Golden Globe organisers apologise over Hathaway 'mistake'
Golden Globe organized have apologized after it was suggested on the awards’ website that Anne Hathaway had won the best actress trophy.
Hathway’s name had an asterisk next to it in a list of nominees, indicating she was the winner, despite the awards ceremony not taking place until Sunday.
A statement on the Golden Globes website says: “In the process of preparing for Sunday’s Golden Globe Awards, a technician working on the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s (HFPA) website made a mistake and a name of a nominee was randomly marked as a winner.”
Adding: “The mistake was immediately corrected.”
The statement insists it does not mean Hathway had won the best actress award for her role in Rachel Getting Married.
Angelina Jolie (for Changeling), Meryl Streep (Doubt), Kristin Scott Thomas (I’ve Loved You So Long) and Kate Winslet (Revolutionary Road) are also up for the best actress award.
