And we're not talking about the fact that they got snubbed, as so many lists will complain now that the nominations are out — in fact, they appeared in two categories for just a split second.

While the Academy revealed the nominations via a live video, the site was regularly updated to feature the films and actors that had made it onto the list, and it looks like whoever was typing got a little bit too eager: was shortly included for Best Actress in a Leading Role, while Tom Hanks had a brief moment in the Best Actor section.

It's a huge disappointment for those who got excited a little too quickly, but at least there's little chance the two actors even caught wind of the slip-up. While it's a shame that Adams didn't get a nod when she was both in Arrival and Nocturnal Animals this year, she's already got five nominations under her belt, for American Hustle, The Master, The Fighter, Doubt and Junebug. Hanks was also nominated five times and won twice already, for Forrest Gump and Philadelphia.
