Oops: Golden Globes Announcement Includes Embarrassing Gaffe

Dec 10, 2015  •  Post A Comment

This morning’s announcement of the Golden Globes nominations didn’t quite come off without a hitch. EW.com reports that the Globes’ Twitter account confused two Latina actresses, misidentifying its own presenter, former “Ugly Betty” star America Ferrera, as Gina Rodriguez.

Rodriguez, the star of “Jane the Virgin,” is one of the nominees for best actress in a TV musical or comedy.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association sent out a tweet on its official account saying “@HereIsGina is kicking off the @goldenglobes nominations announcements #GoldenGlobes,” along with a photo of Ferrera making the announcement.

Twitter followers quickly responded with a torrent of corrections, and the erroneous tweet was deleted.
