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."

here's a novel thought - AX the segment from the show and just POST the names/list on the academy website - that way if they omit someone, they can quickly UPDATE the list and not piss anyone off.

Don't worry Cory Feldman - you'll get left off the list too.

C'mon Feldman, what did Haim do lately? And aren't you forgetting that you could last little more than one season with him on "the two coreys"?

Why should Hollywood continue to idolize losers who act like spoiled brats then kill themselves? Feldman has gotten his life together, married well, and now he thinks Haim deserves kudos for his behavior?

Corey Haim died? I'm sorry I don't keep up with has beens and no-bodies. And who is angry? Some guy named Feldman? I thought he died after he did Young Frankenstein.

Corey Haim has been acting since the age of 9, and had over 30 movies under his belt. He has had a longer career in film than some of those shown last night. Not including him in the memorial was INEXCUSABLE, CLASSLESS and DISRESPECTFUL to his memory and to his loved ones. And to those of you who have bad things to say about him, Corey had a funeral packed with people who LOVED him. Who will be there, when you finally drop dead?! I know it might be hard for some of you, but try to show some RESPECT for the dead. Corey is still loved by many, including his family, and they do not deserve to have your tasteless comments posted. If you have nothing good to say, than STFU! RIP Corey. You will be LOVED and remembered forever. xoxoxox

Doesn't Corey Feldman know that they honor those past OSCAR WINNERS who have died in the previous year. Corey Haim never won an Oscar.

I didn't realize that until now. And yet, they put Ronni Chasen in there. The Academy is a bunch of stuffed shirts. They aren't relevant anymore. Using Anne Hathaway and James Franco as hosts was a desperate and failed attempt to appeal to a younger audience.
Cory Haim should have been honored. He had his demons, but we can't forget that it was Hollywood that destroyed him with it's pedophiles and drug pushers.

First off according to the autopsy report Corey Haim died from natural causes from pneumonia, a enlarged heart, and narrowed blood vessels. So I wish people would stop saying drugs killed him. And if I not mistaken last years oscar show had Micheal Jackson in their tribute but not Corey. I can see why the Wiz was a oscar worthy movie. The oscars only "tributes" the actors they like and "forget" or "overlook" the actors people cared about.

Yes, TMZ. Air this interview on your show today! Corey Haim DESERVED to be shown during the in memoriam. The Oscars need to be called out for that. It is so WRONG! People LOVE and care about Corey! I know your main priority is the ratings, so I agree with others, and think this would be a great interview to run today.
