The Unbalanced Being of the Day | PriceWaterhouseCoopers

Did anyone watch the Oscars last night? Also known as The Academy Awards? If you didn’t, you missed the biggest blunder in Oscar history. Oh, it was a doozy I tell ya…….a doozy!

Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty presented the nominees for best picture. On stage, Beatty was given the task of opening the envelope that was supposed to contain the winner. He showed her the card, and Dunaway read it aloud. ‘La La Land,’ she said. And that’s where things got weird.
It turns out that ‘La La Land’ was not the winner and the real winner was the movie ‘Moonlight’. ¬†According to The Hollywood Reporter, the accountants from PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) typically create two complete sets of winners’ envelopes. So it is possible Stone had her envelope and another was handed to Beatty. Somewhere in this process the two accountants from PwC, that stand on opposite sides of the stage throughout the ceremony, alternating between each other in the handing out of envelopes, handed Warren Beatty the wrong one.¬†

It was an embarrassing moment for the Accounting firm and they put out this note just recently “We sincerely apologize to ‘Moonlight,’ ‘La La Land,’ Warren Beatty, Faye Dunaway, and Oscar viewers for the error that was made during the award announcement for Best Picture.”
We’re sure they’re kicking themselves right now on what was a very simple mistake. They shouldn’t kick themselves that hard even though they will. Why you ask? Everyone who missed the show last night is now watching the replay and it’s the talk at water coolers everywhere. As they say in Hollywood, even bad press is good press.
But still, we know they’re quite embarrassed and that’s why PriceWaterHouseCoopers is The Unbalanced Being of the Day.
