The Academy Will Still Use PwC Account Firm Despite Best Picture Mistake

The Academy just announced that they will continue to use accounting firm PwC, despite the Best Picture error at the Oscars ceremony earlier this year.

The organization’s board of governors decided to retain the services of the firm, which they have been working with since 1934.

“Heading into our 84th year working with PwC, a partnership that is important to the Academy, we’ve been unsparing in our assessment that the mistake made by representatives of the firm was unacceptable,” President Cheryl Boone Isaacs said in a statement.

It was previously noted they will not welcome the two specific accounts involved in the mishap.

The Academy also revealed that safeguards will be introduced to avoid a repeat at next year’s show.

This includes adding a third balloting leader privy to the results seated in the control room, rehearsals for accountants and a ban on social media devices.

Ryan Gosling and Justin Timberlake had an adorable reunion.

While there was rightfully a lot of buzz about the Best Picture mix-up at the 2017 Oscars, there was definitely not enough attention given to the former Mickey Mouse Club stars as they spotted each other in the audience at the show.

The good friends, who were on The Mickey Mouse Club together from 1993 to 1995, were all smiles while catching up. Ryan‘s Oscars date, his sister Mandi, also spent some time reminiscing.

“We thought we were so cool when we were on The Mickey Mouse Club,” Justin has previously said. “Looking back on them, they weren’t as bad as I thought they were at the time. We stole a golf cart … we drove into MGM Studios, which is totally illegal by the way.”

Nicole Kidman's Dress Straps Broke During the Oscars 2017

Nicole Kidman had a slight wardrobe malfunction during the 2017 Academy Awards, but it thankfully didn’t have an effect on her evening!

The straps on the Oscar-nominated actress’ dress broke during the show and she was seen backstage later in the night with the straps tied behind her neck and hanging down her back.

It appears that the straps may have snapped during the segment of the show when tourists entered the theater and greeted the celebs in the front row.

Nevertheless, Nicole was able to gracefully fix the malfunction and make it look like nothing happened. See photos of the broken dress in the gallery!

FYI: Nicole is wearing an Armani Prive dress and bag, Stuart Weitzman shoes, an Omega watch, and Harry Winston jewelry.
