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."

All these people saying "who?" are so full of it. Nobody believes you're little passive aggressive attempt at an insult.

Corey (whichever one died), does not deserve to be mentioned in the same breath as those that were honored at the Oscars. Most of those mentioned had distinguished careers. Hey and most did it without being disgusting druggies.

Adore is a little strong - however he was in several movies should be up there if a lot of those others that nobody knows are.

The oscars were trying to be YOUNG and HIP with their choices of the hosts, but didn't respect (young) Corey for a few seconds, which would have helped his loved ones to some extent since his early death. Shameful.
License to Drive still rules!!!!!

I think that just because his career was not as good as most, he deserved a nod. I worshiped Corey Haim in my teens. All the movies he was in made the teen movies, he was before cool was cool.. Corey came before the stupid hip hop and porn stars become actors, he could entertain and he had millions of fans. The academy appreciates "who's who" at the moment, Kim Kardashian could win a freaking Oscars these days, it's so ridiculous.

I'm sorry, Corey F. Corey H. friggin rocked and was a staple of my childhood movie experience. I was so sad when I heard he had passed. Still sad. Just because he got snubbed by these HWOOD peeps, doesn't mean he will be forgotten.

That is reserved to honor honorable actors. Corey your friend gave head on Santa Monica Blvd. so he could buy drugs.

He should not be honored.

Feldman is right. Corey Haim made good films in the 80's and he was a teen idol. He deserved 30 seconds of their time. Many of the old relics they show at the Academy Awards had less hits then he did. I thought it was about the acting, not personal lives. Lost Boys is still a good movie even today, so are License to Drive and Lucas. They also omitted Peter Graves from the memorial. Maybe they think Tom Cruise developed that himself. Oh wait, they don't like Tom either. Of course this is the same organization that bases awards on political issues and causes. At least it was made clear to them how awful a show they put on since there were 4 million viewers less than last year. James Franco was weird, always looking off to the side and acting bored. Well, he at least got the bored part right.

Isn't that the same lame excuse the Academy gave last year? If I remember correctly they left off a few very notable people from list then as well?
