Hulianna MOore and benedict XCuebrvatch - The Guardian's hilarious Oscar typos

“May I be the first the first to wish the best of luck to benedict XCuebrvatch and Eddie Redmaybe.”

THE GUARDIAN FIRED up a liveblog to announce the Oscar nominations as they rolled in this afternoon. Such is the nature and speed of live announcements, there was a rush to get things going.

It was a spelling massacre. But fair dues to them, they managed to get one or two words right.

What was going on?
