All right, all right, we agree that it was TOTALLY effed up, but nothing can be done now, so let's get off the press circuit and try to let it go, people!!
Friends of Farrah Fawcett are still up in arms about the late actress's Oscar snub this year and, despite a
half-assed apology from Academy bosses, are still speaking out publicly about what they are calling "unforgivable!"
Alana Stewart Hamilton, a producer of the documentary Farrah's Story, says:
"I think they are saying they are sorry that family members and friends are upset. It is not just family members and friends. I said that to Mr. Davis, in all due respect, today. I said, it is millions of fans. The minute she was not part of that memorial, it started on Twitter. The emails I've gotten, people are outraged by it…I just want to make one point. In all due respect, Michael Jackson is a huge music icon, but I believe he only did one movie."
Candy Spelling - WTF? - is also not happy about the snub and says:
"I was very surprised. I also was surprised with Jean Barry and Bea Arthur. Bea Arthur was excluded. She was in at Annie Mame, with Lucille Ball, not the original one. She did another film or two. Because she was so well known as Maude and Golden Girls, they thought she was more television."
We honestly sympathize. But we think it's time to stop using this as an excuse to get press.
It sucks that they did it, but we think everyone just needs to go back to honoring Farrah's memory and eff the Academy.
What do U think?? Is it time to let Farrah's Oscar snub go??
