Farrah's ousted producer responds to Emmy nomination

Television and documentary producer Craig Nevius may have been shoved out of the Farrah Fawcett documentary project that was eventually turned into an NBC TV special, but he managed to retain his executive producer credit, and was therefore among the names announced this morning when Farrah's Story was nominated for an Emmy.

Nevius sent us this gracious statement, which gives all honor to Farrah, who was nominated posthumously:

"Unfortunately, Farrah is not here to appreciate the result of her bravery and creativity. But fortunately her 92 years young father is here to bask in the glow of his daughter's honor. When I shared the good news with him this morning, he demonstrated his usual dry wit and asked: 'Is there any way for me to take credit for this?' I told him he could take all the credit. Because he gave the world Farrah. He and Mrs. Fawcett were delighted.'"

Farrah Fawcett's father is very funny and sweet....AND STRONG. God Bless James Fawcett, he must be so proud of Farrah.
