The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences must be feeling a little deflated after the biggest stuff-up in awards show history.
Audience members and viewers alike aren’t soon going to forget the moment Faye Dunaway incorrectly announced La La Land had won Best Picture before it was revealed Moonlight was, in fact, the intended recipient.

As part of the In Memoriam segment which pays tribute to those who have passed away who made an impact the film industry, Australian woman Janet Patterson was honoured for her contributions to costume design.
Frustratingly to those that knew the notoriously private costume designer personally, the photo that accompanied her name was not of Patterson, but another Australian – producer Jan Chapman.
