Australian Producer Jan Chapman Mistakenly Shown During Oscars In Memoriam Segment: 'I Am Alive and Well'

By
During the In Memoriam portion of the show, a photo was shown of Australian producer Jan Chapman with the name Janet Patterson written with it.
Patterson, a costume designer, did pass away in October 2016, but it was Chapman’s face that erroneously appeared with Patterson’s name.
"I was devastated by the use of my image in place of my great friend and longtime collaborator Janet Patterson," Chapman told Variety via email after the Academy Awards.
"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. Janet was a great beauty and four-time Oscar nominee and it is very disappointing that the error was not picked up. I am alive and well and an active producer."
Jenifer Aniston was the presenter for the tribute and emotionally spoke about actor Bill Paxton, who died over the weekend following complications from heart surgery, calling him “a friend” and “cherished member of our Hollywood family."
Sara Bareilles provided the touching vocals as the pictures and clips of those we lost this year rolled on-screen.
Viewers took notice that late stars including Garry Shandling, Robert Vaughn, Alexis Arquette, Doris Roberts and Florence Henderson were not seen during the segment.
