Last Night's Other Oscar Flub You Might Not Have Heard About

By now you may have already heard about how Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway pulled a Steve Harvey at last night's Academy Awards and announced La La Land as the Best Picture winner despite the fact that Moonlight actually was supposed to take home the title. But that wasn't the only embarassing mistake at the event -the in memoriam segment also featured a picture of someone who is very much still alive. 

Australian film producer Jan Chapman was shocked to see her image used in the reel rather than the image of her collaborator, Janet Patterson, who died in October. On the upside for Chapman, she is not only alive and well, but also getting a lot of publicity from the mistake. You can read more about the producer at Heavy.

As a side note, If you haven't see the Best Picture mixup yet, you can see the whole trainwreck here (skip to the 1:50 mark to see the frantic faces in the background as the awards staff tries to fix the mistake):
