Turns out the guy who has been in charge of the Oscar envelopes for the last 20 years was not invited to participate in this year's event. They obviously did it on the cheap, and this is what they get.

Nonsense.

Care to elaborate?

Both the PWC accountants behind the screw-up have now been banned from ever participating in the Oscars again, so next year’s ceremony should be duller unless PWC hire some more inept staff to replace them. wink

Apparently the person who organizes the envelopes each year for Price Waterhouse was not asked to work on the Oscars this year. From what I've read, two PW employees were brought in to organize the envelopes and it turns out one of them was caught texting during the event, which is something they were explicitly told not to do. They were to focus only on the envelopes. There are two of each made up in case one gets lost. I'll bet the one Warren Beatty got, with Emma Stone's name on it for best actress, was the duplicate and the Best Picture envelope was missing. Obviously the Best Picture envelope was found after the fact, because they showed it on T.V. after the mix up.
