According to reports, the pair responsible for the Best Pictures mix up at this year's Academy Awards ceremony, Brian Cullinan and Martha Ruiz, have been forced to up their security after receiving death threats on social media. According to TMZ, photos of their homes have also been posted online, and the accountancy firm PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) have confirmed that they have both received security detail.
Martha and Brian have received death threats
He continued: "I still do not understand the delay. Brian should have run out there on his own. Martha should have run out there. We know that Brian was taking pictures backstage when he should not have been, and not paying attention... And there was the new design of the envelope, which we had complained about to the Academy." The wrong winner was announced by Bonnie and Clyde actors Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway, and Warren immediately spoke to the audience about how the error was made. "I want to tell you what happened," he explained during the confusion onstage. "I opened the envelope and it said 'Emma Stone, La La Land'. That's why I took such a long look at Faye and at you. I wasn't trying to be funny."
