A veteran stage hand revealed that the two Oscars accountants hired by PriceWaterhouseCooper reportedly “froze” right as the wrong movie for Best Picture was announced. Now, the PwC duo that flubbed the Oscars Best Picture envelopes needs their own security to protect them. What is the latest information on the most shocking event to ever occur at the Academy Awards and will the duo be back to do a better job next year?
According to Gary Natoli, who spoke to The Wrap, the evidence is mounting that that the PwC experts not only knew a mistake was made, but they reacted slowly to resolve this issue. They were like deer in the heads lights.
“I’m sure they’re very lovely people, but they just didn’t have the disposition for this. You need somebody who’s going to be confident and unafraid.”
