Now we are shaking with anticipation to find out who will win the awards for the 2015 Best Motion Pictures at the Golden Globes because millions of movie fanatics may have gotten spoiled early! On Jan. 9, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association released the names of two films underneath a winners category on the Golden Globes website. Here’s what we know about the situation.
Golden Globes Best Picture Winners Released Early?
So, just who were the films that were possibly leaked onto the Golden Globes website?
Into the Woods and Selma!
The movies were shown underneath pictures for the 2014 winners 12 Years a Slave and American Hustle, according to Deadline. They were soon taken off the site completely.
The Golden Globes is saying that the situation was just a glitch.
“While testing the official website of the Golden Globe Awards for Sunday’s ceremony, Bluefin inadvertently took the test live,” a spokesperson for the tech company told Deadline. “We randomly selected two film titles with no knowledge of the category winners. We are solely responsible for the error.”
Well, that’s a bummer. However, these two critically-acclaimed films could be named as the winners come Jan. 11.
The people of Ernst & Young are the only ones to have access to the winners list, according to the HFPA’s regulations for the ceremony. They are not supposed to release anything until the day of the show.
This is a big year for movies. In the category for Best Motion Picture – Drama alone, films like Boyhood, The Theory of Everything and Boyhood have all been nominated. Into the Woods is going up against Birdman, The Grand Budapest Hotel and more.
