Wow, now this is not good. During the Golden Globe nomination accouncements Dec. 10, the official Twitter account for the Globes tweeted that American Ferrera was Gina Rodriguez not once but twice! Um, WRONG!
The Golden Globe nominations almost went off without a hitch. As American Ferrera was about to take the podium to kick off the nominations, the official Twitter account for the Golden Globes tweeted out the most embarrassing thing to it’s over 580,000 followers — yikes! They mixed up America and Gina Rodriguez. Even though they deleted the tweets, they will forever live on in the world of the internet. We’re sure whoever is responsible is hiding under their desk. Check out the tweets and tell us what you think!
The tweet has now been updated with America’s handle but this is what the first tweet originally read:”The @GoldenGlobes noms are about to start ! @HereIsGina @chloegmoretz @Imangelabassett #DennisQuaid #GoldenGlobes.” And just when you thought they couldn’t make it any worse, they followed it up with this tweet: “@HereIsGina is kicking off the @goldenglobes nominations announcements.” That’s when Twitter absolutely exploded with angry tweets from individuals shocked over the mixup!
Fans immediately took to Twitter to express their shock and disgust at the Golden Globes for letting something like this happen.

God bless America Ferrera. She's, erm, definitely not Gina Rodriguez. #GoldenGlobes

Surprisingly, the Twitter account has yet to issue an apology and they simply updated the tweets. Meanwhile, Gina was nominated for Best Actress In A TV Series, Comedy. She didn’t address the mixup either because she was too busy celebrating her nomination and she tweeted: “Speechless gratitude.” We are so excited for Gina and love her on Jane The Virgin. She actually won a Golden Globe in 2014 in the same category so we bet she has a good chance this year.
HollywoodLifers, are you shocked by this mixup?
