2010 Oscars: Farrah Fawcett Excluded From 'In Memoriam'


Farrah Fawcett


The late 'Charlie's Angels' star was not acknowledged during the special montage that honors the deceased who have contributed a lot in the film world.

The Academy is facing criticism for singling out Farrah Fawcett from the "In Memoriam" tribute. The actress, who had a long battle with cancer and eventually succumbed to the disease on June 25 last year, was excluded from the Oscars montage along with Bea Arthur.

Fawcett has starred in a number of acclaimed TV and movies such as "Charlie's Angels" and "Dr. T and the Women". Her celebrity friends who watched the Oscars from home have wondered why the actress was snubbed. "And where was Farrah Fawcett? She should have been included," Jane Fonda tweeted. Meanwhile, film critic Roger Ebert tweeted, "No Farrah Fawcett in the memorial tribute? Major fail."

Bea Arthur died in April last year at the age of 86. She has starred in TV series such as "Maude" and "The Golden Girls".

Although missing the two actresses in the tribute, Oscars producers Adam Shankman and Bill Mechanic made a special and individual tribute for director/scribe John Hughes. Known for his work in "The Breakfast Club" and "Home Alone" series, Hughes died in August last year.
