All eyes were on EY after what happened at the 2017 Oscars. As you may or may not remember Pricewaterhousecoopers botched the 2017 Oscars. The two partners Martha Ruiz and Brian Cullinan got the envelope for best picture mixed up. They awarded the Oscar to La La Land when it should have gone to moonlight. They ended up correcting the matter but not before PwC’s reputation was permanently damaged. There was also some worry as to whether PwC would lose the engagement, but PwC leadership got involved and they were able to retain the engagements.
So entering the 2017 Emmy’s there was so much spotlight on the EY accountants, but it appears like the night went off without a hitch. There was a lot of joking around and reference to EY though. That isn’t a bad thing. Having focus on you for the entirety of the show was free advertising for Ernst and Young. They can thank PwC for that.
