Not just Farrah and Bea Arthur

Here are eight film notables who died in 2009 that had just as much right to be listed among last Sunday's Oscar Memorial as did Farrah Fawcett and Bea Arthur, but were likewise omitted.

Those are some notable omissions. I'll especially miss McGoohan. I am not a number! I am a free man!

James Whitmore, having passed away in early 2009 prior to the broadcast of the Academy Awards show on 2/22/09, was included in the previous year's broadcast.

The others, as you noted, have been sadly overlooked completely.

You are right! Thanks for the correction.
