Oscar glory beckons for Accountant

The profession is shrugging off its boring image with the news that a movie about an 'eccentric' accountant is in the running for an Academy Award at this year's Oscars.

The Accountant

, a 38-minute film by Ray McKinnon has been nominated in the category of best short film, live action. It tells the story of an ‘eccentric’ accountant brought in to rescue a small farm in the American South, steeped in debt.

According to a review on filmthreat.com ‘the schemes and solutions’ concocted by the accountant are of a ‘frightening nature’, involving a possible murder in order to benefit from an insurance policy.

The winner will be announced at the 2002 Academy Awards ceremony which takes place in Los Angeles on 24 March. All votes for awards in the 24 categories are diligently added up and checked by accountants from PricewaterhouseCoopers.
