Corey Feldman Furious That Corey Haim Was Snubbed From Oscars In Memoriam Segment

corey feldman pissed that corey haim was snubbed from oscars memoriam

Looks like we're hearing quite a bit from Corey Feldman lately.

Yesterday, we heard the positive news that Feldman has got some more work on the horizon, and now we're hearing some less-than-positive reports that he's pissed because Corey Haim was snubbed from the Oscars' In Memoriam segment.

Here's what Feldman had to say about it:

"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."

Here's a statement that the Academy sent out in response:

"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."

We understand that they won't be able to fit everyone into each year's In Memoriam, but they could have given Corey a place on there. He was a well known talent who died way before his time, and it would have been nice for him to be included.

Thoughts???

    I felt the same way about Brad Renfro when he died and they snubbed him. He hadn't made a film in a long time, but he was also a very talented guy who died before his time. Very sad.
    I hate the way they're doing the memoriam montage now, I liked it much more when there were short clips of the actors in a great scene, one last look at the camera.

    I believe Corey died right before last year's Oscar telecast and similar grievances were aired publicly. The Academy made a statement that the In Memoriam was strictly for the calendar year of 2009 and that Corey would appear in the 2010 In Memoriam. So someone, somewhere, made the decision to drop him from the list. It's pretty crappy policy to say you will and then don't. Every year, the audience has to sit through faces that no one knows and haven't worked in Hollywood for 40 or 50 years but when someone young and perhaps controversial goes, they just conveniently forget? There's more to this

    very true what feldman said.



  4. 4

    "Looks like we're hearing quite a bit from Corey Feldman lately." He's got nothing else to do but bitch! Don't give him the platform to rant!



  5. 5

    Given that the show is televised to bring the show to the masses, maybe they should consider what the masses want to see. For me, that is a chance to say goodbye to the people who entertained me. Personally, they should leave out a couple of the agents and add in the people that WE recognize. It is a crime that they left out Corey Haim and Eddie Fisher this year. The Academy should issue an apology immediately. If they had time to give us James Franco in drag, they had time to include these people.



  6. 6

    Who cares? He wasn't all that deserving of being included. It doesn't make him less of a person, just less of a Hollywood player.

    he def should have been a part…. he was my childhood crush… along with every other girl iknow… its sad… he was a good person for sure… drugs are evil… i know many people dead or ruined their lives from that horrible black demon addiction… his face will never be forgotten



  8. 8

    He's upset because he was hoping to promote his new show "One Corey"



  9. 9

    I'm furious that Haim wasn't included in the Memoriam segment and I just don't buy the time constraints thing because there's plenty of time for lame skits and lengthy speeches of hot air at these kind of events.

    FYI, he WAS included in the BAFTAs a few weeks ago (British Academy of Film & Television Awards) and their segment is shorter I believe. I actually emailed them and thanked them and I got a reply from the assistant to the CEO, saying "Many thanks for your comments regarding Corey Haim, which are much appreciated. We felt it important to show that people in the industry, as in any walk of life, can pass away at any time, as demonstrated by Corey, whose death was at such a young age." It's a crying shame the country he made his career in and earned the industry so much cash, can't be bothered to remember him.

    It is ridiculous that some posters believe that only those they "recognize" should be honoured at this events. Probably one of the reasons that so many actors have inflated egos is because main stream audiences think their talents are the only ones that matter. So you don't know who that writer, producer or director is but maybe you have loved something they've done. I love seeing old actors in the section, even if I haven't seen their movies. It should be that way because they died of old age, with a solid career out of the media spotlight. So should Elizabeth Taylor, Zsa Zsa, and other "old" actors be ommitted because younger generations haven't seen their work? Instead they should have an In Memoriam portion and then a "Overdose" section for the ones who want to see all the young actors who partied too hard and died from it.



  11. 11

    People at the Academy are a bunch of idiots… They would rather make us watch James Franco in drag than give a few seconds of respect to dead artists.



  12. 12

    With so many passings this year, the Academy should have done what the Grammys did this year and two people on at once. At least that way they would have been able to honor more people such as Haim.



  13. 13

    snubbed again!?!? ridiculous… Corey Haim was worthy of a mention - even if he had some personal problems towards the end of his life.



  14. 14

    Perez, you're an idiot. You can't say that you "understand" that they don't have room/time for everyone, and then say that they could have fit Corey in there. No doubt everyone feels the same way about those who were left out. They had the space and time that they had, period. Why are you such a moron?



  15. 15

    WAAAAAAHHHHH!!!! Oh give me a fucking break. The guy is totally irrelevant to today and was never once nominated for any sort of a prestigious award. They can't get everyone in there, and someone like Corey Haim definitely is not worthy of a slot in the Academy Award memorial!!! His direct-to-video collection doesn't exactly merit him as a Hollywood icon.



  16. 16

    Why is this kid still talking? Is he even relevant in Hollywood anymore? Oh, that's it! That's how he keeps us from forgetting him. He just keeps opening his pie hole, but he doesn't realize we don't give a crap about what he has to say….



  17. 17

    He's right! Haim's movies and Feldmans were great. They were hot child stars who made movies that people love. Why leave Corey Haim out? They shouldn't have.



  18. 18

    Re: stubborn_beauty – Get your facts straight before making your ignorant comments! Corey has been acting since he was 9 years old. He has acted in over 30 movies, and was nominated for 5 Young Artist Awards, of which he won 2; not to mention the 3 Saturn Award nominations he received. What have you done with your pathetic life?! Don't forget, he had a funeral packed with people who loved him. Who will be there when you eventually drop dead?! Try to show some respect for the dead. Btw, he was sober, and took care of his cancer stricken mother before his death of pneumonia. The film industry made millions off of him. The least they could have done was show his face for a few seconds. You, hollyweird and all the others who have nothing good to say, can go and f**k off! Corey, you will be LOVED and remembered forever. xoxoxox



  19. 19

    I'm 31 and I remember having posters of Haim when I was young. He deserved a mention, maybe they should just make this segment a little longer in the future. I think that a lot of the time when they are remembered in that segment, it has to mean something to the family left behind, the Academy is recognizing the work their loved ones did.



  20. 20

    somebody ALWAYS GETS LEFT OUT. wasn't Bea Arthur left out last year? and the reason was that she was known more for TV? Look at a Newspaper towards the end of the year, most have a section 'those who we lost this year' or somehting along that line. It includes people from politics, the arts, hollywood and famous local people. It is a BIG SECTION, at least in my local papers. Someone is ALWAYS GOING TO GET PISSED. Besides, this gives Feldman AIRTIME. He was probably PRAYING to whatever he prays to, that Haim would be left out.



  21. 21

    MOST OF THE SEGMENT WAS OF PRODUCTION MEMBERS WHO DIED, THEY SHOULD HAD BEEN CUT TO MAKE ROOM FOR LONGER PAUSES ON ACTORS AND DIRECTORS AND OF COURSE FOR COREY HAIM! ugh!



  22. 22

    Who the hell is Corey Feldman???



  23. 23

    "Corey dedicated his life to the film industry." Unfortunately this is not true. What is true is that he dedicated his life to drugs, and the drugs killed him. That is the shame, not his exclusion by the Academy.



  24. 24

    The excluded Farrah Fawcett, who was more acclaimed in films than Corey Haim. Not surprised. There are bigger problems in the world to worry about.



  25. 25

    I'm not a huge fan of Haim…. but he'd done more than plenty be recognized. Feldman is right.



  26. 26

    Fuck the academy on this. The guy had his demons in regard to his personal life, sure, but his movies were pretty damn big. They could certainly make room if they ditched some of the stupid song and dance shtick.

    If they have room for some dude who did cinematography back in 1935, they can acknowledge Corey Haim.

    To the powers that be who made this decision? Go shit yourselves.



  27. 27

    For Carey Haim's work and the impact of it he deserved to be included in the memoriam. It was a poor decision not to.



  28. 28

    Irrelevant however: To those above who quoted he died of drugs (and think that's a reasonable deciding factor in his exclusion) … i believe he died of pneumonia - check it.



  29. 29

    COEY HAIM WAS A JUNKIE. EVERYONE HATES JUNKIES, THEY ARE LOWLIFES



  30. 30

    I remember taking my young daughter to see Corey in, 'License to Drive'.
    Good memories. That movie was soooo funny.
    -
    It's crap that Corey wasn't included.
    Eddie Fisher (he did movies long ago) and Rue McClanahan of Golden Girls was also left out.
    An extra 7 seconds for each couldn't be found?
    -
    It just goes to show you how political the Academy is…small shitty people to decide not give their families an honored recognition of their loved ones.

    Celine did a magnificent job singing, "Smile".
    It brought tears, as always.
    Celine never looked more beautiful…she looked flawless.
    Celine is a star!



  31. 31

    Awwww, :( Corey wasn't THAT well known and honestly had not worked in a long time. His movies weren't that impactful either, tbh



  32. 32

    TEAM FELDMAN!!!!!



  33. 33

    I feel Hollywood wants to forget about the 1980s. Just how I see it. Feldman and Haim were huge back then, regardless of if their films are withstanding. Mickey Rourke had drug problems, and they brought him back because Hollywood needs tough guys that they DONT have. So whats the difference? Tell Rothschild, Oppenheimer, Harriman, Goldman Sachs and all the other real owners of the studios to get over themselves, because they are running thin on good work and the people know it!



  34. 34

    so wrong, such snobs

  35. @v@ says – reply to this


    35

    I agree with Feldman. The two Coreys were pretty large in the day, and Hollywood targeted their demographic and made huge money from them before they spit them out and then disregarded come Oscar memoriam time.



  36. 36

    Re: @v@ – Damn Straight @v@! Now let's go watch Lucas>Goonies back to back..



  37. 37

    Re: CIHFAN – let me repeat, WWWAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!! Was he nominated for an Oscar before? No. The people represented in the Oscar memorial are those who were involved in the film industry and gained respect for acting, directing and writing, etc. Corey did NONE OF THE ABOVE that garnered ANY of the Academy's attention. Just because he was a celebrity that passed away does NOT mean that he should get honoured within this memorial.



  38. 38

    Re: CIHFAN – Oh and btw just because he had a large gathering of people at his funeral really doesn't make a difference to the Academy. In no way would his face ever have made it up there next to the likes of Leslie Nielsen and Tony Curtis. Get real. Oh and also, in my 'pathetic life' I've earned a Bachelor's Degree with Honours in Communications and Film Studies, have a full time 6 figure salaried job, I'm engaged, own a home, and have a wonderful dog. All before the age of 22. Jealous, bitch? :)

    Re: stubborn_beauty – You really are stubborn, aren’t you?! You obviously do NOT know anything about Corey. Corey also had production AND directing experience. The film industry made MILLIONS off of him, the least they can do is honor him for 2 damn seconds. Why don’t you do your research before making yourself look so stupid and malicious?! I mean really…taking jabs at a dead person! YUCK – very disgusting! Despite your BA degree, 6 figure salary, and fiancé, you must be a real sorry low life!!! BTW, I have a BA degree, a great paying job at a great company, married to a wonderful man for over a decade, own an apt in the most expensive neighborhood in Manhattan, own a weekend/country house, and a house in Europe. I also have lots of loving friends. So, trust me, I have absolutely nothing to be jealous of, over a low life like you! Biatch! I'll just have to pray for you, and all the other low lives that exist in this world.



  41. 41

    yeah he really should have, even though he hasn't been in anything big lately…he is well known and has been in several famous movies. I love The Lost Boys

    This totally blows. Corey Haim should have been mentioned!! Sometimes I don't even know the people they do mention! Like Actors/Actress' from the 1950's and whatnot. I am not saying they should not be mentioned … but ALSO mention these actors that so many people love and are going to miss. I mean… wtf?



  43. 43

    We need to call the Oscars out on their blatant disrespect to Corey Haim! We can post our comments on their website (email address below). Even if it is just a few words, like “Shame on your Oscars for not including Corey Haim.” Can you imagine, if it gets out in the press that Corey Haim fans crashed the Oscars website, with their many emails?!! That would be so cool!!! It only takes a few seconds of your time. But it can do so much. We have the POWER to have our voices heard, and to make a difference. Those phonies need to know that they cannot get away with what they did. Corey’s family and loved ones deserve better.

    Re: stubborn_beauty – Btw, those idiots at the Oscars who you defend so much, also had the nerve to honor Leni Riefenstahl, a Nazi filmmaker in their memoriam, back in 2004. Yea, they only honor the “most respected” in the industry?! You and they are full of BS!!!
