The Academy Awards, known as the Oscars, is a group of twenty-four awards, for artistic and technical science in the American film industry, given annually by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS), to recognize excellence in cinematic achievements as assessed by the Academy's voting membership. The various category winners are awarded a copy of a golden statuette, officially called the "Academy Award of Merit", which has become commonly known affectionally by its nickname "Oscar." 

Each January, the entertainment community and film fans around the world turn their attention to the Academy Awards. Interest and anticipation builds to a fevered pitch leading up to the Oscar telecast in February, when hundreds of millions of movie lovers tune in to watch the glamorous ceremony and learn who will receive the highest honors in filmmaking

Do you remember the Miss Universe honest mistake handling the crown to Miss Colombia? Now, here we go again.

We sincerely apologize to "Moonlight," "La La Land," Warren Beatty, Faye Dunaway, and Oscar viewers for the error that was made during the award announcement for Best Picture. 

The presenters had mistakenly been given the wrong category envelope and when discovered, was immediately corrected.

We are currently investigating how this could have happened, and deeply regret that this occurred.We appreciate the grace with which the nominees, the Academy, ABC, and Jimmy Kimmel handled the situation.

PwC, one of the best-known accountancy firms in the world, has supervised counting the ballots and the announcements, for the majority of Academy Awards ceremonies. Its employees wait in the wings, passing the results to the presenters. The failure of a system that was supposed to be foolproof, checked and counterchecked repeatedly, could not have been more public – watched by Hollywood stars and millions of people across the world on television.

Some of the focus has shifted to PWC supervisors Brian Cullinan and Martha Ruiz, who oversee the counting procedures and are the only two people who know the winners list before the ceremony.

In a prescient interview with the Huffington Post last week, under the headline “What would happen if a presenter announced the wrong winner at the Oscars?”, Cullinan and Ruiz discuss the “unlikely” eventuality that the wrong nominee will be called.

They told the news website that the exact procedure for dealing with such a mistake was unknown because such errors had never been made in the Oscars’ 88-year history.

“We would make sure that the correct person was known very quickly,” Cullinan told the Huffington Post. “Whether that entails stopping the show, us walking onstage, us signalling to the stage manager – that’s really a game-time decision, if something like that were to happen. Again, it’s so unlikely.”
