Oscars Website Accidentally Says Amy Adams, Tom Hanks Were Nominated, ABC Apologizes

Moonlight stars Mahershala Ali left and Naomie Harris seen at the AFI Awards earlier this month in Los Angeles have both been nominated for Oscars for their roles in the movie

The following contains mild spoilers for Arrival.

It will make the announcement digitally via a global live stream on its website Oscars.org, also carried by some broadcasters, rather than at a press conference as in years past.

This image released by Paramount Pictures shows director Denis Villeneuve, left, and actor Jeremy Renner on the set of the film, "Arrival".

"Finding Dory" - which stars Ellen DeGeneres in the titular role - and Dreamwork's "Trolls" both missed out on a nod in the Best Animated Feature category.

If it's any consolation, Adams isn't the first actress to see her winning moment escape her again and again.

In a joint statement, producers Shawn Levy and Dan Levine, added the film was 'anchored by the magnificent performance of Amy Adams'.

Adams, who's been nominated for a whopping five Oscars in the past, was a surefire candidate to take home an Oscar nomination this year for her performance in the atmospheric sci-fi thriller Arrival.

Star Wars Episode 8 has its title
Director Rian Johnson has said the next film will pick up where "The Force Awakens" left off , according to Entertainment Weekly . Of course, there is a theory that Rey is a Skywalker, so it's possible that the title could be in reference to her as well.

Since 2009, movies such as District 9, Avatar, Inception, and Her have picked up best picture nominations. As Melissa Silverstein put it on Twitter, "gets eight Oscar noms but the woman who held it together gets ignored".

Of, course, Adams wasn't the only person misplaced on the list. An article on Forbes mentioned in the headline that the incident is the "year's biggest snub". Mendelson claims that she is the "uncontested lead character".

Nominated under the same category alongside Garfield and Washington, Viggo Mortensen's Oscars nod for his understated performance in "Captain Fantastic" too came as a surprise.

The Telegraph said: "Adams is one of the best actresses Hollywood has".

Numerous stars in these films are also nominated for the acting categories, including Fences' Denzel Washington and Viola Davis, Hacksaw Ridge's Andrew Garfield, Hell or High Water's Jeff Bridges, Hidden Figures' Octavia Spencer, La La Land's aforementioned Gosling and Stone, Lion's Dev Patel and Nicole Kidman, Manchester by the Sea's Casey Affleck, Lucas Hedges and Michelle Williams and Moonlight's Mahershala Ali and Naomie Harris.

Anna Escurriola agreed, writing: "Arrival is extraordinary and the acting of Amy Adams is superb".
