It’s not just the Oscars‘ website that’s messing up names!

Whomever is in charge of running the Lion movie’s social media royally screwed up as they accidentally listed Naomi Watts as the Best Supporting Actress nominee from their flick. This was a problem, because A) Miz Watts wasn’t even in Lion and B) it was her bestie Nicole Kidman who was nominated for this year’s Academy Award.

So ridiculous! According to reports, on Tuesday, a promotional poster was uploaded onto the film’s Facebook and Twitter pages, which celebrated the film’s six nominations. But, as you can see (below), the 48-year-old’s name is oddly there.

Talk about a face palm moment! To make matters worse, this social media screw up comes amid Watts’ Razzie nomination for Worst Actress for her work in The Divergent Series: Allegiant AND Shut In. Ouch.

Of course, fans flocked to Twitter to brutally DRAG (below) the movie for its online hiccup.

HIGHlarious! We think this whole gaffe is a sign Nicole should just bring Naomi to the Oscars with her as her plus one.

What do YOU think? Can you believe someone mixed up these two A-listers?

SOUND OFF in the comments (below)!
