PwC to tally Oscar winners
Auditors will know winners before anyone else
Auditors from PricewaterhouseCoopers will again tally up all the votes in the
battle for Hollywood’s most prized possession, an Academy Award, ahead of this
weekend’s Oscar ceremony.
Voting officially closed yesterday and ballots will now be counted behind the
closed doors of a nondescript conference room at an undisclosed location.
PwC partners Rick Rosas and Brad Oltmanns will sequester themselves with the
ballots for the three days that it takes them to open and count them all.
The two men will then personally deliver the sealed envelopes with the
winners’ names under police escort to be read out by celebrity presenters at
Sunday’s ceremony in Los Angeles.
PwC has handled the Oscar voting for the last 72 years.
