Oscar ceremony includes picture of still alive producer Jan Chapman in 'In Memorium' Segment

  • An image of Jan Chapman, a legendary Australian producer who made films like The Piano, Bright Star and The Babadook, was used with the name Janet Patterson

  • Patterson was an Oscar winning Costume designer who also worked on Bright Star who died last year

  • The confusion occured because there were limited photographs of Janet Patterson, and one of the few available featured both Chapman and Patterson standing together in the same photograph

  • Chapman (who is very much alive!) issued this statement:

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.

    Overwatch Post: Competitive S4, Meet Efi Oladele, Rumors/Theories for Doomfist, 24th Hero, and more!

    Collapse )

    Later on, another tweet revealed the aftermath of a battle that took place at the Numbani aiport. The PTR (Public Test Region) updated the Numbani stage to reflect this change. As of this post, the identity of the 24th hero has yet to be revealed.

    In a nutshell, you can set up custom games with various settings and parameters. Capture the Flag is becoming a permanent game mode in custom games with new map settings. Also changes to Bastion and PTR updates.

    The 4th season of Overwatch Competitive starts February 28th! Are you on track to becoming Grandmaster rank or are you stuck in BPA-free plastic rank like myself? Who do you think the new hero is going to be? Who do you want it to be? What skins did you get in the Lunar New Year event?

    Casey Affleck appalled by his production company's Trump donation

    Casey apparently had no idea that his production company - The Affleck/Middleton Project - donated $5,000 to the Trump campaign. In a statement to BuzzFeed stating as such, Affleck added that he was never asked about it beforehand and would have never authorized it. Affleck has been very vocal against Trump, calling his policies un-American as recently as Saturday's Indie Spirit Awards.

    Affleck's partner in the company, John Powers Middleton, is a known Republican and personally donated $220,000 to a pro-Trump pac.

    The #Oscars hit a nine-year ratings low last night

    The Oscars hit a nine-year ratings low, with viewership falling for a third year in a row.

    Last night's broadcast averaged 32.9 million viewers.

    The show drew a 22.4 rating, which is down 4 percent from last year.

    This year's telecast is the lowest-rated telecast since Jon Stewart hosted in 2008.

    Some speculate that the show's length and focus on politics turned off potential viewers.

    Big Little Lies: Episode 3 Preview (HBO)

    Who else is watching? I read the book after watching the premiere episode, but please use spoiler tags if you are discussing anything only book readers would know at this point in the series. Thoughts on the closet scene between Celeste & Perry? Theories on who the victim and/or murderer is? Girl in the blue dress on the beach? Did Ziggy choke Amabella? (Fun Fact: Pauly D from Jersey Shore's daughter's name is also Amabella. TheMoreYouKnow.gif). I cannot wait for the next episode. New favorite show.

    Teen Vogue talks to Lena and Grace Dunham

    Earlier this month, Lena Dunham and her sister Grace sat down with each other to talk about shit. As Teen Vogue puts it: The children of New York artists Laurie Simmons and Carroll Dunham are cut from the same fearless cloth, tending not only to their careers and the state of America but their tenacious, glorious bond, which is as worthy an endeavor as any.


    On childhood

    Lena: "I remember very clearly being an only child and the rage that came with having my only childhood taken away from me. I also know that if you hadn’t been born, I would be minus many qualities, like empathy (lol) and the capacity to properly socialize and to share things."

    Asghar Farhadi's Oscar win has white conservatives mad



    -Iranian director Asghar Farhadi won for Best Foreign film at the Academy's, due to the Muslim ban boycotted and sent astronaut Anousheh Ansari to give his speech in his place

    -His speech delivered an anti-Trump and anti-Muslim ban message, saying "Dividing the world into the 'us' and 'our enemies' categories creates fear, a deceitful justification for aggression and war. These wars prevent democracy and human rights in countries which have themselves been victims of aggression".

    -Got many conservatives shook and attacking him with racist/xenophobic comments, many saying he's not entitled to saying anything because he is from Iran and that he should speak out about Iran's injustices first (which he has in the past...its not his fault hes subjected to living in an Islamic theocracy??)

    -One of those people is Tammy Lauren

    Debbie Harry says her "bisexual days" are gone and that her sexual experimention was due to hormones

    Blondie singer Debbie Harry says that her "bisexual days" are gone and that she's no longer bisexual.

    Reflecting on her "bisexual days," Debbie believes that her sexual experimentation was due to hormones.

    She says that although she has great affection for some of her female friends, she thinks that in her case, it was due to her being younger, since her hormones were changing.

    Debbie also added that she is very happy that today's society can deal with sexual identity better than in the past.

    PwC awards handler caught tweeting & not paying attending during Oscars Best Picture mess

    Short summary:

    PwC handler Brian Cullinan was caught tweeting pics while backstage during the Oscars last night (he's deleted the tweets since of course), and one of the tweets in question (of Emma Stone backstage after she won) took place a couple of minutes before Best Picture was announced.

    So he wasn't paying attention to the envelope he gave to Warren Beatty, according to insiders.

    Another PwC guy who's probably Brian's boss said Brian “feels very, very terrible and horrible. He is very upset about this mistake. And it is also my mistake, our mistake, and we all feel very bad.”

    Source: https://twitter.com/Variety/status/836363592077291520 (the pic he took of Emma's at the source too)

    There you go: PwC was unprofessional as fuck and didn't do their job.

    • From this year's Academy Awards nominees, she would like to work with Lin-Manuel Miranda.

    • She joked that she and Joss Whedon talk all the time about the Black Widow solo movie and that they send each other spider emojis.

    • She really doesn't know if a Black Widow solo movie will ever happen, but right now she's trying to wrap her head around Infinity War because the production looks infinite.

    • She's seeing Ghost in the Shell for the first time next week.


    If this movie ever happens, Joss Whedon and his flop writing of Natasha better stay away from its production.

    Fifth Harmony perform live at Universal Studios; still use Camila's backtrack

    Fifth Harmony had a concert at Universal Studios in Orlando on 2/25/17. Although they now only have four members, they are still using a loud backtrack for the chorus. Most groups do this, but this is a problem since instead of a blend/harmony of their voices, the choruses are basically sang by Camila who is no longer a member of the group. Some members are basically lipping to the track or not even trying. Ally tried to sing over the chorus when she could.
