We shouldn't laugh at PwC, none of us would have done any better: Deloitte would be back at the office congratulating each other and forget about the envelope, EY would have never gotten there...

McKinsey wouldn't be able to execute on the handing out of the envelopes. "We're only here for strategy."

I think PWC should hire some EY Advisory folks to fix their broken process. We'll do a 600k study that recommends they have two people backstage, one to select the envelope and the other to verify it is correct. We'll also recommend strict rules about tweeting back stage and being star struck and neither of the two people can be Partners.

Of course we won't know for sure until we actually do the work so we should get started soon. Our Award Show Systems and Hollywood Assesement Team (known internally as ASSHAT) is very busy these days.

KPMG is not even worth a mention?

And Accenture would blame the software.

... because they would be too busy bickering with each other on who goes, KPMG would be stuck at the front door because no one will let them in, Accenture would have created the most tech savvy solution but no one could figure it out, MBB wouldn't bother because it's beneath them but they would have agreed to do it anyway, IBM wouldn't have sent Watson...
