Perez Hilton’s Daily Update: Oscars’ Envelope Gate Explanations Come Rolling In

When it was time to announce the Best Picture winner at the 2017 Oscars, the Academy, PricewaterhouseCoopers, Warren Beatty, and Faye Dunaway all had ONE job.

ICYMI – Hollywood icons Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty announced ‘La La Land’ as the Best Picture winner, when really ‘Moonlight’ won the night’s top honor.

According to the presenters, they were mistakenly handed the envelope for the Best Actress category and didn’t notice until the damage was done. Now everyone is pointing fingers to explain how the mix-up¬†happened, and PricewaterhouseCoopers is taking the blame.

The accounting firm in charge of safeguarding the Oscars results have given two explanations for the mix-up: the Academy redesigned their envelopes, making it difficult to read the exterior writing indicating which winner the envelope contained. They also admit the accountant who was holding the briefcase with the winning envelopes was tweeting and taking photos with celebs backstage instead of paying attention to the ceremony.
