While the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences doesn’t go public with nominees for this year’s Oscars until next week, its website has accidentally leaked the name of one on a test page.

A test page at the official website of the Academy Awards revealed that Django Unchained costume designer Sharen Davis has been nominated for an Academy Award, New York Daily New reported.

“This is the third Academy Award nomination for Sharen Davis. She was previously nominated for Dreamgirls (2006) and Ray (2004),” the premature text on the test page read.

After the mistake was pointed out, the Academy quickly moved to scrub the website of any mention of Davis or Quentin Tarantino’s film.

“Oh my gosh! I haven’t even lost weight. I never thought about an Oscar in my life,” said Davis.

The Oscar nominations will be officially revealed on January 10.
