Here’s the full statement PwC put out about their historic Oscars mix-up

The accounting firm’s error led to La La Land being announced as Best Picture instead of Moonlight, the actual winner. Their statement [via the Wrap]:

We sincerely apologize to Moonlight, La La Land, Warren Beatty, Faye Dunaway, and Oscar viewers for the error that was made during the award announcement for Best Picture. The presenters had mistakenly been given the wrong category envelope and when discovered, was immediately corrected.  We are currently investigating how this could have happened, and deeply regret that this occurred. We appreciate the grace with which the nominees, the Academy, ABC, and Jimmy Kimmel handled the situation.
