Could Sunday night be a very good night for Selma and Into The Woods? Well, if you happened to be on the Golden Globes website earlier today, you would have seen the Paramount-released former appear as the winner for Best Motion Picture, Drama, and the Disney-released latter getting Best Motion Picture, Musical Or Comedy. Was someone over at the HFPA a little to0 fast on the old keyboard? Well, kind of.
The titles popped up underneath images for 2014 winners 12 Years A Slave and American Hustle but soon were replaced. Selma is nominated along with Boyhood, Foxcatcher, The Imitation Game and The Theory Of Everything, and Into The Woods is vying against Birdman, The Grand Budapest Hotel, Pride and St. Vincent.
Such an online leak would not be unprecedented. Back in late 2012, the SAG Awards nominees showed up on the union website hours before the official announcement.
In this case, the Globes gang says it was just a glitch and nothing was revealed.
