The fact that Corey Haim was missing from the SAG awards "In Memoriam" montage didn't go unnoticed by Corey Feldman.
"We have become used to not being honored by our peers in the industry," the actor told the Hollywood Reporter of his pal, who died in March 2010 at age 38.
Feldman, who co-starred with Haim in "The Lost Boys," "License to Drive," and the TV series "The Two Coreys," said he hoped his friend would be shown some respect when the Oscars airs its memorial montage.
"I have faith that the Academy will make a wiser choice," he said.
According to SAG producer Kathy Connell, Haim had actually been included in a longer memorial package the show put together.
"This year we prepared a longer version in hopes of being able to salute more actors and a shorter version if it was needed due to time," she tells the Hollywood Reporter. "Mr. Haim was in the longer version. As the show was running long, we were forced to chose the shorter package. The Committee only wishes they had the time to salute everyone."
I love Corey feldman.
This is sad. People should get over themselves. Haim deserves to be honored. He may have had his issues during his life and throughout his career but there is not a single person who didnt love at least one of his movies, and you say you didnt, youre lying. Haim was an amazing, talented actor and deserves as much memorial as the others. I got a corey haim tribute tattoo to honor him in my own way. Such an amazing man, and such a sad lose, even now a year later. Rip haimster. We love and miss you!
You people ALL suck......you are all sooooo good on the inside. Let me remind you that you are not all perfect.
If Feldman had his wits about himself and gave a crap-ola the his lover, Ham would be alive. FELDMAN KILLED HAM!
hey Feldman. Its your fault Ham is dead. Why dont you go join him yaPHUCKING little punk. You are a washed up has been.
Hey, celebutard, keep yelling 'til someone pays attention. Who CARES!
Who? Why? HAHAHAHA
When God wants to be cruel he creates one of these losers.
bulls#it hollywood is so corrupt. you bunch of ass clowns....i cant wait for california to drop off in the ocean
15 minutes are up.
Who is Corey Haim? Was he important? Did he have a long-lasting positive effect on the world?
Corey Feldman is right- they were both so talented and unrecognized. RIP, Corey Haim. Corey Feldman should be cast in more films- he has the looks and talent. I loved the Two Coreys. Lost Boys 3 was much better than Lost Boys 2, it was truer to the original Lost Boys, a classic. Corey was great in all 3 films.
ummmm... he wasn't really memory worthy...
There's a part of Corey Feldman that is totally elated that Haim has passed, because it gives him a shred more relevance. When the media gets wind of a Haim-related story, guess who their go-to guy is...Feldman. As quickly as he can, Feldman says what he needs to say to make it about him as well. Look at his first sentence above...it starts with the word "we," which puts him in the same boat as Haim, which serves as a nice transition so that he can then make it about him rather than Haim.
You'll never hear a story about Feldman from this day forward that's wasn't initiated by something regarding Haim; Feldman just isn't relevant anymore.
If Haim hadn't done "The Two Coreys" he might've been more highly regarded in the industry. By appearing in a non-union "reality" show, he and Feldman were spitting in the face of SAG and other actors who have been unable to get work because of the glut of reality programming. Also, that show made Haim's mental state public knowledge. He was a drug addict because of his personality disorder, which remained even after he stopped using. I don't blame SAG for over-looking him. Of course, omitting Farah Fawcett last year was a terrible oversight and hardly comparable.
YOU all being rude need to shut your mouths and show some respect for the dead he was a good man and a good friend and he is greatly missed by his peers
You are a worse actor than HamBone ever dreamed of being. A flat busted broke talentless pathetic LOSER!
Screw you Feldman ya little punk. Why dont you go down to the gym and pump mens rearends or clean some toilets or something. Do something with yourself ya pathetic wretch. Perhaps you could visit the cemetery where HamBone is lying and do the moonwalk on his grave...ya blockhead.
Farrah Fawcett was left out of the Oscar memorial tribute last year, yet it was important to include Michael Jackson.
This wonderful actor left out of the shorter version?? Who the hell is Kathy to determine who's in the memorial and who isn't....
What can you expect from the snobs at the SAG? Corey Haim meant something to a lot of people of his generation. He may not have been an Olivier or Anthony Hopkins, but he was quirky and funny and deserved some recognition for his contributions to the movie industry.
I don't know who this Rachel person is that so many people are referring to in this forum. However, @ Mastermind, I take offense to you saying Rachel must be black. I don't know how race plays a role in someone being bitter?!
In any case, I am black and I LOVE Corey Haim! Corey, your true fans will LOVE you forever. RIP. xoxox
I know the Corey's are not going to be remembered as "serious" actors but HOLY CRAP does nobody remember the 80's? They were in everything. The two of them were huge... like New Kids on the Block. They should get more respect if only for being so important for those few years that they were.
it figures..they forget a lot of people. I remember that awards show after Heath passed away, no one mentioned him all night until Daniel Day Lewis accepted his award and gave recognition for Heath and his talent. Hollywood is weird like that..
Don't tell me they couldn't cut in a quick shot of him somewhere. Shame on you SAG.
Corey deserved to be remembered, I noticed it & was upset regarding this... It is rather BS to use the "running out of time" excuse then release it on youtube for those who want to view the longer version or put it on the SAG Website THAT is only fair
Corey had talent, he wasn't perfect but he was a human being who deserves respect...
Don't they realize they were both dead to most people 20 years ago? I think they were included in the SAG memorial when they were 16.
He was and always will be a great guy ! We will miss him.
Surely they will do something for him at the Oscars. My generation grew up with him. ALL of his movies were pretty good. Plus everyone said he was an incredibly nice guy. I loved The Lost Boys. He will be missed. IF there is a heaven i hope he is sup there right now having a good old time. Smiling his wonderful smile and being young again.
Both of them eat they own doo doo.
Did Charlie Sheen wanted to commit suicide ? Details here: moviesfan.eu/news/item/303-did-charlie-sheen-wanted-to-commit-suicide-?
Poor Corey. He was a troubled soul. He was an actor, who worked in the industry, he should have been acknowledged. I say make the montage shorter to include everyone who passed away.
That is the most disgusting excuse I have ever heard. We didn't have time. I'm embarrassed for your mother. I guess you were out of the room when she was teaching you respect. Shame on you.
Clean or not that has nothing to do with him being honored. A third of the actors now and then have or has had a drug problem. He should have been honored period. If they left him out because of his addiction then they need to stop the memorial completely, because if that was the case, no one is clean in Hollywood their entire career.
That show runs long anyway. So what's the problem? If they really need to cut some time, cut it from the neverending blatherings of the award winners when they have to thank everyone including their dog Poofy. How much longer could the so-called 'long version' have been? Are we talking 2 minutes? Or are we talking 20? I doubt we ever hear how much time the long version would have added, because it would destroy their argument.
What a lousy excuse.
@Edward what church do you go to..lol? That's must be one scary church. Anyway some funny comments on here as usual.
Rachel must be black. You can always tell a bitter black woman. She had nothing good to say about any of the blogs she was on. D@mn it must be sad living a life where you are so unhappy, negative and hateful of everyone. Jeezes you should kill yourself so that way those around you would enjoy their lives and don't have to be depressed and disgusted to be in your present..lol. Here come Rachel sad sack and her bitter self that steals people joy..lol
Timing issues is a joke. These award shows have been going on for decades, they almost always run over time. I think you could cut a little less time for the actors thanking their dog groomers and give a little more time to those actors we lost this year. There shouldn't be a "short version"
What a bunch of B.S. Looks like some industry bigwigs are still trying to punish Corey Haim for not being politically correct with his troubles like Charlie Sheen and the rest of the Hollywood Lowlifes.
What a shame they dissed Lukas. Like everyone else.
He still has some great work out there. He was a big part of my growing up and I will certainly remember him for that.
@RANDA: Exactly!!!!!!!! He was an actor and SAG card holder! Sure, maybe he didn't act in many movies right before his death, but he had acted in just the past couple years, and his death was of Pneumonia PER THE CORONER!!! Timing issues is going to be their excuse?! Please! Would have taken them all of ONE SECOND! to show his picture! Lame excuse SAG, you suck and lost respect for you with this decision! He also was one of the most recognized people who lost their life last year AND at such a young age. His death his tragic, just like your omit of him as well!
Huge fan, wish I couldve partied with him
If they can't show all the actors who passed away because of time, then don't do any of them.
Ryan O'neill was the only one upset about Farrah. She's before my time, can't think of anything significant. Were talking about Haim yo
Such ugly comments from such trolls......Corey Haim was a great actor. His movies are still relevant and fun to watch today, regardless of what year they were made. Other actors may not take a moment to acknowledge him, but his memory lives on in the rest of us. You know, us, the public, the people who really count! We all watched his movies growing up and we still remember him quite fondly. As for Corey Feldman, I'm not sure why he has chosen not to make more movies, because I think he should for my own selfish reasons. Perhaps he's seen too much of the ugly side of Hollywood to participate anymore.
If I want to find some mean spirited judgmental people I don't need to go to church, all I have to do is read CNN message boards. People sure are quick to call people loosers and wish them harm or death. Perhaps if people weren't so judgmental and had a little compassion people with drug and alcohol problems might get the help they need instead of being tossed aside as worthless by people who have no right to judge.
I agree!!!! RIP Corey. xoxoxo
Grew up to. He was a pimp, and it cursed him. No one could imagine his life
I grew to his movies, and thought he was cool as hell. I was rooting for him all the way. Miss you buddy.
Look at the Cory's still trying hard to recreate what has never been created.
Corey was a kid actor and a nobody since 1985.... Sorry kid.
Need to get your facts right....Corey Haim's biggest movies were from 1987-1989!! (NOT 1985 as you said!) AND he had been acting into the 90s as well, sorry you missed his movies! What a talented actor, and such a sad loss.
B=Dog is right on this one although he should have stressed more on what a loser Cory was.
Corey Haim was a nobody, and so I Corey Feldman. Not sure why his opinion even matters. Neither had done anything significant for years, and nothing that was ever academy or award worthy. Don't hold your breath, Corey 2, I don't think you'll be seeing any tribute at the Oscars either.
You ever acted in a movie, or done anything of note that millions of people have seen world wide?
Not that I liked their movies, quite frankly I thought they were terrible,, but come on at least look at yourself before you write an opinion like that of another.
"Neither had done anything significant for years, and nothing that was ever academy or award worthy." Really? The Lost Boys: the performance earned Haim another Young Artist Award nomination, as Best Young Male Superstar in a Motion Picture. Also Stand By Me: Golden Globe Award for Best Motion Picture – Drama, Golden Globe Award for Best Director (Rob Reiner), Academy Award for Writing Adapted Screenplay (Raynold Gideon & Bruce A. Evans), WGA Award for Best Screenplay Based on Material from Another Medium (Raynold Gideon & Bruce A. Evans), Directors Guild of America Award for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Motion Pictures (Rob Reiner)
Yeah. That tells you stupid rachel.
Pauly Shore will also be left out when he dies. This was a memoriam to remember ACTORS!
So what if he was a fuddgepacker ?
I think Rachel is cool. You tell it like it is soul sister.
Where are Corey's lips???
Between his legs.... I'll be here all night. Be sure to tip your waitresses...
"Gone!" like his movie career
RACHEL I STILL LOVE YOU LETS GET BACK TOGETHER AND HAVE CHILDREN.
Hollywood uses up and spits out these child actors.. The entertainment industry has the character of any other pimp on the street.
Feldman also asked publicly, "WHere were all those people saying nice things about him when he needed them?" And I thought at the time, "That would include YOU, ya chump." These were two dum-dums who squandered what they had. They made a couple of decent flicks, but overall they did complete garbage. Feldman is really only good for camp value now. They were hardly ARTISTES.
First, learn to spell. Thanks! Secondly, they are both artists, just artists that you obviously have chosen not to like. To each their own!
he was just a little bit of a moron....just a little bit.....I think his drug use at least gave him an edge....this does not.
You know this story is getting old, yes I can understand how the friends and loved ones feel, but it seems like every year someone who passed away gets overlooked by one of the dozens upon dozens of various award shows that are out there.
Don't worry Corey. You will always be remebered in my book for those horrible, crap movies you made way back when.
Hahaha, you're funny. NOT!
You jabve zero idea of what Corey meant to some of us. I only wish that he had known. You're comment meand nothing...you could only wish to be half the man he was.
Don't count on the Oscars, Corey. They left out Farrah Fawcett in '09. I think they should do away with the whole "In Memoriam" part of the program because someone is always left out. The fact that they choose to recognize someone who is more popular than someone who is less popular is an insult. Just don't do the memorial part of it.
I agree, if they can't include everyone who was a SAG member and died in the past year, it looks like they pick and choose based on criteria other than a "time issue," and then blame it on a "time issue." It looks poorly planned and half-@ssed, just not polished or professional.
I'm in SAG; do you have any idea how many members die each year? Dozens and dozens, the only criterion (not "criteria") necessary to make it other than membership itself is recognizability. There are over 100,000 SAG members - 99.9% with whom you aren't familiar - or never even seen.
Amen to that, I rather they do show it all on-line, because I can recall the complaints that the Acadmey received after the Farrah Fawcett non-mentioning in '09.
Why is that so terrible? The entertainment is all about popularity, anyway. If it was really about "honor" and "the work," the creative arts awards shows would be televised during awards season. Any why would he think that everyone who has ever acted should be shown honor? * him.
Why should anybody show Haim respect? It's not like he was some kind of film legend or that he contributed anything positive to his industry. Of all people. Feldman should know that. The last time Haim was on television, on "The Two Coreys", it was a sad and humiliating exploitation of an ex-actor's emotional and physical collapse. Feldman played a role in that exploitation by agreeing to appear on the program with Haim and attach his name to it. As a human being, I am saddened by what happened to Corey Haim, and I can empathize with Feldman's loyalty to his dead friend. But that's as far it goes. SAG wasn't obligated to honor Haim and Feldman is probably the only person on the planet who missed it.
Just so Ya'll are reminded! Corey was Clean at the time of his death. He was living with his Mom taking care of her. She has cancer. He died from Pneumonia and Heart issues. there were NO DRUGS found in his system!!! He is Dead and that is sad. They should give props where props are due. I was a teenager in the 80's and some of my favs were LUCAS, Dream a little Dream, Lost Boys. He had a pretty big impact on 80's movies and should be respected for that. Robert Downey Jr. was a "Druggie" and what not and he finally got it right.. Corey was trying to do the same.
Haim's death can obviously be attributed to his drug use and generally poor state of health. He abused his body continuously for almost 20 years. That's doesn't go away. More than his drug problem, Haim suffered with a severe personality disorder. That's why he couldn't get work, even after he had discontinued his drug use.
The coroner said drugs didn't significantly contribute to his death, he did not say drugs were not present. The guy had obtained hundreds of pills in the months before his death by going into walk-in clinics and emergency rooms with various complaints, and he'd supposedly been clean for "2 weeks" prior to his death, certainly not clean by any means, and withdrawal could have been a contributing factore. He was not clean, and he committed suicide by abusing his body with drugs for decades. It's sad, but it was not shocking, and two weeks doesn't mean he was clean.
Oh, and it's y'all, not Ya'll. Non-southerners should refrain from using the term.
Kasey, are you serious? You're proudly (and arrogantly) demanding that non-Southerners refrain from using that most-trailer trashy of idioms? Also, Texans use the same expression, so it's not just relegated to the less-educated of the South - those in the Southwest get to use it, too!
Enlighten us, John. How is y'all the most trailer trashy of idioms. I am very interested in where you gained this level of insight.
Hey guess what John, word on the street is that Texas is, now don't tell anyone, in the Souf.
This demonstrates just how mean and heinous some people can be. The solution here is simple – run the longer montage on the website for the show. As for the mean comments – shame on you people. Drug addiction is like any addiction – we all have our demons. I live in a place were people get addicted to God – and heaven help 'em there the most imperfect human beings there are – they constantly wag the finger and preach the good word to others – but like drug addicts – it's not their fault. Corey Haim was trying to turn his life around – he just couldn't. Some people aren't blessed with strong, loving family and friends around them. Corey Feldman had issues too – and he's trying to overcome them. Many of us do. Let he who is the most perfect step forward – and that won't include me – that's for sure.
Amen to that. Religion is worse than a drug. We have been brainwashed into thinking that the imaginary guy in the sky is gonna take care of everything, I've been preaching it as an elder for the Jehovah's witnesses for years. Drugs are addicting, it's an epidemic
Brittany Murphy was also left out of the shorter version.
Brittany died in Dec 2009. She was included in the In Memoriam last year.
...but will they remember Charlie Sheen next year?
good one! you could write for ricky gervais
THEY WOOD ONLY REMEMBER HIM AT THE SAG AWARDS IF IT STOOD FOR SAD ACTORS GUILD
They WOOD?? Really? I wonder what WOULD have happened had you paid attention in school to learn proper grammer.
Sorry, honey, it's "grammar."
Sorry, it's actually spelling.
You're all terrible.
Really funny that you would correct him and then make an error. That's called irony. Or maybe it's eyeroni.
HUGE LOLs @ UFC junk....
a brain bashed, no mor working neurons ufc iTard attempting to tell others their grammar sucks all the while, using bad spelling and grammar to express those thoughts...
what a typical ufc iTarded, calliflower ear of a joke this guy is!
"or wood you rather be a mule..."
Hey you dang woodchucks, quit chucking my wood!
That's cauliflower ear.
@UFC Junkie – Hahaha! I love it when one moron attempts to correct another moron.
He uses "wood" because he's talking about what the dead Cory's brain is made of.
He did have addictions throughout his life. I have seen many memorials that included people that passed away following years of addiction. The show just had timing issues. My kids grew up with both Coreys. My grandchildren love those movies also. Corey Haim is not forgotten and continues to have fans of his work.
The two Cory's was replaced by the "worlds hottest retard"
Did he pay his SAG union dues? If yes. He should've been included.
who was upset about whom?
This Cory will replace Gary Coleman as the current freak show.
Are you serious Rachel?????Ah so because he had demons, we shouldnt recognize that he was an actor who made films and entertained a lot of us? Give me a break. He deserves a nod just as much as anyone else. And I hate to break the news to you Rachel.... Everyone has issues...some just hide it better than others. By your thinking, nobody should care for anyone. You and people who think like you are the true lower class of society. GROW UP!!!!!
Sounds like someone needs to get off their high horse and realize that even though he did something you don't approve of, he's still a person and was a member of SAG, so it's pretty lame they left him out. Same for them leaving out Farrah Faucet last year...
I would have to agree with Chris on this one....apparently Rachel is perfect and without flaws. And she has no empathy or compassion for other human beings who struggle with hardships in life. River Phoenix, Heath Ledger and Brad Renfro all died from drug overdoses, and they were all wonderfully talented. I would never consider them losers! I choose to remember Corey Haim in a wonderful film called "Lucas" from 1986. What a great film and he was a sweetheart. RIP Corey!
RACHEL...AND YOU'RE PERFECT?
GEEZ, SOMEONE NEEDS AN EDUCATION IN LIFE AND REALITY.
Looser huh? As in not tighter but looser? Well, it is pretty clear who the looser of the spelling bee would be.
I'm just curious – what is your opinion of Charlie Sheen? I hear his show is a hit.
LOL, UFC Junkie!!!
I've gotta agree with Rachel. I'd go a step further and say that all of these Hollywood award shows are a waste. I think it's fairly pathetic when more people can name who won the Best Picture Oscar last year than who won the Nobel Peace Prize. Award shows are just a bunch of overpaid, pretty, plastic people patting themselves on the backs for playing fictional characters. Their sole contribution to this world is entertainment value, and when they go over the edge with drugs, we're expected to salute them? I'm sorry, but I don't think that's a lifestyle worth honoring.
A lot of people don't just take drugs for the h#ll of it. Many people have underlying issues and mental conditions that drive them to abuse. Not to mention, when you combine prior issues with fame, that can have disastrous effects. Live in the shoes he did first and then get back to me with your opinion.
He had an illness Rachel, and it seems you are either not intelligent enough or maybe empathetic enough to be able to recognize that. Many individuals who suffer from one or in most cases, more than one form of mental illness self medicate. Thia is a fact, and not an excuse. You would not fault someone who was suffering from another illness for their disease, so I am not really sure why people do when it comes to mental illness and addiction. He was very ill. What is your excuse? The awards show and memorial tribute is there to honor artist, which he was. Everyone has their own issues and skeletons in their closets. I find in most cases the ones who are the most judgmental such as yourself have the most to hide. It's called self loathing. Maybe you yourself should seek some professional help for that, because it's very sad. ~Voice of Reason
rachel, You are a loser. End of story.
Well, I lot of people care Rachel. Corey Haim gave me and many others pleasure with his wonderful acting in films such as: Lucas, The Silver Bullet, The Lost Boys and License to Drive. I only wish he had chosen, or been able, to travel a different path in life; such a wonderful talent wasted to drugs. It appears you do not realize that drug addiction is a disease that is extremely difficult to overcome. Hence, your flippant statement. People such as yourself don't anger me; there is no place for anger when dealing with ignorance. Educate yourself, or develop some real emotions, then come back and make an intelligent comment.
Unanimous in this. Go Kittyhawk !!!
what a conversation. everybody correcting each other's errors. if you were all in the same room, there'd be a lot of slappin' goin' on...
Even though you are a glutton and show no control over your eating habits, I still don't wish that you'd pass away. Haim used drugs much like you use food – to fill some void he had in his life. Sad but true. Oh, and in another post you said he was a "looser." Classic. Insult somebody and not know how to spell. You am smart.
Corey Haim is loved by MANY people. You're a sick, pathetic waste of life, Rachel.
I agree with Kitthawk AND Amy.
Just read your posts. You know, it would help your cause a bit if you showed the slightest bit on intelligence by learning how to spell simple words and punctuate even simpler sentences. As it is, by what you say and how you say it, you just look like the idIot you apparently are.
For Lucas alone, Corey Haim should have been honored. Despite the troubles he may have had in his personal life he was a talented man who made some fine contributions to the film industry.
Rachel, crawl back under the rock you came out of. Your kind aren't respected or wanted in the real world. You're disgusting.
Rachel, it's amazing how much negative energy you're putting into your illiterate posts. Why is that? A secret crush on the Corey Haim? Something is up with you - and whatever it is it's kind of scary.
Which one of them stole your girlfriend?
You idiot, Corey HAIM, NOT "HAMM": (as you said!) IS the one who died you insensitive jerk! Get a life loser!
I agree, with that statement.
Shut up, loser.
Did "Farrah Faucet" run how or cold?
