I'm sure you've been wondering if PwC was going to revive its #BallotBriefcase gimmick for this year's Oscars and sure enough, it's getting passed around like a joint at a Dead show.
Here's partner Brian Cullinan (aka Matt Damon) explaining the process:

Yes, everyone wants to hold this pretty average looking briefcase that currently has nothing in it because it once held Jennifer Lawrence's name on an envelope. And that's understandable, whatever works for a marketing schtick, but thank god people are wearing gloves. I mean, look at all these people getting all handsy with this thing:

If they didn't make people wear the gloves, by the team it reached the Dolby Theatre, that thing would be as filthy as a bathroom door knob.
