Sometimes in Hollywood it takes more than one try to get the perfect shot.

On Sunday afternoon, that was the case for the accountants bringing in the Oscar ballot results — the men walked calmly down the red carpet clutching briefcases as a film crew recorded their every move.

But before they could enter the Dolby Theatre, they had to repeat the last leg of their walk.

This time fans in the bleachers cheered.

The cameras rolled and everyone was satisfied.


The men walked into the theatre.

It’s Hollywood.
