Who's to blame for one of the most epic mix-ups in the history of the Academy Awards?
however...the brilliant mind that decided to make red and gold envelopes also deserves to be taken down a peg or two (and maybe a salary or two while we're at it)...if the envelopes were clearly marked, maybe even selfie-boy could have seen the error, along with everybody else...
faye dunaway and warren beatty have no pony in the blame race here...and after all...la la land was expected to win anyway...
"Throughout the last month, the Academy team has worked hand-in-hand with PwC to review our wide-ranging relationship – everything from Oscars voting, auditing, and taxes – during which we asked them to lay out for us a path and a process towards ensuring that everything will continue to the high standards the Academy expects and you deserve,” Boone Issacs said before outlining the changes.
Ruiz and Cullinan will no longer be working the show and a third PwC accountant who knows the list of winners will now be placed in the control room to ensure a quicker reaction time if the situation happens again.
The accountants working the show will also have to hand their phones over to avoid distractions, as Cullinan had been strictly told not to post on social media during the show but uploaded a picture of Emma Stone to Twitter just a few minutes before handing Beatty the wrong envelope.
The Academy also plans to regularly review its relationship with PwC to avoid another chaotic moment happening again."
