Mixing up the winner for best picture on the Oscars is dangerous. Placing an image of somebody who could be very a lot alive within the “In Memoriam” video may be even worse.
That is Jan Chapman:
Chapman is a producer, and she or he shouldn’t be lifeless. Sadly, her photograph was used in the course of the “In Memoriam” as an alternative of a photograph of the late costume designer Janet Patterson.
Chapman had labored with Patterson on the movie “The Piano” and told Variety she was a “nice pal.” She went on to chastise the academy for the error, saying she anticipated the potential for this type of combine-up and the academy stated “that they had it coated.” Clearly they didn’t.
“I used to be devastated by means of my picture instead of my nice good friend and lengthy-time collaborator Janet Patterson,” Chapman advised Selection. “I had urged her company to verify any photograph which is perhaps used and perceive that they have been informed that the Academy had it coated. Janet was an ideal magnificence and 4-time Oscar nominee and it is extremely disappointing that the error was not picked up. I’m alive and nicely and an lively producer.”
