You had one job Oscars website.
The official nominations were announced today at lunchtime and the whole country is delighted that Limerick born Ruth Negga was nominated for her role in 'Loving'.
However, according to the official website for about ten minutes, she was not, and instead it had Amy Adams listed for Arrival.

The website has since been amended...
Poor Amy Adams must have been raging as no doubt enough people would have seen it for her to have received texts or calls about it. The actress already has had five Oscar nominations and had two standout performances this year in both Arrival and Nocturnal Animals.
A last minute swap? Crossed wires? All very strange.
Still though, g'wan the Ruth.
