SAG website leaks awards early
Taye Diggs and Busy Philipps announced the 2013 SAG Award nominees this morning at 6 a.m. PT. But if you knew where to look, you could have learned the news hours earlier.
According to the Los Angeles Times, readers of the Awards Daily blog discovered that a glitch in the SAG website allowed readers to see the nominees by typing in the actor or movie’s name in a simple search. Though there was no comprehensive list posted on the site, the database snafu revealed the eventual nominations several hours before the official announcement.
“We are aware of this matter,” a SAG spokesperson said in a statement. “There appears to have been a technical glitch with the website uploading process and we are working with our vendor to resolve the problem.”
