Oscars Accountants Apologize After Best Picture Mistake

(AP) - The firm responsible for overseeing the Oscars envelopes is apologizing for the foul-up that led to "La La Land" mistakenly and temporarily winning "Moonlight's" Best Picture award.  PricewaterhouseCoopers issued an explanation hours after Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway announced that "La La Land" had won. The elation was short lived as the film's producers soon realized "Moonlight" was the actual winner.  The firm says that the presenters had accidentally been handed the wrong envelope.  While that's why the mistake went down on stage, the firm is now investigating how the error happened at all. PricewaterhouseCoopers thanked the nominees, the Academy, ABC and host Jimmy Kimmel for how they handled the mix-up.
