There's still so much tea being spilled about the Oscars Best Picture mix up!

As you surely know by now, on Sunday, there was a MAJOR onstage blunder when Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway mistakenly called out La La Land as the Best Picture winner — when in reality the film Moonlight was the victor. Since then, Brian Cullinan and Martha Ruiz, the PricewaterhouseCoopers accountants who were responsible for the snafu have been disciplined.

But don't feel too badly for the accountants, as the Oscars' longtime stage manager, named Gary Natoli, has since come forward and dished about how incompetent these two actually were. Oooh, go on!

We're still just so floored that Bill Paxton is dead.

The character actor passed away from complications following heart surgery on Saturday, and days later we're still hearing stories of his immense "generosity."

This time, another of his Big Love wives — Ginnifer Goodwin also had wonderful things to say while on the Oscars red carpet — is paying tribute.

In an extended interview with Entertainment Weekly, Chloë Sevigny says Bill represented equal parts kindness and courage.

In fact, one might have even fed the other. Chloë has a theory that it was Bill's good nature that allowed him to shine in huge, star-studded movies like The Terminator, Aliens, and True Lies:

They also didn't realize the ghosts of their pasts would become brand new scandals.

PricewaterhouseCoopers Accountants Responsible For Oscars Gaffe Have Been Fired… From Awards Show Duty!

| Filed under: OscarsGIFs

Brian and Martha are going back to their desks.

Well, we can't say we didn't see this coming.

The PricewaterhouseCoopers accountants, Martha Ruiz and Brian Cullinan, who were responsible for the unbelievably embarrassing Oscars Best Picture mix-up on Sunday have been fired from working the Oscars in the future.

They still have jobs at PricewaterhouseCoopers, but they won't be handing out wrong envelopes at the Academy Awards anytime soon.

Bye, guys! It's been real!

Apparently, they are both devastated over what happened but call it an "honest mistake." And although Cullinan was blamed for being distracted by tweeting the entire night, the truth is the Academy actually encouraged him to share his experiences on social media. *shruggie emoji*

We hope they're better at their jobs as accountants than they were at handing out correct envelopes! LOLz!

Trouble in paradise??

Despite cozying up to each other at Vanity Fair's Oscars party, it seems there might have been a bit of trouble in paradise for Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom.

As you've probably seen by now, the two announced their split on Tuesday after 10 months together.

Well, new pics (above) of the actor getting flirty with a beautiful brunette who obviously isn't the songstress have surfaced from a pre-Oscars party at Tao nightclub in Hollywood.

Orlando was spotted with Erin McCabe, the daughter of Global Green's president, and even could be seen rubbing her back and apparently rested his hand on her leg.

Sources also claim she swapped her place card at the Wednesday night even so she could be seated next to The Lord of the Rings star!

So inneresting.

Even with the apparent flirting or very friendly conversation, Orly took to Instagram on Monday to share a selfie with Katy's adorable pup Nugget. Both the Chained To The Rhythm singer and his ex-wife Miranda Kerr liked the snap:
