Things That Should Be Illegal: Leaving Farrah Fawcett And Bea Arthur Out Of The In Memoriam Oscar Montage
Farrah Fawcett and Bea Arthur were both left out of the In Memoriam Oscar montage last night. Should I call the police about this illegal activity or do you want to handle this? Or is the Fail Whale already on his way?!
Farrah and Bea are primarily known for being goddesses of TV, but they both have several films credits. Farrah was in Myra Breckinridge, Logan's Run, Dr. T and the Women and Extremeties! You know you still stop in your tracks every time Extremeties comes on TV at 3 in the morning. As for Bea, I shouldn't even have to explain why she should have been included. Whenever one has the chance to showcase Bea Arthur's precious face on a giant screen, they should take it NO MATTER WHAT! It's just common sense.
Radar asked the rep for the Oscars Leslie Unger what she had to say about snubbing the shiniest stars in heaven, and this was her answer: "It is highly unlikely that we forgot about Farrah Fawcett but we unfortunately don't include everyone each year. There are many angles that are looked at as to who to include and unfortunately we don't include everyone."
Bruce Davis, the executive producer of the Oscars, added this: “It is the single most troubling element of the Oscar show every year. Because more people die each year than can possibly be included in that segment. You are dropping people who the public knows. It’s just not comfortable.”
Leslie and Bruce will regret this dearly when their hair FAILS to flip and a piece of cheesecake FAILS to taste delicious.
