2011 Oscar 'In Memoriam': Celine Dion Sings 'Smile', Corey Haim & Betty Garrett Snubbed
While the Canadian singer made the moving performance, a montage played on a giant screen showed Leslie Nielsen and Gloria Stuart among others, but not the 'Lost Boys' actor.


Celine Dion made an emotionally rousing performance at the 83rd Academy Awards when singing "Smile" during "In Memoriam" segment. Delivering the song live on the stage at the Kodak Theater in Los Angeles, the mother of three looked graceful in a strapless dress.

During Dion's rendition of the classic song, a giant screen behind her showed montage of talented individuals who passed away in 2010. Mr. Magoo depicter Leslie Nielsen, "Titanic" star Gloria Stuart, actor Tony Curtis, film editor Sally Menke and many others were recognized in the special segment, but Corey Haim and Betty Garrett were not seen in the montage.

For "The Lost Boys" star Haim, this was the second time he got snubbed at movie prize-giving event. He was previously not included in the "In Memoriam" section of the Screen Actors Guild Awards in January.

His former co-star Corey Feldman once commented on the snub at SAG, telling The Hollywood Reporter, "We have become used to not being honored by our peers in the industry." But he hoped that Haim would be recognized at Oscars, saying "I have faith that the Academy will make a wiser choice."

There has been no word from Haim's nor Oscar's camp regarding this. A representative from SAG previously explained Haim's absence from the reel was unintentional, and was due to a circumstance of time.
