Well, this is awkward.

Gina Rodriguez: 'The Late Show with Stephen Colbert' Appearance

While tweeting a photo from this morning's 2016 Golden Globe nominations, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association thought presenter America Ferrara was Jane The Virgin's Gina Rodriguez.

“The @goldenglobes noms are about to start! @HereIsGina @ChloeGMoretz @ImAngelaBasset #DenisQuaid #Golden Globes," HFPA tweeted. 

According to Page Six, Buzzfeed entertainment reporter Jarett Weiselman was the first to catch the mistake.

"Yeah, that's America Ferrera not Gina Rodriguez, official #GoldenGlobes Twitter account..."

I mean, it was 5:30 in the morning there, but still.

What's worse, four minutes before that Tweet, they made the same mistake.

“.@HereIsGina is kicking off the @goldenglobes nominations announcements #GoldenGlobes.”


Rodriguez won a Golden Globe for her role in the CW series last year; she's nominated again this year.
