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 loved her and they did her wrong in a big way. However, I can't help but wonder at the irony of her dying from anal cancer, when it is clearly Ryan O'Neal who walks like he has the stick up his tush. I've heard of sympathy pains...but this is ridiculous!

Why is the accussers name always protected? Her name should be thrown threw the news reel as well as Big bens. Why was a 20 year old at a night club that serves alcohol? If you ask me this women is looking for her free meal ticket . Another one of the mooches in life. What kind of job does she have ? Does she live at home? Sounds to me like she looked at his vital stats on line before she made the allogations. She just happened to know that THe hight of the perp. was 6 ft 4 in and the perp. weight was241. wow she nailed his exact weight and height . I wonder if she ever worked for a carnival before.

She's DEAD! Move on! Ryan if you cared anything about farrah, you would have married her (not on her death bed). Your a huge looser just like your god son's father.

oh, your gonna die, I guess i'll marry you then. A$$HOLE!

Farrah was most known for her work in TV as well as Bea, Micheal was included because he had a staring role in a widely popular movie where he played the Scarecrow in "The Wiz". Not to mention his work is mentioned in a ton of movies including "13 going on 30","Men in Black 2","Rush hour 2","Dreamgirls","Dream a little dream 2","Free willy","Zoolander","The wedding singer","Captain EO" and "Bruno" to name a few. So wash the sand out of your v@ginas and relax!

Yes Farrah should have been mentioned . She was a excellent actress. She was way better then Miss Bullock who is such a drag to watch. I can't think of any of her little plastic movies that deserved an Oscar. I guess she cried enough somebody had to give the no-talent Bullock one to shut her up. Don't get me started on how this no-talent bitch gets an Oscar.

At least they got Michael Jackson in there ... you know, for all of his great contributions to the motion picture industry. Wait ... Thriller wasn't a movie? That's okay, because the Best Music Video is always awarded at the Oscars. It's not? Hmmm.......

Maybe she wasn't mentioned because she was more a TV star than a screen star. She would have been mentioned at the Emmy's. Michael was a musician but he did star in "This Is It" a film in which he "starred" in, a very successful film at that. Just a thought ,besided like I said before Michael made very ICON short films..I to call music videos.

Ryan take that ugly son of yours and go to your favorite cook in Riverside for a special batch of Meth and don't come back.

We have been sick of you for so so long and until Farah brought you back from the dead we thought and hoped you were dead.

I here the eviction notice for your place is being drafted up.

It is this simple a.) Farrah was not liked or respected in this town. There was little star power at her funeral. b.) Ryan O Neal is not only not respected but hated in this town

I will never watch the awards again! It has become so boring the last couple of years and then to do that to FARRAH!
she was a movie star. The few pictures she made were excellent and she should have won a award for burning bed. I am sickened by the lack of respect shown to both stars although I will have to admit that Bea was a tv star She still was a STAR in the show business world.
I cannot believe they could be so stupid and insensitive to both of these great Hollywood icons.

For those of you that say she was only a TV star....that's total BS!! Did anyone ever see a movie called "The Apostle?" Well it had an OSCAR nomination....and she was in the movie!
