The Oscars will be a little less glamorous this year.

Halle Berry, who was set to present at the 84th annual Academy Awards ceremony on Sunday, has canceled her appearance because of her broken foot, PEOPLE has learned.

Berry injured herself while shooting Cloud Atlas in Spain in September. According to the movie’s studio, Warner Bros., the accident occurred while “walking in Majorca on a day off from filming.”

But it turns out there was a little more to the story. A source told PEOPLE at the time that Berry was chasing after her 3½-year-old daughter Nahla, who was chasing after a goat across a stretch of rocky countryside.

Berry will be missed – but at least she has the perfect scapegoat!

The 84th Academy Awards will air live from Hollywood’s Kodak Theatre Sunday at 8:30 p.m. ET on ABC.
