They hate Illinois Nazis?

BlueRoseJS: They also left out Bea Arthur and Ricardo Montalban. Seems like they could have left out one of the long, lingering shots of some makeup artist no one heard of who did one film in 1943 to make room for them.

I remembered Khan, too, though I'd forgotten about Maude and Farrah. I guess they decided the video would only be as long as it took James Taylor to sing the Beatles song -- which is a surpassingly stupid idea.

Well ... it's not like Farrah can do anything about it.

Henrik Ibsen died in 1906, that's why.

Anarchangel: Last year, they left out Don LaFontaine. Worst snub ever.

In a world... where Don LaFontaine is snubbed by the Academy... voiceover announcers around the country show their displeasure by recording all further movie trailers in high-pitched, squeaky voices with Elmer Fudd speech impediments.

I would particularly like to see this for foreign/independent films. "...On the wings of couwage. In the spiwit of webewwion. On a stweet... called Wosenstwasse."

MJ wasn't a movie star either... unless you're counting that vomit inducing captain eo piece of crap film...


People in this thread seem to forget that a significant amount of the Academy Awards are given for work behind the camera. MJ's music has contributed to many films.

Farah Fawcett, like all those spoiled hollywood turds, is expendable.


Hollywood is, with few exceptions, just another assembly line of corporate owned american propaganda artists.


but at least the hurt locker should improve army enlistments. a great commercial for "fightin' fer freedom" and "killin' dem terroists!"

they left out Fawcett, but included a bunch of old producers nobody has ever heard of...might have something to do with who pays for the Oscars. My question is why the fark was Michael Jackson included??? He had a bit part in Men in Black II and starred in that horrible Wizard of Oz remake, oh and of course, Capatin Eo....

/I thought Martin and Baldwin did a good job. I like the 'roasting' of the nominees, makes the show less stuffy.

Yes. I'm glad they didn't have to tase Sean Penn, though he acted as though they might have, backstage.

They spent 10 minutes on John Hughes but couldn't give a two second nod to Farrah? Was she less of a movie star than TV star like Michael J. Fox or George Clooney, ..or just that their movies were more successful? Is Jennifer Anniston a TV star or a movie star? If she croaks, would they include her?

Farrah acted in at least three times as many theatrical releases as Jackson. She also can be credited with bringing to the forefront the whole issue of domestic violence. The sum total of Jackson's contributions to any kind of social responsibility was "We Are the World," which probably was as much (or more) Quincy Jones than him. And Quincy has about 500 times the talent as that twisted little pederast had.

Just when you think you have his Linux's IQ pegged at the right double-digit level, he posts something that causes you to revise your estimate downwards.

I kinda think for an actor to be included in the death montage, he or she should have to be generally recognized as either very good or iconic in film. I don't think Farrah ever gave an iconic film performance. "The Burning Bed" was a made-fer, wasn't it? That wouldn't count.

Can't really defend the inclusion of MJ.

James Cameron sucked the life-force out of her.

Also, people get old.

No one's commenting on his Jabba Jowls, either.

Yes and no, for me ... i alternate between appreciating them for sending up all the egoes in the room ... and wanting to see Billy Crystal in his prime back doing his unabashed celebration of show business.

Bea Arthur and Ricardo Montalban were both in more movies than MJ.
They also forgot James Whitmore. "Brooks" from Shawshank Redemption.

What about Dom Deluise? He was in one somewhat big movie (off the top of my head), which I believe Farrah was in also.

Ricardo Montalban was included in last year's, as was Heath Ledger, who really missed the cutoff and should have been in this year's montage.

/Like everyone else, I noticed Abe Vigoda was left off, AGAIN. He must beside himself over being snubbed annually.

Deluise was in the list. Peter Deluise's mullet-shaking registered a 4.2 on the Richter Scale. It turned Johnny Depp inside-out, right in his bed.

It's all in the montage.

Wait, what? Heath Ledger was well-dead long before TDK was released in 2008. He died in January of that year. By what standard should he be listed with the 2009 deaths?

For this alone, he should be there.

Seriously, deciding who's in and who's out of the list would be crazy-making.

Farrah should have trumped Michael Jackson.
 
2010-03-08 06:43:02 PM
How many films has Michael Jackson contributed music to?
Not to mention he sang "Ben" which won an Oscar, AND he performed at the Oscars.

Name one thing Farrah Fawcett did in direct relation to the Oscars.

She was a TV star who appeared in a few films.
He was a Music star who stared in a few films, contributed music to probably nearly 100 films, sang an Oscar winning song, and performed at the Oscars.

There is no comparison.
 
2010-03-08 06:54:32 PM
The Oscars didn't just snub Farrah Fawcett. They also managed to forget Bea Arthur, who admittedly is more famous as a TV star, and Henry Gibson, who worked heavily in both film and TV.
 
2010-03-08 07:11:48 PM
Interesting, I didn't even notice that. I was wondering if MJ was going to get a nod since all he really did on the big screen was "The Wiz".......nothing against MJ, but if they're going to include him for the one film, Farrah should certainly have been in there as well.

Lando Lincoln: Mugato: They don't just include movie stars in the dead people montage, dipshiats. It's movies, TV and music.

Which is stupid. The Academy Awards is about MOVIES. That's it. The Grammys can cover the dead musicians. The Emmys can cover the dead TV stars.


I'm not explaining it, I'm simply saying that in previous years they gave tribute to everyone in showbiz who croaked.

Mugato: I'm not explaining it, I'm simply saying that in previous years they gave tribute to everyone in showbiz who croaked.

Probably anyone the Academy included appeared in at least one movie. If a complete TV star such as Johnny Carson appeared in the montage the year he died, it's because he has film credits from occasionally playing himself in movies. Jay Leno will qualify as a film actor too, for doing the same thing.
