The Oscars ALSO Falsely Killed Someone

What happened last night?!? 

Besides the big "Best Picture Award" blunder everyone is talking about, there was another pretty bad screw up that went down at last night's Academy Awards! 

It turns out the Oscars also falsely "killed someone" too! 

I know there were a lot of people to list in this year's "In Memoriam" portion, but how did THIS happen? 

So one of the pictures shown was said to be "Janet Patterson," Costume Designer. Take a look:

Janet Patterson did pass away this year, but the problem is that's not actually her! It's, in fact, her friend and collaborator Jan Chapman!

What?? In a statement Chapman said:

“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 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.”

Yikes. Someone is getting fired.
