'In Memoriam' Tribute at Oscars Featured Picture of Producer Who is Still Alive


There was another mistake at the Oscars that left an Australian producer "devastated."

A photo of somebody who is still alive was used during the "In Memoriam" tribute.

Janet Patterson, an Australian costume designer and four-time Oscar nominee passed away in October 2015.  She was included in the segment and while her name and occupation were correct, the photo used was of Jane Chapman, a very much alive Australian film producer.

The two were apparently very good friends and there are many pictures of them together.  

“I was devastated by the use of my image in place of my great friend and long-time collaborator Janet Patterson," Chapman said.
