We asked our Facebook fans how they felt about Farrah Fawcett not being included in the Oscar’s tribute to industry people who passed away last year. Here’s what you had to say:

Tracy Spencer-Bromage: Really this is shocking and sad. She was an influence in her day and should be mentioned. Shame. Keith Michael Davis She is the reason I am a stylist. I met her while I was in hair school in ’77. She changed the direction of my life; my career is tribute enough to my beloved friend.

Rigo Ortiz: Farrah Fawcett was a TV actor! Farrah was acknowledged at the Emmys and the Golden Globes. They showed Michael Jackson because The Wiz played in the theaters.

Glenn Hawker: Farrah’s movie credits are Logan’s Run, The Cannonball Run, Saturn 3 and Sunburn to name a few ... I could go on for those of you who don’t truly know her career ... she should have been mentioned!
