Oscar night was mostly a big, long bore Sunday night – well, up until the final few minutes of chaos.
If you didn’t watch…
So how did it all happen? The accounting firm PwC, formerly Price Waterhouse Coopers, released a statement after the show (via Daily Mail):
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.
The presenters had mistakenly been given the wrong category envelope and when discovered, was immediately corrected. We are currently investigating how this could have happened, and deeply regret that this occurred.
We appreciate the grace with which the nominees, the Academy, ABC, and Jimmy Kimmel handled the situation.
Yeah. Ok. Mistakes happen. And hey, it made Steve Harvey relevant again.
Call me Warren Beatty. I can help you get through this! #Oscars
