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. »

26 February 2017 11:56 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Leading Australian producer, Jan Chapman was “devastated” by another mistake in the Oscars telecast.

In addition to the best picture gaffe, during the show’s In Memoriam segment, a photo of a living woman was mistakenly used.

Janet Patterson, an Australian costume designer and four-time Oscar nominee (“The Piano,” “Portrait of a Lady,” “Oscar and Lucinda” and “Bright Star”) passed away in October 2016.
