First Corey Haim was left out of the SAG awards' "In Memoriam" montage, and now he's been omitted by the Oscars too.
During last night's remembrance reel of movie industry greats who have passed away in the past year, "The Lost Boys" star, who was 38 when he died of pneumonia and a heart condition in March 2010, was missing.
As Marquee previously reported, Haim's pal Corey Feldman was furious that Haim wasn't included in the SAG awards tribute in January and took the organization to task at the time.
"We have become used to not being honored by our peers in the industry," Feldman told the Hollywood Reporter. "I have faith that the Academy will make a wiser choice."
Unfortunately, that didn't happen.
While a SAG awards producer claimed Haim had been part of a longer memorial package that didn't make it to air, the Academy Awards has not yet commented on the snub. Feldman also has yet to weigh in.
Haim isn't the only star who didn't get the "In Memoriam" treatment at the Oscars: Actress Betty Garrett, who starred in film classics like "On the Town" and "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" and was a regular on the '70s sitcoms "All in the Family" and "Laverne & Shirley," also failed to make the cut, as well as "Airplane!" star Peter Graves and "Last Tango in Paris" actress Maria Schneider.
