No bueno. Early Thursday, Dec. 10, the 2016 Golden Globe Awards nominations were announced live from the Beverly Hilton hotel. Presenter America Ferrera was first up to the podium, and the awards’ official Twitter handle captured the moment.
“.@HereIsGina kicking off the @goldenglobes nominations announcements #GoldenGlobes,” the account captioned a photo of Ferrera, 31, tagging the handle for Jane the Virgin star Gina Rodriguez instead.
While Rodriguez, 31, went on to score a nomination for her role in the CW telenovela, she wasn’t at the Beverly Hilton. Fans quickly picked up on the online blunder.
The Golden Globes account took down the image, later posting one of presenter Chloe Grace Moretz and tagging Ferrera’s handle.
Neither actress has commented on the flub, but Rodriguez, who won last year’s Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Comedy TV Series, did react to her nomination, tweeting, “Speechless gratitude. @goldenglobes.”
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association told Us Weekly in a statement, “What occurred this morning was an unfortunate error. Our sincerest apologies to both America and Gina.”
