During the 'In Memoriam' segment of Oscars 2010 a number of Hollywood's stars were remembered, including Michael Jackson, Patrick Swayze, Ed McMahon, Brittany Murphy and Ron Silver. But in this segment Farrah Fawcett was notably absent from tribute.
ON THE award night of Oscars 2010 or Academy Awards 2010 on Sunday at Kodak Theatre in LA the "In Memoriam" segment of the Oscars was telecast. During the "In Memoriam" segment a number of Hollywood's stars were remembered, including Michael Jackson, Patrick Swayze, Ed McMahon, Brittany Murphy and Ron Silver. But in this segment Farrah Fawcett and Bea Arthur were notably absent from the tribute. And it did not go unnoticed.
The former Charlie's Angels star Farrah Fawcett died in June last year, at 62 after long battle with cancer. The segment "In Memoriam" opened with a portrait of Patrick Swayze but had not mention of Farrah Fawcett. Demi Moore
presented the segment. Speaking before the ceremony, Academy executive director Bruce Davis said the memorial section always presented problems.
Farrah Fawcett was mostly known for her TV work, including in the movie The Burning Bed and the series Charlie's Angels, but had prominent roles in a number of feature films, including The Apostle with Robert Duvall, Dr. T and the Women with Richard Gere
and Logan's Run. During her career she was nominated for Golden Globe award and Oscars.
