Corey Feldman Mad About Corey Haim's Oscar Snub

2/28/2011 9:33 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Corey Feldman is upset that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences left his good pal Corey Haim off the Oscars "In Memoriam" segment -- saying the Academy does not "have a handle on who the public adores."

Feldman tells TMZ he's particularly upset since the same "public outcry" occured after Haim was left off the SAG memorial as well.

Feldman tells us, "Corey's films have earned the industry over a half a billion dollars and his work remains an inspiration to young artists world wide ... Corey dedicated his life to the film industry. The same industry that failed to dedicate even 30 seconds to his memory."

For their part, the Academy released a statement that reads: "Whatever the length of the sequence, there will always be fans and family members of those not included who will be disappointed by their omission. The Academy extends its understanding and its apologies to those who missed seeing a favorite face in this year’s feature."

I must have missed the memo that I was on another planet. Look at all the attention whores making statements to TMZ, Charlie, Charlie, and more Charlie, Spencer, Lilo and Feldman. It's a field day of "Look at me, don't forget me".

The word "occurred" is spelled with two r's.

What do you mean, "who?" Honestly, they shouldn't have left him out of the memorial porton.

No matter what the idiots posting above me think or say. Disrespectful freaks - and typical here.

It's sad he left out, but understandable.

I agree to some extent. Haim was in several movies. They could have given him a nod. The dead celeb segment seemed really short this year. I wonder who else they left out.

That's wrong. He should have been in it. He made alot of films. Making great films is not a requirement for getting in the In Memoriam at the Oscars. Hell, making great films is not a requirement for getting an Oscar period. And while 15 year olds may not know who he is, he was actually quite a big part of coming of age films in the 80s and fondly remembered by our generation. Look him up, tweenagers, if you don't know who he is. You'll find him in the same dictionary where you'll find the information about how your sad little Lady Gaga is just a knock off of the original Madonna.

yeah, it's a travesty. I thought the same thing, especially after I saw some AGENT up there. Seriously Academy, you should be ashamed.
