The morning after criticism of ABC’s broadcast of the Academy Awards has included a question about why Farrah Fawcett, who died the same day as Michael Jackson, was excluded from the In Memoriam montage, while Jackson was included, E! Online reports.
Leslie Unger, spokesperson for the Academy, today said that Farrah had been left out because she was deemed more of a TV personality, although as E! Online reported in their story, Fawcett made more films than Jackson.
Unger said, "In any given year there will always be some people that other people think should have been included and that there’s more justification for one person versus another. It is impossible to include everybody."
