Accounting firm Pricewaterhouse Cooper take responsibility for Oscars blunder.

Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway are not to blame for what was the greatest mix-up in Oscars history.

Beatty and Dunaway wrongly announced La La Land as the winner of the ‘Best Picture’ award instead of Moonlight, after mistakenly being given the wrong envelope.
