The PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) firm has been auditing the votes since 1934. The newspapers used to announce the winners before the ceremony, but in 1941 the sealed envelope system was implemented. Prior to a PwC envelope mix-up in 2017, when an error occurred during the best picture award announcement, only two firm partners were aware of the results until the envelopes were opened.
After 2017, new procedures were adopted, including the incorporation of a third partner to also memorize the list of winners. The third partner sits with the Oscars producers in the control room, while the other two counting partners sit on opposite sides of the stage. Additionally, PwC partners are prohibited from using cell phones and social media behind the scenes during the show.
