Tatum O'neal 'Deeply Saddened' By Fawcett Snub

TATUM O'NEAL is "deeply saddened" FARRAH FAWCETT was omitted from the 2010 Academy Awards' tribute to dead stars, insisting the late actress was an icon and deserved to be included.
Tatum's father Ryan O'Neal, Fawcett's longtime lover, has already revealed plans to write a letter to Oscar bosses demanding an explanation as to why the Charlie's Angels star was kept off the annual In Memoriam list.
The Paper Moon actress is equally upset and has issued an official statement expressing her disappointment.
She says, "On behalf of myself, my father Ryan O’Neal and my entire family, we are deeply saddened that a truly beautiful and talented actress Farrah Fawcett was not included in the memorial montage during the 82nd Academy Awards. We are bereft with this exclusion of such an international icon who inspired so many for so many reasons. Beautiful, talented Farrah will never be forgotten by her family and amazing fans."

I have to totally agree with Tatum and Ryan. I have only just learned of this and it is beyond belief that Farrah was missed off this list of departed actors at the Oscars. She was a 70's icon that inspired even the look of the Barbie doll during that era. Farrah was a brilliant actress and of course without any doubt she meant so much to Ryan and Tatum. Lets all raise an honour to her regardless. Her passing was outshadowed by another stars passing on the same day yet she deserved every much as honour and publicity as the one who died at the same time.Carl
