The men and women in charge of this year’s Academy Awards have a lot of explaining to do.
By now, you’ve probably heard about the Best Picture fiasco at last night’s premier event for everyone in the film industry, where the Best Picture Award was accidentally given to La La Land, and the crew were halfway through their speeches before someone realised that the winner should have been Moonlight.
Getting wrong something as fundamentally important as the Best Picture Award at the Oscars is a mistake the organisers behind the event will find difficult to live down. The company that oversees the counting of the ballots for the Oscars, PricewaterhouseCoopers, have already expressed their sincerest apologies for the blunder.
It’s arguable however, that PwC weren’t really to blame for the gaffe. The announcers of the award, Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway, appear to have been handed the wrong envelope and it’s unclear whether PwC themselves were in charge of handing them out. But they definitely weren’t to blame for another error that occurred at the ceremony.
