The guy responsible for the “Best Picture” blunder at the Academy Awards on Sunday has been revealed!

Brian Cullinan is an accountant for Pricewaterhouse Coopers, the company tasked with tallying and processing the Academy’s Oscars votes. Unfortunately, Brian is also the guy who gave Warren Beatty the duplicate “Best Actress” envelope instead of the “Best Picture” envelope which resulted in “La La Land” being announced as the winner instead of “Moonlight”. But, before he created the biggest catastrophe the Oscars has ever seen, HipHollywood caught up with him on the red carpet.

So how could Cullinan make such a huge mistake? According to People, Brian was tweeting a pic of Emma Stone after she won “Best Actress” and was distracted when it came time to give Mr. Beatty the “Best Picture” envelope. “In the now-deleted tweet, Cullinan, shared a photo of the Best Actress winner smiling while holding her award backstage. The time stamp shows it was posted at 9:05 p.m., only minutes before the Best Picture blunder occurred,” People reports. “Brian was asked not to tweet or use social media during the show,” a source stated. “He was fine to tweet before he arrived at the red carpet but once he was under the auspices of the Oscar night job, that was to be his only focus.” Yikes!

PwC took to Twitter to issue a statement about the debacle.

So, do you think Brian should be fired?

Annihilation is one hell of a visually stunning sci-fi film with five female leads on an expedition to uncover the mysterious phenomenon that is expanding across the American coastline.

For Natalie Portman, Tessa Thompson and Gina Rodriguez, the film, which also lends a voice to what is being called the year of the woman, dressing in head to toe military gear and going through tactical training was a bonding experience.

“”t was really fun. It’s weird to say that. But to have all these women in military training together, where we had to do these exercises … it was a great bonding experience with each other.” Portman told us.

And although the women had the opportunity to use real guns, firearms is not something the ladies of Hollywood advocate. “I’m anti gun to be honest,” Rodriguez said. “I say no guns. There’s no reason for people to have guns especially when you have these,” she said while holding up her firsts.

This past week Gina has been very vocal via social media about gun legislation and the idea behind policy and change following the tragic high school massacre an Parkland, Florida.
Annihilation, also starring Oscar Isaac, hits theaters on February 23.
