The official website of Golden Globe Awards declared historical film ‘Selma’ as Best Picture Drama and Meryl Streep’s ‘Into the Woods’ as Best Picture Comedy before the actual award ceremony, owing to a technical glitch.

The 72nd Golden Globe Awards will take place tomorrow.

The titles popped up underneath images for 2014 winners ’12 Years A Slave’ and ‘American Hustle’ but soon were replaced, reported Deadline.

‘Selma’ is nominated along with ‘Boyhood’, ‘Foxcatcher’, ‘The Imitation Game’ and ‘The Theory Of Everything’, and ‘Into The Woods’ is vying against ‘Birdman’, ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’, ‘Pride’ and ‘St Vincent’.

“While testing the official website of the Golden Globe Awards for Sunday’s ceremony, company Bluefin inadvertently took the test live,” a spokesperson for the tech company said.

“We randomly selected two film titles with no knowledge of the category winners. We are solely responsible for the error,” the spokesperson added.

According to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s regulations for the annual ceremony produced by dick clark productions, only the good folk at Ernst & Young have access to the winners list.

They aren’t supposed to hand over anything until tomorrow’s telecast or let anyone else know who will be giving an acceptance speech.
