Jimmy Kimmel Seeks Therapy For Best-Picture Trauma In New Oscar Promo

Jimmy Kimmel participates in the

The presenters of the award mistakenly announced that the Oscar for Best Picture would be going to La La Land, when it should have gone to Moonlight. In an interview with the Associated Press, Tim Ryan, PwC's USA chairman and senior partner explained that Brian Cullinan and Martha Ruiz, the two PwC partners responsible for mishandling the envelope and failing to correct the error quickly, have not been invited back to the prestigious ceremony.

A new procedure will be in place in which the celebrity presenting the category and a stage manager will confirm that they have received the right envelope in order to avoid any onstage surprises. The accounting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers admitted 2017's big "oops" was because an employee handed off the wrong envelope. The new stage-side partners overseeing the envelopes will include Rick Rosas, who previously worked in that post for 14 years, and colleague Kimberly Bourdon from the company's Los Angeles office.

After the finger want pointed at PwC - the auditors are responsible for counting votes and handing out envelopes - and the firm's two partners who attended the awards show to make sure everything ran smoothly, senior partner Tim Ryan came up with a foolproof plan to ensure such a snafu never makes live TV again.

"Our singular focus will be on the show and delivering the correct envelopes", Ryan said.

Ultimately, academy officials and board members decided not to "throw out 83 years of flawless partnership over this, while huge, one human error", she said, adding that PwC helped build the digital voting system the academy has been using for the Oscars in recent years.

"I tried to get past it though, you know, and put it behind me, but it just catches up to me", he says. In fact, he admits he sees the Oscar statue everywhere, burns his tux, and feels like he's losing his mind.

Off the back of Tuesday's Oscar nominations, everyone is buzzing for the ceremony on Sunday 4 March.
