London (ANI): Golden Globe organisers have issued an apology for mistakenly stating Anne Hathaway as the winner of the Best Actress category on its website. An asterisk had appeared to the star"s name in the list of nominees - even though the award ceremony was to take place on January 11. According to the statement on the website, the actress, who is nominated for Rachel Getting Married, had been 'randomly marked as a winner' by accident, reports the BBC.
The statement said: "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. The mistake was immediately corrected."
