Ryan O'Neal on Oscar Snub -- 'Poor Farrah'

3/8/2010 8:03 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Ryan O'Neal is "confused as anyone" by Farrah Fawcett not making the In Memorium cut at The Oscars last night -- and he plans on writing a letter to the Academy protesting the snub.

Ryan O'Neal: Click to watch
Moments ago outside his Malibu home, Ryan told cameras he and Tatum were "shocked" by the Farrah omission -- saying maybe it happened because "she wasn't well known enough."

FYI -- 88% of TMZ voters agree Farrah should have been part of the tribute.

I can’t believe they left her or Bea Arthur out of the tribute. I mean, cut some of those people that nobody has ever heard of. Sure, the guy who wrote “On The Waterfront” did a great job, but does anyone outside of that theater know who the hell he is? No. And they televise it during prime-time because they obviously want US, the normal public, to watch it. So why would you not include two people that were beloved by America? If they want it to be a snooty insiders thing then they should just keep it to themselves and I’ll be happy to watch something else.

Farrah was a MAJOR TV STAR. That's why.

Ok, call me a jerk but I do sympathize and it is too bad, but I mean, she wasn't Oscar material, she did tv, modelling and some crappy movies. There's no reason for her to be honoured by the Oscars. Emmy's maybe? That's just how those award shows roll.

This was a total slap in the face of reality. Farrah deserved to be included, she was an icon of the 70's. Everyone knew Farrah by the famous poster & the hair. After all that fluff she showed her acting chops more than once in great movie rolls. The Academy blew it big time!

They needed to have added Farrah & left out Brittney Murphy. I did not know who she was until she died. I did love Charlies Angels in the day.

Ok I agree with Ryan but he needs to shut up as I cannot forget him trying to come on to his own daughter Tatum at Farah Fawcetts funeral. He is trash!

She was not a "MOVIE" star. She was a "TELEVISION" STAR. Period.

Yes Farrah and Bea were basically TV stars but Farrah also appeared in around 12 or so and Bea was in like 3. If you put Michael Jackson in the tribute you should put Farrah and Bea. But Michael also had a few songs in movies.

Yeah, was Farrah in any motion pictures, or just ones that were on tv? She was remembered at the Emmy's. Still sad that she's gone.

ROFL this girl doesn't deserve to be an honorary mention anyways. She was a talentless hot chick back in the day..Similar to this generations Jessica Alba and Megan Fox..Just because someones in a movie doesn't mean they should be mentioned at the oscars..or even there in the first place.

Yes, most of her movies were television- but she was a big star, period. Michael Jackson was featured and his big movie was....... let me think..... hmmm..... Thriller?.... The Wiz? hmmmmm...... nope, no huge Oscar winning films coming to mind..... anyone?
