Janet Patterson Was Included In The #Oscars ‘In Memoriam’ But They Used The Wrong Picture
— CBS News (@CBSNews) February 27, 2017
If you’ve seen it once, you’ve it a million times. The old ‘this lady died but we’re going to use a picture of someone else who’s actually alive because we obviously don’t give a shit’ trick. Not only is this shitty for the woman who’s alive, but it’s terrible for the family of the woman who died as well. Janet Patterson is a four time Oscar winning costume designer, and they couldn’t even attach the right picture to her name. Between this, the Best Picture mix-up and the lack of a two and a half hour Bill Paxton tribute, I think we need somebody else at the control of next year’s show.
