In the now-deleted tweet, Cullinan shared a photo of the Best Actress winner smiling while holding her award backstage. The time stamp shows it was posted at 9:05 p.m., only minutes before the Best Picture blunder occurred.
“Brian was asked not to tweet or use social media during the show,” a source told the magazine. “He was fine to tweet before he arrived at the red carpet but once he was under the auspices of the Oscar night job, that was to be his only focus.”
The source continued, “Tweeting right before the Best Picture category was announced was not something that should have happened.”
The Academy may actually end their distinguished and longtime working relationship with the firm.
