Oscars Website Mistakenly Lists Amy Adams, Tom Hanks as Nominees

Yikes. The Oscars website mistakenly listed Amy Adams and Tom Hanks as nominees on Tuesday, January 24.

The error was under the Best Actress and Best Actor categories. “Amy Adams, Arrival” briefly replaced “Ruth Negga, Loving,” while Hanks’ name was added for his role in Sully.
