The 2004 awards, which take place on the 29 February, will mark the 70th time the firm has managed the balloting process. In 1935, the first year PwC (then known as Price Waterhouse) counted votes, ‘Mutiny on the Bounty’ won best picture.

Greg Garrison, lead ballot partner at PwC said it was a ‘tremendous honour’ and ‘extremely gratifying’ for the firm.

The process itself has not changed in all this time with votes counted by hand by the PwC Academy Awards team, lead by Garrison and Rick Rosas, a tax specialist.

On the night of the show, PwC partners remain backstage and hand the envelopes to the presenters of the various awards, as they go on stage to announce the winners.
