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."
