“Alexis was a great actor and had 70 credits and was really brave to live her truth as a trans woman, and they didn’t include her in the memorial,” Patricia Arquette told Et. “I think that was a real slight to the trans community, especially at this time when trans kids can’t even go to the bathroom in the United States of America at school.

This year's Oscars ceremony went off alright, but not without a hitch (or two).

During the In Memoriam section, a photo of Australian producer Jan Chapman (Love Serenade, Lantana, The Babadook) was shown next to the name of late costume designer Janet Patterson, with whom Chapman worked on several Jane Campion films including The Piano, Bright Star and Holy Smoke..

Patterson died in October last year. Her final film was Thomas Vinterberg's adaptation of Far From the Madding Crowd, starring Carey Mulligan and Matthias Schoenaerts..

.I was devastated by the use of my image in place of my great friend and long-time collaborator Janet Patterson," the still-very-much-breathing Chapman told Variety..

"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. »

Oscars In Memoriam Snafu: Wrong Photo Used of Producer Who Is Still Alive

27 February 2017 12:11 PM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

While the envelope rip heard ‘round the world was the Oscars’ most dramatic gaffe Sunday evening, it was not by any means the most heartbreaking one.

During the evening’s In Memoriam segment, in which industry greats who died in the past year are honored, a photo of someone who is very much alive was used. Australian film producer Jan Chapman had to reassure her friends and family that she was not, in fact, dead.

Oscars In-Memoriam Mistake Shows Producer Who Is Still Alive

27 February 2017 10:08 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Many fans still can't stop talking about last night's big Oscar mix-up, where Warren Beatty and Faye Dunnaway were given the wrong card, and they announced La La Land for Best Picture, when it was actually Moonlight that had won the award. There was also another big mistake that was revealed last night after the In Memoriam segment, where it was revealed that the entry for late costume designer Janet Patterson actually featured a photo of the very alive Jan Chapman. Janet Patterson had passed away in October at the age of 60.

While Jan Chapman's name and occupation were in fact correct on the Oscars In Memoriam tribute, the picture was not, with the Academy using Jan Chapman's photo instead of Janet Patterson's image. Variety obtained an email statement from Jan Chapman, who reveals she was "devastated" the wrong photo was used during the segment. Here's what »

An Australian producer was left “devastated” after seeing her photo flash on screen during the Academy Awards’ ‘In Memoriam’ tribute Sunday night. “The Piano” producer Jan Chapman was shocked after the academy used her photo to commemorate the death of her former collaborator, Janet Patterson, a BAFTA-winning and four-time Oscar-nominated costume designer.

The In Memoriam Tribute at the Oscars Included a Photo of Someone Who's Still Alive

As Sara Bareilles sang a gorgeous rendition of Joni Mitchell's "Both Sides, Now" during a heart-wrenching tribute to all of the icons Hollywood has lost over the last year, photos and names of iconic stars like Carrie Fisher, Prince, Anton Yelchin, and Mary Tyler Moore flashed on the screen in the background. At one point the name Janet Patterson - an Australian costume and production designer who passed away in October - appeared along with this photo: Unfortunately that's not Janet Patterson.

Newswire: The Oscars’ In Memoriam included a person who’s still alive

27 February 2017 5:59 AM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

We knew this year’s Oscars In Memoriam segment was going to be a tearjerker, what with 2016 being the year that claimed the lives of so many of our faves. But there was one viewer who was left devastated by the reel—Jan Chapman, the Oscar-nominated producer of The Piano, who saw a photo of herself included in the clip. It turns out, the photo was misattributed to Janet Patterson, the late costume designer who worked with Chapman on The Piano. Chapman issued a statement about the blunder via Variety, in which she takes the Academy to task for not catching the error before airing the segment, and also makes it very clear that she’s very much alive.

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 ...

Another Oscars Gaffe: Image Of Living Australian Producer Mistakenly Used During In Memoriam Segment

27 February 2017 3:57 AM, PST | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

The Best Picture blunder wasn't the only gaffe at the Academy Awards ceremony last night: During the show's In Memoriam segment, a photo of a living woman mistakenly was used to represent Janet Patterson, four-time Oscar nominee for costume design, who died in October. During the montage, Australian producer Jan Chapman's image was used to represent Patterson. Chapman, who is alive and well, has worked on projects such as Bright Star and The Piano, both from… »

Another Oscar Screw-Up: ‘In Memoriam’ Segment Showed Still-Living Producer Jan Chapman

27 February 2017 1:18 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

If you thought the “Moonlight”/”La La Land” envelope fiasco was the Oscars’ only glaring mistake, think again. The “In Memoriam” segment of Sunday’s show included a tribute to costume designer and four-time nominee Janet Patterson — but ran a photo of the very-much-still-alive Australian producer Jan Chapman by mistake. The two women worked together on Jane Campion’s 1994 film “The Piano,” for which they both received Oscar nominations, and Chapman’s image does appear in some photo databases under Patterson’s name.

Behind-the-scenes images of The Dark Knight’s warehouse fight from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

11 February 2017 10:10 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

While Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice may have come in for heavy criticism in some quarters, it’s fair to say that the big warehouse showdown between The Dark Knight and Anatoli Knyazev’s goons is one of – if not the – best Batman fight scenes ever put to film, and thanks to Heroic Hollywood, we’ve got a look at some behind the scenes images from the production of said sequence…

“The script was still being worked on when we came in, and that’s generally earlier than a lot of directors have us come in, but Zack likes to really let it flow from early R&D,” said second unit director Damon Caro with regards to the conception and construction of the scene. “Half the time it’s like, ‘try this, try that,’ because there are a »

There was always a chance for the best picture category at the 2017 Academy Awards to feature solid representation for female producers and, with the nominations official, the numbers are in. Turns out there are five of the nine films in this year’s top category with women behind it — but how does that stand up to the rest of Oscar history?

As mentioned above, there are five out of the total nine films in the best picture category this year that took some girl power to get made. There’s Hell or High Water (Carla Hacken and Julie Yorn), Hidden Figures (Donna Gigliotti and Jenno Topping), Lion (Angie Fielder), Manchester by the Sea (Kimberly Steward and Lauren Beck), and finally Moonlight (Adele Romanski and Dede Gardner). This leaves out Arrival, Fences, Hacksaw Ridge, and La La Land as »

We started out with Métamorphoses and Les Bien-aimés, La La Land and Jacques Demy, onto the influence of Jack Lemmon and Shirley MacLaine in Billy Wilder's The Apartment.

Superman will “play a big part” in Justice League, confirms Zack Snyder

24 January 2017 1:40 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

To go along with the earlier Justice League image showing Batman, The Flash, Cyborg and Wonder Woman united and ready for battle, director and DC Extended Universe overseer Zack Snyder has made some comments in the print version of Empire regarding the role Superman that will play in the narrative.

“Superman does play a big part in this movie,” said Snyder. “His presence, and lack of presence, are big story points…”

Although he’s been absent from the marketing material so far, it would take a very, very gullible mind to believe that Superman would not have a physical presence in the film at all. Still, some official confirmation of Superman’s return and his importance to the plot is sure to be welcomed by fans of the Man of Steel.
