If you're like us, you watched Sunday night's Oscar "In Memoriam" section and said, "Wait, where's Farrah Fawcett?" The actress may have been best known for her role on TV's Charlie's Angels, but she also appeared in several movies, including the sci-fi films Logan's Run and Saturn 3.

She died last June of cancer, an ordeal she shared with millions in a documentary called Farrah's Story.

The Oscar academy admits leaving Fawcett out was not "an oversight," but we respectfully disagree.

Farrah's most notable appearance in a sci-fi film was a brief role in the classic 1976 movie Logan's Run, in which she played opposite Michael York and Jennie Agutter.

She had a more substantial role in 1980's Saturn 3, an inferior movie but one in which she shared screen time with a stellar cast that included Kirk Douglas and Harvey Keitel.

She made a mark as a serious actress in other films, including Robert Duvall's The Apostle and TV's The Burning Bed.

Here's a sampling of Fawcett's roles in sci-fi and elsewhere. May she rest in peace, and we'll miss her.
