The PricewaterhouseCoopers accountants responsible for the show-ending mixup at the Academy Awards are under their employer's protection and will never work the Oscars again, the accounting firm and the motion picture academy told NBC News on Wednesday.
PwC told NBC News that personal information and the pictures of the homes of Brian Cullinan and Martha Ruiz, the Oscars' envelope guardians, had been posted online. The company said it was providing security to protect Ruiz and Cullinan, who remain with the company and "are not going anywhere," a PwC official said.
