This is the guy who we’re told is responsible for the biggest screwup in Oscar history … the guy who handed Warren Beatty the wrong envelope.
His name — Brian Cullinan — an accountant at Pricewaterhouse. He’s a veteran … 30 years at the accounting firm.
Here’s the thing … Brian was supposed to discard the spare Best Actress envelope and hand Warren Best Picture.
As for why … we know this. Brian was tweeting like crazy during the ceremony, posting photos … so he may have been distracted. Brian has since deleted the tweets, but one was a pic of Emma Stone with her Oscar. If it was tweeted right after her win, that’s exactly when Brian should’ve been prepping for the next category … Best Picture.
No word on whether discipline is in store.
We’re told the firm is issuing an apology to all concerned.
