And rightly so!
Farrah Fawcett's close friend and filmmaker Craig Nevius wants the Academy to issue a public apology for omitting Farrah during the memorial montage during the Oscars last night.
"Farrah's shocking omission from the 'In Memoriam' montage on the Oscars isn't a reflection of Farrah. It's a reflection of the producers and of the Academy itself. After all, this is a broadcast - as opposed to a 'production' - that has become all about shuffling winners on and off stage and cutting off acceptance speeches in order to make more air time for jokes without punchlines and scripted spontaneity the likes of which we haven't seen since vaudeville.
"They should be ashamed of themselves and owe a public apology in the name of Farrah Fawcett."
The Academy has responded to the Farrah outrage citing that it's not possible to pay tribute to every star who passed away over the last year, but we think that's bullshiz!
They definitely should have made room for Farrah (AND Bea Arthur)!
What do U think?
