90210 3.12 "Liars" Review

The second half of 90210's third season started last night and the only thing on my mind is that extraordinary performance by AnnaLynne McCord as she faced Mr. Cannon again for the last time we hope. Last night also introduced us to Dixon and Annie's Cousin Emily (Abbie Cobb), who nearly gave me a toothache and looks strangely like a baby Kelly Taylor clone or something.

Extremities, 90210 - Style

Naomi channeled her inner Farrah Fawcett from the  film "Extremities" as she beat the crap out of Mr. Cannon after he tried to force her and Silver into giving a false confession to clear his name. While trying to force Naomi to go to the bank to clear out her trust fund, Mr. Cannon didn't expect the two girls to fight back and he sure as hell didn't expect Naomi to snap the way she did. When Naomi picked up that

Farrah Fawcett missing from 'In Memoriam' at Oscars

Farrah Fawcett missing from 'In Memoriam' at Oscars
Though Farrah Fawcett's main claim to fame was television, the decision to leave her out of the "In Memoriam" segment of the Oscars has caused quite a stir. Fawcett appeared in 14 feature films in her lifetime. Although she was first featured as eye candy in box-office bombs like "Myra Breckinridge" (1970), she went on to earn a Golden Globe nom for her starring role in "Extremities" (1986) and reap an Indie Spirit bid for her performance opposite Oscar nominee Robert Duvall in "The Apostle" (1997). One of her final film roles was as the estranged wife of Richard Gere in Robert Altman's "Dr. T and the Women" (2000). Among those overlooked by the academy...

Oscars: Academy Defends Leaving Farrah Fawcett Out of Memorial Tribute

After learning that "Charlie's Angels" star Farrah Fawcett was left out of the Oscars' memorial tribute, many celebrities went online to express their shock. Jane Fonda wrote: "Where was Farrah Fawcett? She should have been included." Roger Ebert added: "No Farrah in the memorial. They have a whole lot of 'splaining to do." Some believe that the awards show left the actress out because of her predominant television careeer, but Fawcett had roles in "Logan's Run," "Cannonball Run," "The Apostle" and "Extremities," which earned her a Golden Globe nomination. Now, the Academy Awards is defending its decision, insisting that it's impossible to pay tribute to every star who passed away last year. "It is the single most troubling element of the Oscar show every year," said Bruce Davis, Oscars executive director. "Because more people die each year than can possibly be included in that segment. You are dropping people who the public knows.

Academy on Farrah Snub: 'Unfortunate Reality'
By Steve Pond

The “In Memoriam” segment of the Academy Awards draws criticism nearly every year, but this year’s is particularly pointed over the omission of Farrah Fawcett, who died last June.

An Academy spokesperson told the Associated Press, “Every year it’s an unfortunate reality that we can’t include everybody.” (The Academy has not responded to TheWrap's request for comment.)

Best known for her work in television, Fawcett made a number of feature films, including “Logan’s Run,” “The Apostle” and “Extremities...

Oscars Bosses Defend Fawcett Montage Snub

Oscars Bosses Defend Fawcett Montage Snub
Bosses at the Oscars have defended their decision to leave Farrah Fawcett out of the memorial montage - insisting it's impossible to pay tribute to every star who passed away in the last year.

The Charlie's Angels actress, who died in June, was absent from the Academy Awards' tribute section on Sunday night, which marked the deaths of stars including Brittany Murphy and Patrick Swayze.

The snub sparked speculation she was left out because of her predominant television career, with some online critics slamming the ceremony heads for not adding her to the clip.

Jane Fonda was also shocked Fawcett was left out, and wrote on Twitter.com: "Where was Farrah Fawcett? She should have been included."

Screenwriter Roger Ebert added, "No Farrah in the memorial. They have a whole lot of 'splaining (sic) to do."

And U.S. TV personality Star Jones is fuming the actress was not included, because she appeared in movies including The Cannonball Run and The Apostle and was even nominated for a Golden Globe for 1987 film Extremities.

Jones writes on her Twitter page, "Fyi (for your information)... Farrah had a very diverse career... that included Broadway, TV & Film. She even received a Golden Globe nom (sic)."

But Oscar bosses have defended their decision. Bruce Davis, the executive director of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, says, "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."

Farrah Fawcett's Oscar Omission Leaves Ryan O'Neal 'Disappointed'

On Sunday night during the "In Memoriam" segment of the Oscars telecast, a number of Hollywood's finest were remembered, including Michael Jackson, Patrick Swayze, Brittany Murphy and Ron Silver. But fans were quick to point out that "Charlie's Angels" star Farrah Fawcett was not included in the montage.

Fawcett's longtime partner, Ryan O'Neal, told People magazine in a statement, "There is no comment other than we were disappointed that she was not included."

But O'Neal isn't the only celebrity upset by the oversight. "No Farrah Fawcett in the memorial tribute? Major fail," Roger Ebert tweeted following the show.

Oscars 2010 In Memoriam: Michael Jackson, but no Farrah Fawcett, no Bea Arthur?

The Academy Award memorial montage seemed a little sparse this year.

It's not a huge surprise that Michael Jackson was included. He was the biggest death of 2009 and even though he was primarily a musical artist, he did act in a few films.

However, there were a couple notable absences in the montage. Where were Farrah Fawcett, who died in June of cancer, and Bea Arthur, who passed away in April at the age of 86?

In both Fawcett and Arthur's careers they were largely television stars, but both did grace the silver screen -- Fawcett was in "Cannonball Run," "Extremities" and "The Apostle," among others, while Arthur was in "Lovers and Other Strangers," "Mame" and "History of the World part I." They both appeared in more movies than Michael Jackson -- he really only appeared in "The Wiz" and his posthumously-released "This Is It." Why his inclusion and not theirs?

Farrah Fawcett receives posthumous Emmy Award nomination for 'Farrah's Story'

  • Gold Derby
Three weeks after Farrah Fawcett died, she earned the fourth Emmy nomination of her career, as executive producer of "Farrah's Story." The documentary detailed her courageous but ultimately losing battle against cancer. Viewers who tuned in to the May 15 special on NBC saw up close the valiant struggle of this onetime "Charlie's Angels" star. Fawcett's death was announced June 25 just hours before the end of voting to determine the nominees for this year's Emmy Awards. Television's highest honor eluded this small-screen icon, who earned three acting Emmy nominations during her three-decade-plus career. "Farrah's Story" was one of 43 shows in competition for the final five slots on the Emmy ballot for outstanding nonfiction special. It will now compete against "The Alzheimer's Project: Momentum in Science" (HBO); "Michael J. Fox: Adventures of an Incurable Optimist" (ABC), "102 Minutes That Changed America" (History), and "Roman Polanski: Wanted and Desired" (HBO). HBO and PBS documentaries

R.I.P. Farrah Fawcett (1947 – 2009)

  • Planet Fury
By Amanda Reyes

Farrah Fawcett is an icon. As part of the original trio of ridiculously beautiful and refined detectives known as Charlie’s Angels, the actress soared to untold heights of fame. She played Jill Monroe, the fun, furtively smart girl with golden tresses and a smile that could stop a missile en route. She only played Jill for one season, but left an impact on anyone who caught the show during its original run. Fawcett passed away at the age of 62 after a long and very public battle with anal cancer. She might not ever be synonymous with horror, but her resume is overflowing with plenty of incredible genre work on the big and small screen...

Before she was an Angel Fawcett worked mostly in commercials and in character roles on television. Appearing in everything from I Dream of Jeannie to McCloud, Fawcett was also honing her skills
