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 like how they include ronnie chassen who was only a publicist and not corey haim an actor. i say this, if you don't have the time to include everyone then don't have that part of the program at all.

shut the fck up Feldman. the two of you have no talent and long gone and forgotten. the effin Lost Boys ? i havn't seen that one on Turner Classic Movies lately. As a matter of fact no network repeats that garbage. Go buy another hat and sunglasses and hide behind what you did 30 effin years ago.
go snort another line and cry like the little pusssy you really are over your dead drug addled friend. the title "The Lost Boys" seems so appropriate asshoole.

If Oscar was a 5 hour ceremony...
If they put all the movie and tv
people who died in the "In Memoriam" ,
Celine would sing "Smile" over 10 times.

Get a grip, people!
Oscar ran over 3 1/2 hours as is.

It is very sad that they left him out of the Memorium. No matter what, Corey had a number of very good movies during his career and regardless as to his personal problems he was an actor who contributed and he should not have been overlooked. They certainly took the time to recognize people most of us had never even heard of, so I don't think it would have been difficult to include him as well. I feel very sorry for his family, and I hope that they know that his fans are very upset about the snub and will always remember Corey at his best!!

Didn't they leave out Brittany Murphy last year? They're always leaving out someone.

A fraction of a fraction of the population is fortunate to achieve the status and wealth of these guys, and they blow it all by abusing drugs, flaunting the law, abusing all other beings (Human and Animal ie. Mr. Vicks)Generally taking advantage of the rest of us; the stories go on and on; I can't feel sorry for them. Let it be a leson to them all. We should all be a little Amish and shun them.
