We already know that the Academy’s accounting firm, PricewaterhouseCoopers, ultimately are the ones to blame for the most entertaining moment of the Oscars, because one of their accountants gave Warren Beatty the Best Actress envelope instead of the Best Picture envelope. But Variety says that at the Vanity Fair party, Faye blamed herself and blurted out, “I really fucked up” And TMZ says that Faye and Warren got into a memaw vs. pepaw battle during rehearsals. They both wanted to read off the winner. Bet if they had to do it again, they’d each fight to not read that mess.
A source told TMZ that Faye and Warren were cold to each other during rehearsals and wouldn’t even block their presentation together. They did it separately. They also got into a little tussle over who was going to do the honor of reading the winner of Best Picture. They both wanted to do it. Warren allegedly backed off and let Faye do it and probably because he knew she was about take a wire hanger to his ass. If you watch the video again, it’s clear that Warren looked down and knew that something in the envelope ain’t clean. He checked to see if another card was in the envelope before handing it over to Faye who just blurted out “La La Land.” TMZ thinks that Faye wanted to beat Warren to the punch.

If we want to keep this oldies battle royale going, we can say that Warren read the card, knew it was wrong and instead of telling someone about it, he thought, “I’ll show Faye what happens when you mess with Dick Tracy.”
PwC spit out another apology yesterday, and it was reported that the accountant responsible for giving Warren and Faye the wrong envelope was Brian Cullinan. Brian is a seasoned accountant, but I guess he gets a case of the fangirls when he’s around Hollywood stars, because he tweeted (and later deleted those tweets) throughout the Oscars. The Best Actress Oscar was given before Best Picture, and Brian tweeted this after Emma Stone won.
Emma Stone’s golden ginger glow must’ve blinded Brian and it caused him to give Warren and Faye the wrong envelope. There were apparently two sets of envelopes. Emma Stone said in the press room that she still had her envelope (pictures of Emma in the press room with the other winners below), so Brian must’ve given Warren and Faye the second one.
Jimmy Kimmel was apparently supposed to close the show with his fake arch rival Matt Damon, but when La La Land got blue balls after finding out that they lost, that bit was trashed. Jimmy explained what happened on his show last night. He basically said what I typed above, but here it is coming out of his mouth.
So after taking in all the facts from this ESCANDALO, I’ve come to the conclusion that Brian the Accountant has a thing for Emma Stone. So if Emma Stone never won Best Actress, then Brian the Accountant wouldn’t have swooned himself into a haze and he may have given Warren the right envelope. So what I’m saying is that this would’ve never happened if the rightful Best Actress winner, Isabelle Huppert, won!
And yesterday, someone e-mailed me to ask what is it with me and Isabelle Huppert. My explanation is really simple. Isabelle Huppert was in Elle, Elle was directed by Paul Verhoeven and Paul Verhoeven directed the greatest movie that ever was: Showgirls! Isabelle is only 2 degrees away from Showgirls. And anybody who has a Showgirls number of 2 or less deserves every award! (P.S. – If you discover that Emma Stone has a Showgirls number of 2 or less, I don’t want to hear it!)
