Oscars Accountants Responsible for Snafu Will Not Be Returning

The two accountants responsible for Sunday night’s infamous Best Picture mixup have been let go from overseeing any future Academy Awards, Vulture reports.

Brian Cullinan and Martha Ruiz of PricewaterhouseCoopers were responsible for overseeing every winning envelope of the night – apparently, Cullinan had tweeted a photo of Best Actress winner Emma Stone with her award backstage moments before handing Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty the wrong envelope.

Cheryl Boone Isaacs, the president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, announced that the pair would not be asked back to work the Oscars again. She also expressed gratitude for the grace of the La La Land producers, whom she said “went from a nominee to a winner to a presenter in a matter of minutes.”

Just to refresh your memories, here’s the craziness of the Oscars’ final moments again:
