ABC Apologizes for Listing the Wrong Oscar Nominees

Jan 24, 2017  •  Post A Comment

ABC issued an apology today after listing some Oscar “nominees” who weren’t in fact nominated. The network released a statement saying: “This morning, in an attempt to release breaking news as announced, ABC Digital briefly posted inaccurate nomination information on the Oscar.com 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.”

The incorrect information was quickly removed from the site.

Deadline.com notes that the erroneous information showed Tom Hanks nominated for Best Actor for “Sully,” Amy Adams nominated for Best Actress for “Arrival” and Annette Bening nominated for “20th Century Women.” None of them actually received nominations.
