Fans may have gotten a Golden Globes spoiler today when the award show website appeared to reveal two Best Picture winners. But is the info legit?
Movie buffs perusing the awards website today noticed something strange: Two movies listed as 2014 winners are actually 2015 nominees. See for yourself:

It looks like a Golden Globes web developer was probably doing some mock-ups ahead of Sunday’s show and either was just testing something out with randomly selected nominees, or we’ve just been given a major heads-up that Selma will take home the win for Best Motion Picture, Drama, and Into The Woods for Best Motion Picture, Comedy. Whatever happened, it was obviously a major oops — not only would the Globes never want to leak the winners early, but the photos listed with each were still from the 2014 winners (12 Years a Slave and American Hustle, respectively).
The Golden Globes team eventually caught wind of the big boo-boo and changed the site back to list only the 2014 winners, but it does make you wonder… While Selma is a favorite to take the win not just at the Globes but the Oscars as well, could Into The Woods really beat out category favorite Birdman?
Just in case, Anna Kendrick had better start practicing her faux-surprised face.
