The Hollywood Foreign Press Association can’t seem to tell one Latina actress from another.
While ramping up for Thursday’s Golden Globe nominations, the Golden Globes’ official Twitter account identified presenter America Ferrera as “Jane the Virgin” actress Gina Rodriguez on two separate occasions.
The account captioned a photo of the Golden Globes nominations presenters with “The @goldenglobes noms are about to start! @HereIsGina @ChloeGMoretz @ImAngelaBasset #DenisQuaid #Golden Globes.” But eagle-eyed users were quick to catch the gaffe:
In another since-deleted tweet, the HFPA wrote, “.@HereIsGina is kicking off the @goldenglobes nominations announcements #GoldenGlobes.”
The 31-year-old Ferrera stars in “Superstore,” while Rodriguez, also 31, took home a Golden Globe last year for Best Actress in a TV Comedy. She was also nominated again this year.
The HFPA did not immediately return a request for comment.
