PwC partners gear up for Oscar fever

and Rick Rosas, senior partners at PricewaterhouseCoopers in Los
Angeles, are gearing up for arguably the most glamourous job in accounting –
donning tuxedos to rub shoulders with Hollywood glitterati at the annual
Academy Awards on 25 February.

Before they step out with the rich and famous to hand over the winners’
envelopes, Oltmanns and Rosas will have the responsibility for managing the
Academy Awards
voting process
, from the initial votes that allow a shortlist of nominees to
be compiled to the voting that determines the winners in each category.

They will be the only people who know how many votes each film, director and
actor has received. They will even seal the winners’ envelopes and personally
hand them to the presenters of each award.

This year’s awards will be the 73rd time PwC has overseen the voting.
