Visitors to the Oscars site shared screen grabs of the gaffes, showing Amy Adams in the Actress in a Leading Role category for "Arrival," and Tom Hanks as a sixth (!) nominee in the Actor in a Leading Role category for "Sully":

Sadly for Amy Adams, but happily for Ruth Negga, the "Loving" star was the correct fifth nominee. Not sure why Adams was placed in there, or how Hanks got shoved in as the sixth name in a five-person category, but it's all good now. That is, it's good for everyone but the fans who feel like Adams and Hanks were snubbed.
Later Tuesday morning, ABC released a statement on the error:
"This morning, in an attempt to release breaking news as announced, ABC Digital briefly posted inaccurate nomination information on the Oscar.com website. The nominees announced by the Academy on Twitter were accurate. ABC quickly identified and corrected the errors. We apologize to the Academy, press and fans for any confusion."
Hey, it happens to the best and worst of us alike. Here's the full list of actual nominees. The Oscars will be handed out in a live ceremony on Sunday, Feb. 26 on ABC.
