The childhood best friend of the late teen star Corey Haim has criticised the organisers of the Oscars for leaving him out of a memorial montage at Sunday’s ceremony.
Corey Feldman, who co-starred with Corey Haim in Joel Schumacher’s The Lost Boys when they were both teenagers, said the decision had been a failure on the part of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
The makers of a documentary short set in Tel Aviv were celebrating after winning an Oscar at the awards ceremony in Los Angeles.
Best Documentary Short winner Strangers No More, a look at Israel’s Bialik-Rogozin primary school, was made by Karen Goodman and Kirk Simon. The school has pupils from almost 50 countries, many of whom have escaped conflict zones and persecution.
