I thought that Lucy Fisher and partner's seven Oscars sounded too good to be true. Sure enough, it isn't quite true, although something like it is apparently true and apparently it isn't Fisher's fault. According to the responsible Harvard office (which got back to me with admirable promptness after I sent an inquiry to the President of the Board of Overseers), an early draft of Fisher's bio was accidentally printed on the ballot, but not by fault of Fisher. Apparently the correct information is that films by Fisher's production company, Red Wagon Entertainment, have seven Oscars and twenty nominations, but most of the awards and nominations were not won by Fisher and her partner themselves, but by others working through Red Wagon. So no need to call the cops.
