Though it seems like old news, there is still one person ticked off that Corey Haim was omitted from the Oscar's Memoriam video this year - Corey Feldman.
But listen…he actually brings up a good point.
In a recent interview about his fallen friend, Corey reflects on how the media had and has treated Haim's career and personal issues and brings up a parallel between him and Charlie Sheen. Though he doesn't call Charlie out on his issues, per say, he does insist that there is a double standard when it comes to celebrities. He explains:
"Well I have to be completely honest and say, I'm not a huge fan of Charlie Sheen. I don't make it my goal to ever talk badly in the press, we're all in it together, that's the way I look at it, but Charlie in particular, especially the way that he's affected other people that I know — point blank, Charlie and Corey started their careers pretty much together, and Corey fought for his entire life to recover from those early experiences and to get his life together."
And [he] eventually did so, and yet he was snubbed by all his peers on both of the award shows where he should have been honored. Whereas Charlie has lived a very parallel life, the only difference being is that he had a hit TV show.
But if you look at the body of work that Charlie has done, I guarantee you Corey has had more success than Charlie has in his film career. And yet, if Charlie were to die tomorrow, I guarantee you, he would be included in the memoriam. That's just something for people to think about."
It certainly is and to be honest, we think he is absolutely right. If Charlie were gone tomorrow, his career would warrant him loads of recognition, regardless of all the shenanigans he's pulling these days.
Still, we don't think the Oscars would include them in their tribute. Most likely the Emmys.
P.S. - Don't they look strangely similar???
