When the biggest award of the Oscar night was given to the wrong director, humiliation was sure to follow.
Despite winning for best actress, Emma Stone, the leading actress in La La Land stated that the mix-up was one of the most horrible moments in her life.
Oscar host Jimmy Kimmel even felt embarrassed. “I’m standing there like an idiot, feeling bad for these guys — but also trying really hard not to laugh, to be honest” Kimmel shared in an interview for The Washington Post.
Kimmel may be able to laugh, but the PwC accountants that caused the mix-up certainly won’t be. PwC reported to NBC news that the two men responsible will no longer be working for the Oscars. Hopefully this means that there will never be such an embarrassing mistake again.
