ABC Digital has apologized for mistakenly naming Amy Adams and Tom Hanks as Academy Award nominees on the Oscars website on Tuesday.
Amy Adams, already a five-time nominee, had been widely-tipped to pick up another nomination for her performance in acclaimed sci-fi film Arrival, which has been nominated for eight awards including Best Picture.
This year is a rare occasion where the Best Actress field is so stacked with top-flight performances that you could make an entirely separate category with great lead female performances (Halie Steinfeld, Taraji P. Henson, Jessica Chastain, Annette Bening, etc.) that didn't get nominated. Adams' not being nominated was widely considered a snub.
To add insult to injury, the Academy made a mistake, accidentally listing her name among the best actress nominees on the Oscars website, instead of Loving actress Ruth Negga, having to publicly announce the mistake and remove Amy Adams from the list. ABC quickly identified and corrected the errors.
Other fans expressed surprise that hit comic book movie Deadpool didn't pick up a single nomination, even in technical categories. Rolling Stone's Peter Travers wrote, "Adams, her face a reflection of conflicting emotions, is simply stellar in an Oscar-buzzed performance of incredible grit and grace".

He threw for just 1,048 yards as a senior at Penn Charter, handing off the ball extensively in the team's triple-option offense. And you could have won some pretty good coin in Vegas if you had a prop bet on Hogan doing what he did Sunday night.
It was also overlooked by the Academy in the best picture category. Amy Adams recently received the National Board of Review's Best Actress award, Palm Springs International Film Festival's Chairman's Award and was honored by the 2016 Gotham Independent Film Awards with a career achievement honor. She started in 1979 with a nod for Best Supporting Actress in "The Deer Hunter".
The Oscar nominations are out, with surprises and snubs all around.
In fact, the uniform brilliance of Adams' performance might partly explain why she didn't get a nomination.
In years past, its been pretty easy to predict which movies will get nominated and which will ultimately end up taking the award for Best Animated Feature at the Oscars.
The film also received nominations for film editing, adapted screenplay, cinematography, sound editing, sound mixing and production design.
