Oscar 'In Memoriam' Snubs: Corey Haim, Betty Garrett
Some viewers are peeved not to have seen Betty Garrett and Corey Haim in the "In Memoriam" montage at the Oscars. Here's a quick tribute.
Betty Garrett, who was first put onstage by Orson Welles in 1938 and died at 91 in Los Angeles on Feb. 12, kept roommate Carol Channing's spirits up when she got fired and bounced back from her own more serious setback, a career stomped by the '50s Red Scare. She flirted with Frank Sinatra in On the Town and Take Me Out to the Ballgame and was a regular on TV's hits All in the Family and Laverne and Shirley.
Corey Haim, who starred in Lucas and License to Drive and grew up to be the most lost man in The Lost Boys, troubled by drugs, died at 39 on March 10. Former co-star Corey Feldman had objected when there was no Haim tribute in the "In Memoriam" section of the SAG Awards in January. "I have faith that the Academy will make a wiser choice," said Feldman. He was mistaken.
