Prior to this morning's announcement of the 2016 Golden Globe Awards nominations, some Twitter users were shaking their heads when the Golden Globes' official Twitter handle mistook 31-year-old actress America Ferrera for Jane the Virgin star Gina Rodriguez. Ferrera was one of four presenters reading off the nominations in Beverly Hills, California, though two of the Golden Globes' initial tweets identified her by 31-year-old Rodriguez's Twitter handle.
".@HereIsGina is kicking off the @goldenglobes nominations announcements #GoldenGlobes," one tweet read alongside a photo of Ferrera at the podium.
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association apologized to both actresses on Thursday for the tweets, which have since been deleted.
"What occurred this morning was an unfortunate error. Our sincerest apologies to both America and Gina," the HFPA said in a statement to ET.
Despite the mix-up, Rodriguez still has plenty to celebrate. She was nominated for a second time for a Golden Globe for Best Actress in a TV Series - Musical or Comedy for her role in Jane the Virgin, an award she took home at this year's ceremony.
"Speechless gratitude. @goldenglobes," Rodriguez tweeted on Thursday.
