The Oscars Avoided Another Envelope Mix-Up by Using This Comically Large Font
After last year's unforgettable envelope mix-up, the Oscars were especially determined to get things right this year. The Academy and accounting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers devised a plan with new rules and regulations to ensure that envelopes would not get lost or mistakenly presented during the wrong category. In addition, they debuted a giant new f*cking font.
As categories were announced throughout the evening, viewers noticed the new Oscars envelopes features a foolproof font displaying the category very visibly on the back, so that everyone watching in the theatre and at home could plainly read it. Even so, Guillermo del Toro made sure to check the envelope before accepting his award for best picture. Do you blame him?
