Amy Adams and Tom Hanks were not nominated for Oscars this year, though the two were mistakenly placed in the Best Actress and Best Actor categories list on the website. In Adams' case, the actress' name was placed in the category for her performance in Arrival instead of Ruth Negga's, who was actually nominated for her performance in Loving.
Meanwhile, Hanks was placed in the category for his performance in Sully as a sixth nominee, when there are only five -- Casey Affleck for Manchester by the Sea, Denzel Washington for Fences, Ryan Gosling for La La Land, Viggo Mortensen for Captain Fantastic, and Andrew Garfield for Hacksaw Ridge.
"This morning, in an attempt to release breaking news as announced, ABC Digital briefly posted inaccurate nomination information on the Oscar.com website," the statement reads. “The nominees announced by the Academy on Twitter were accurate. ABC quickly identified and corrected the errors. We apologize to the Academy, press and fans for any confusion."
This isn't the first times a major awards show has been called out for a mistake. At the 2016 Golden Globes nominations, the Golden Globes' official Twitter handle mistook actress America Ferrera for Jane the Virgin star Gina Rodriguez.
