LOS ANGELES, Feb. 1 (UPI) -- The Screen Actors Guild Awards in Los Angeles did not include the late actor Corey Haim in its In Memoriam segment, drawing criticism from actor Corey Feldman.

Feldman, who co-starred with Haim in "The Lost Boys" and "License to Drive," said in a statement Monday it was not the first time he and Haim -- former child actors who struggled with addiction -- were slighted, The Hollywood Reporter said.

"We have become used to not being honored by our peers in the industry," Feldman's statement said.

Feldman, 39, said he hoped the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will "make a wiser choice" in the traditional In Memoriam segment during the Academy Awards telecast.

Haim died at 38 last March in Burbank, Calif. The Los Angeles County coroner said he died from natural causes with drugs playing no direct role in his death.
