Snubbed at the Oscars

America's angel was missing from the tribute video at last night's Oscar awards ceremony.

Best known for her work on television, hairstyles and raising awareness of cancers we didn't used to talk about, Farrah Fawcett was still a movie star. While many are claiming that the snub is result of her not being a movie actress, these critics are forgetting that she had starring roles in The Apostle, Extremities, Dr. T and the Women and Man of the House.

The Oscar's touching tribute featured James Taylor singing The Beatles classic In My Life as a montage of Hollywood's fallen flashed onscreen. Those honored included Michael Jackson, Brittany Murphy and Patrick Swayze.

As gossip columnist Shinan Govani points out, the craziest part about the snub was Oscar producer Adam Shankman's reaction to Farrah's death last summer. Shankman had tearfully tweeted, "Farewell Farrah. Forever you will be an angel here on earth, and now in heaven."

So Academy, what's with the Farrah snub?
