributes during next year’s award shows, but below are a few more names of those who passed in 2011.

Who did we miss? Who would you like to honor and remember in your own life? Let us know on Twitter: #yearinreview
