More and more news is coming out about the partners at the Oscars. This Oscars mistake keeps growing by the day.
To highlight this I wanted to write about something I was listening to recently. I was listening to one of my favorite podcasts which is the Bill Simmons podcast. He recently had Jimmy Kimmel, the host of the Oscars, on and this was one of Jimmy Kimmel’s first interviews since the Oscars.
Now these people aren’t accountants at all. Bill Simmons is just a sports journalist. Jimmy Kimmel is a comedian yet all they could talk about was how they this Oscar screw-up was. Bill Simmons went so far to say that it would be one of the first paragraphs in Jimmy Kimmel’s obituary. Jimmy Kimmel laughed that statement off, and said I really hope not.
Bill Simmons replied, “I don’t think you know how big a deal this thing is. This is still going to be a big deal in a few months.” When he said that, all I could do is shake my head. When I first saw this news about PwC screwing up the Oscars, I thought it was a huge deal for PwC. I didn’t think it would be as big as it is for them now. Their name and their brand, PwC, is always going to equal Biggest Oscar Mistake in history for the average American.
