PwC Accountants Fired From Oscars After Best Picture Fiasco

The president of the film academy reports that the two PricewaterhouseCoopers accountants responsible for the best-picture flub at Sunday's Oscars will never return to the Academy Awards show. Cheryl Boone Issacs tells The Associated Press that the relationship between PwC and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' still remains under review. Boone Issacs broke her silence today following the biggest blunder in the 89-year history of the Academy Awards.

PwC accountants Brian Cullinan and Martha Ruiz, pictured above, were responsible for the winners' envelopes at Sunday's Oscar show. Cullinan, a top executive at the firm, tweeted a photo of Emma Stone from backstage minutes before handing presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway the wrong envelope for best picture. 

PwC confirmed that Cullinan's distraction was the definite cause of the error.
