I found this interview with Corey Feldman interesting…

Feldman was interviewed by Moviefone, and they got on the topic about the late Corey Haim getting snubbed in both the Oscars memoriam, and the SAG Awards memoriam this year. Then Charlie Sheen was brought up, and Feldman explained that Sheen and Haim started out in their careers at the same time. They were even both cast members in “Lucas” (1986)…
Feldman said he thought that Haim deserved to be in the memoriam because he had notable movie roles at one time. Feldman made a point that if Sheen passed, he would get in the memoriams only because he had a recent blockbuster-of-a TV show, but Haim’s struggle with landing roles in recent history got him snubbed from the memoriams. Here’s part of Feldman’s statement, the full story comes out soon on Moviefone:

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 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.
