Published

Denzel Washington received a nomination for Best Actor for his role in Fences. The story was a film adaptation of a play he and Viola Davis had previously starred in on Broadway. Though his performance was stellar, he ended up not taking home the win.

Instead, Casey Affleck won for Manchester by the Sea. Many people were not pleased about this since Affleck had faced a sexual harassment scandal a few years back. Even Brie Larson, who presented him with the award, refused to clap for him.

[dropcap]A[/dropcap]fter the big Oscars screw-up over the weekend, viewers everywhere joked, “Well, someone is getting fired.” Turns out those predictions were true. PricewaterhouseCoopers just gave the boot to the accountants responsible for the mix-up.

PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), a professional services firm, has been involved in the Oscars for years. They are responsible for tabulating voting results, preparing envelopes with the winners inside and handing them off to the presenters.

The disaster unfolding onstage.

As everyone now knows, somehow the wrong envelope got to Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty when they were presenting the Oscar for Best Picture, resulting in a fiasco. Now PwC has revealed that the two accountants handing off the envelopes, Martha Ruiz and Brian Cullinan, will never work at the Oscars ceremony again.

However, the two will retain their jobs at PwC. In fact, the pair currently are under PwC’s protection. Their personal addresses were posted online, and PwC assigned security to help protect them from any rabid Oscars fans.

‘La La Land’ Best Picture Oscar Ripped from Grasp by ‘Moonlight’

Published

Oscars La La Land MovieSpoon.com

[dropcap]Y[/dropcap]ou all knew this article was coming. It’s impossible to do an Oscars recap without addressing the big flub that happened with the Best Picture award. We will say this: The Oscars definitely went out with a bang when La La Land had the Best Picture Oscar taken away and given to Moonlight.

‘Moonlight’ and ‘La La Land’ both had some big wins.

As those who watched the entire ceremony know, Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway took the stage to announce the Oscar for best picture. It’s the biggest award of the night and the big finale of the program. Beatty looked a little confused as he opened the envelope revealing the winner, but most people thought he was just hamming it up for the big reveal. He announced La La Land, and the filmmakers happily took the stage and started making speeches.

However, viewers could almost immediately tell something was up. Josh Horowitz, who produced La La Land, paused mid-speech as staff members with headsets and different envelopes drifted behind him. Horowitz then passed on the news–Beatty announced the wrong winner. Instead, Moonlight won best picture.

“I’ll have a scotch and soda, thanks.”

The nominees for the 2016 Golden Globes were just announced! The show is on January 10th and will be hosted by three-time host Ricky Gervais.

In case you didn’t know, the Golden Globes are hosted by the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn and are known to be a “boozy affair.” Sounds fun. Especially if you have to sit though speeches from winners in 25 categories — 14 in film and 11 in television.
