[ # ] The Oscars also killed a living person!
February 27th, 2017 under Oscars

If you thought that Oscarsgate was the only major blunder at the Oscars, you would be mistaken. During the In Memoriam, they posted the wrong photo for Australian costume designer Janet Patterson, who passed away last year. The person was pictured was Australian producer Jan Chapman and the two worked on The Piano together.

Chapman told Variety, “I was devastated by the use of my image in place of my great friend and long-time collaborator Janet Patterson. I had urged her agency to check any photograph which might be used and understand that they were told that the Academy had it covered. Janet was a great beauty and four-time Oscar nominee and it is very disappointing that the error was not picked up.” Finally declaring, “I am alive and well and an active producer.”

You would think they would triple check whose pictures they post in the segment. There is no excuse for not airing the right photo because it is not like they include that many people. Plus, they had 4 months to find the right photo of someone who was nominated for four Oscars.

You know, the Oscars is an annual event, you would think with an year of preparation, they would get things right and not two things wrong.
