PricewaterhouseCoopers Assigns Security to Accountants Responsible for Oscars Fiasco

PricewaterhouseCoopers Oscars MovieSpoon.com

[dropcap]A[/dropcap]fter the big Oscars screw-up over the weekend, viewers everywhere joked, “Well, someone is getting fired.” Turns out those predictions were true. PricewaterhouseCoopers just gave the boot to the accountants responsible for the mix-up.

PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), a professional services firm, has been involved in the Oscars for years. They are responsible for tabulating voting results, preparing envelopes with the winners inside and handing them off to the presenters.

The disaster unfolding onstage.

As everyone now knows, somehow the wrong envelope got to Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty when they were presenting the Oscar for Best Picture, resulting in a fiasco. Now PwC has revealed that the two accountants handing off the envelopes, Martha Ruiz and Brian Cullinan, will never work at the Oscars ceremony again.

However, the two will retain their jobs at PwC. In fact, the pair currently are under PwC’s protection. Their personal addresses were posted online, and PwC assigned security to help protect them from any rabid Oscars fans.

Denzel Washington Made a Couple’s Dream Come True at the Oscars

Published

Denzel Washington Oscars MovieSpoon.com

[dropcap]E[/dropcap]verybody’s talking about that big Oscars mishap (you know the one), but there were also some hilarious moments from the awards ceremony last night. One came when host Jimmy Kimmel got an unsuspecting group of tourists to come to the event. But it was Denzel Washington that sealed the deal with some humor.

The tourists were on a Hollywood tour bus when they found out they’d be going to an Oscar dress exhibit. However, they weren’t told that the dresses were on real live celebrities who happened to be at the Oscars at the time.

They walked in near the stage and Jimmy Kimmel greeted them. The looks on their faces when they saw that they were at the Oscars were pretty priceless. But the best moment came when Denzel Washington “officiated” a wedding.

A couple of the tourists were engaged, and Jimmy Kimmel asked the woman of the duo who her favorite actor is. She pointed at Denzel and said, “That man right there!” Denzel got up out of his seat to come pronounce her and her fiancé man and wife.

Watch the video here:

Denzel, can we hire you now for our next birthday party?

‘La La Land’ Best Picture Oscar Ripped from Grasp by ‘Moonlight’

Published

Oscars La La Land MovieSpoon.com

[dropcap]Y[/dropcap]ou all knew this article was coming. It’s impossible to do an Oscars recap without addressing the big flub that happened with the Best Picture award. We will say this: The Oscars definitely went out with a bang when La La Land had the Best Picture Oscar taken away and given to Moonlight.

Oscars La La Land MovieSpoon.com

‘Moonlight’ and ‘La La Land’ both had some big wins.

As those who watched the entire ceremony know, Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway took the stage to announce the Oscar for best picture. It’s the biggest award of the night and the big finale of the program. Beatty looked a little confused as he opened the envelope revealing the winner, but most people thought he was just hamming it up for the big reveal. He announced La La Land, and the filmmakers happily took the stage and started making speeches.

However, viewers could almost immediately tell something was up. Josh Horowitz, who produced La La Land, paused mid-speech as staff members with headsets and different envelopes drifted behind him. Horowitz then passed on the news–Beatty announced the wrong winner. Instead, Moonlight won best picture.
