America Ferrera and Gina Rodriguez don't look alike, but the Golden Globes mixed up the Latina actresses Thursday morning on its official Twitter account.

As Superstore and Ugly Betty star Ferrera shared the stage with Angela Bassett, Chloe Grace Moretz and Dennis Quaid to announce nominees, the event's Twitter feed identified her by using Jane the Virgin nominee Gina Rodriguez's Twitter handle.

"@HereIsGina is kicking off the @goldenglobes nominations announcements," the tweet read.

It wasn't long before Twitter users flagged the mistake, prompting the Golden Globes account to delete the mistaken tweet.
