ABC screwed up Oscar Nominations

How do you screw up a pre-produced nominations announcement? Just ask ABC.

As the Oscar nominations were announced on Twitter and on Good Morning America this morning, ABC managed to make some errors. It incorrectly listed Tom Hanks among the Best Actor nominees and Amy Adams as a Best Actress nominee, and omitted two Best Supporting Actor nominees.

The Academy's social media announcement was correct from the start, and ABC quickly rectified its error. It released a statement a few minutes ago saying, "This morning, in an attempt to release breaking news as announced, ABC Digital briefly posted inaccurate nomination information on the website. 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.
