The Oscars Are Keeping Their Accounting Firm And Adding A Bunch Of Exciting Regulations Full Of Movie Magic
Getty Image The most amazing moment at February’s Academy Awards was likewise the most humiliating scenario for everybody included. (No, it wasn’t a sound editor’s pants to expose a saucy underwear. WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN!) Moonlight’s historic (and well-deserved )Best Image win was sidetracked by an incorrectly revealed outcome, loads of confusion and the realization that Barry Jenkins would continue to be asked loads of questions about La Land despite the fact that Oscar season had actually already ended. Presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway were quickly defended and the Oscar’s go-to accounting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers was pegged as the culprit. In spite of the headaches triggered, the Academy Awards want to give PwG another chance.
Due date reports that the long-time Oscar accounting company will be doing the honors again for 2018’s ceremony. There will be some modifications, mind you. The two accountants blamed for the mistake have actually been taken off the accounting professional like renegade polices off an assignment and the Oscar balloting vet Rick Rosas will be going back to the fold. (Note to Hollywood: Do not make a film about this.)
Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs kept in mind that “brand-new procedures” will be instituted moving forward. Auditor Brian Cullinan was without delay roasted on Twitter after being photographed while sidetracked with his phone after the huge snafu and now electronic devices are banned by the company in their backstage endeavours. A 3rd accounting professional will also be embedded in the control space as another method to preserve result integrity. Please keep all this in mind when xXx: Return of Xander Cage beats Power Rangers at next year’s Oscars.
