The Academy just made a huge blunder leading up to Sunday’s Academy Awards. As explained in the New York Post, The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences unveiled a tool where fans could tweet their predictions called the “Oscars Prediction Experience” tool. Unfortunately, the Academy accidentally tweeted out their own “predictions” for the upcoming show.

In the now-deleted tweet, the academy predicts Parasite to win Best Picture, Laura Dern to with Actress In A Supporting Role, and Joaquin Phoenix to win Actor In A Leading Role. One Twitter user was quick enough to get a screenshot of the tweet before it was deleted.

Of course, Twitter is going crazy as these “predictions” could most likely be Sunday’s winners.

Since the snafu, The Academy as released a statement saying, “We invited fans on Twitter to make and share your #Oscars predictions. A ton of you already have. A brief issue on Twitter made some of yours look like they came from our account. They didn’t. This error is now resolved. And we’ll reveal our picks on Sunday.”
