Corey Haim was a prolific and well-known actor in his younger days, starring in a string of 1980s hits including the cult vampire classic The Lost Boys.

So when the actor, who died last March at the age of 38, was left out of the montage of actors who passed way over the last year at the Academy Awards on Sunday night, his mother was outraged.

“When it was over, I shut the TV off and was so hurt, and I was numb and feeling his pain,” Judy Haim tells PEOPLE exclusively. “This would have hurt him to the core.”
