Farrah Fawcett Forgotten at Oscars

3/8/2010 10:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Farrah FawcettFarrah Fawcett did not make the cut for this year's In Memoriam tribute during last night's Academy Awards telecast ... leaving many scratching their heads.

Despite appearing in such classics as "Sunburn," "Saturn 3," "The Cannonball Run" and "Dr. T and the Women," Fawcett was passed over for more household names ... like Michael Jackson.

An Academy spokesperson told the AP, "Every year it's an unfortunate reality that we can't include everybody."

As if we need to be reminded of just how out of touch Hollywood is these days.

How could they have left out Farrah?? She's a timeless classic.

Also, at the beginning of the memorials, Patrick Swayze's picture was up, but his name wasn't shown. The whole show was really kind of a mess. . .

I was appalled that the Oscars didn't include Farrah in the memoriam lineup! I would much have rather seen her face up there on the big screen instead of that child pedophile Michael Jackson. Yuke!

If they don't have "time" to do it right, either remove the "public relations" people from the list or don't do it at all.

Who says you need a singer, and all the flashy graphics? A simple picture with the persons name for 1 or 2 seconds.... you could fit a lot more people in there instead of snubbing greats like Farrah or Bea Arthur.

Shocking! Half the people mentioned aren't even household names b/c they were "behind the scenes" people, so to think that Farrah Fawcett just couldn't "be included" is crap. If you're going to honor the dead, do so properly, if not, don't at all.

When it started I said they are going to leave someone out but you will see Michael Jackson up there. I like how everyone except Wacko Jacko had Producer, Director, Actor etc. up there but under his name it was blank.

"It is unfortunate that every year we cannot include everybody" what a sad statement, especially since they profited so well of people like Farrah Fawcett and Bea Arthur. That is a really crappy thing to say to cover up their gross negligence.

I agree...its a shame she wasn't included. Their answer to not be able to fit her in was poor...they actually showed some of them twice at the end. I know The Burning Bed was a TV movie but she did win a Golden Globe for that. Not the best resume for movies but still worthy of a mention. Sorry Farrah, you are in a better place then the Academy Awards anyway!

Michael was a musician, not an actor, he was in OZ, Captain Eo (if you can count that and not much more) Farrah was in many movies prior to and after Charlie's Angels. She was a very talented actress who won much acclaim. They included the great Kathrine Greyson even though she just died a few weeks ago and had not worked in 40 years, they should have made room for Farrah.

Why are u guys surprised?...We're talking about the Oscars, the Oscars is staged and completely boring. But not adding FARRAH to the list that's inexcusable...

If they included Michael Jackson...how many movies was he in? 1 maybe. Then they should have included Farrah. And how could they have forgotten her, she died on the same day as MJ. But the worse of the worse is that they forgot about BEA ARTHUR! Now that alone is a travesty. Same on you Mr. Oscar! SHAME!
