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."

They are truly shallow people possibly without any true friends. I know it was an awards show, but where is the Human side of it?? Not only for Corey Haim but for the other's that have brought joy to someones life. Why couldn't they taking a moment to say "Good Job"?

Why don’t we call the Oscars out on their blatant disrespect? We can post our comments here on their website (link below). It most likely won’t change anything, but after a stunt like that, they should hear what we have to say.

Corey Haim was an icon for a bit to my generation, he was in Lost Boys, anyone that's 30 will agree it's a cult classic, same for license to drive. Lucas wasn't so bad either.

Honestly though, who really cares about the Oscars, the movies nominated are always crap movies that nobody cares about.

It's sad what happened to Corey, he was HUGE as a kid, same as River Phoenix, it never turns out good. I definitely wanted to be as cool as Haim back when I was 12.
