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.
