Australian producer Jan Chapman, whose picture was used during the 'In Memoriam' segment' was "devastated" when she saw her face during the 2017 Oscars In Memoriam segment.

Janet Patterson, is a costume designer who passed away in October 2015, but the Academy accidentally used a picture of her friend Chapman, who is still alive!

"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," she told Variety

Patterson and Chapman worked together on the movie, 'The Piano.'
