Is it time to celebrate? The Golden Globes website received more attention than the HFPA may have liked on Friday, Jan. 9, when it experienced a strange glitch, seemingly announcing the 2015 Best Picture winners.

According to Deadline, Selma, the drama that chronicles Martin Luther King's campaign for equal voting rights, was announced as the winner for Best Motion Picture, Drama. As for the Best Motion Picture, Musical Or Comedy? The star-studded film Into the Woods took the top spot.

Both titles appeared underneath images for "2014 winners," but were quickly removed. To calm nerves, a spokesperson for the tech company that handles the site also spoke out about the incident. 

"While testing the official website of the Golden Globe Awards for Sunday's ceremony, Bluefin inadvertently took the test live," the unidentified spokesperson told Deadline. "We randomly selected two film titles with no knowledge of the category winners. We are solely responsible for the error."

The 72nd Golden Globes will air live from the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills at 8 p.m. EST on NBC.
