Judi Dench Doppelgänger Mistaken For The Best Supporting Actress Nominee On The Oscars Red Carpet

Despite being nominated for an Oscar, Dame Judi Dench wasn't actually at this year's ceremony, although many people thought she'd had a change of heart after spotting what they thought was the 'Philomena' actress on the red carpet.

The 79-year-old star was actually thousands of miles away but that didn't stop fans shouting out her name to a certain Sue Monro, who is the wife of double-nominated sound mixer Chris Munro, and who happens to bare a resemblance to the Oscar nominee.

Speaking about the mix up, Sue said: "I was greeted with cries of 'Judi, Judi, Judi!'"

"It’s the short hair," she said just before her hubby won a gong for his work on British-made film 'Gravity'.

'Philomena' producer Tracey Seaward explained the real Judi Dench, who was nominated in the Best Actress category, was a no-show at this year's Academy Awards because of prior engagements.

‘She wasn’t able to get away in time," she said. "It’s a long journey for her, some 26 hours. She just couldn’t be here but she has sent messages."
