With the revelation of the Oscar nominations less than a week away, an apparent glitch at Oscars.com seems to have let the cat out of the bag for one nominee according to NY Daily News on Jan. 4. In spite of the list of nominees and winners being among the moist carefully guarded secrets in the industry, the name of one possible nominee made its way to the website anyhow.
Someone at Vanity Fair magazine noticed a test page posted on Oscars.com that shouldn’t have been there. The page revealed that Sharen Davis, the costume designer for “Django Unchained” was perhaps a nominee. The text on the page stated: “This is the third Academy Award nomination for Sharen Davis. She was previously nominated for Dreamgirls (2006) and Ray (2004).”
The website quickly removed the page once the magazine notified them of the post. While the accidental posting is not proof that Davis is indeed a nominee, she was still delighted at the prospect when told about it by Vanity Fair.
“Oh my gosh! I haven’t even lost weight!” Davis said to the magazine. “I never thought about an Oscar in my life. When they called me for Ray, I thought it was a prank call. I said, ‘Am I going to open the door and see one of those fake, standing Oscars?’”
The actual Academy Award nominations will be announced on Jan. 10.The awards show will air Feb. 24 on ABC.
