The most boring Golden Globes awards in history is currently underway, and between the shiny gowns, questionable Ricky Gervais roasts, and unfortunate lack of drunk celebrities, Eva Longoria and America Ferrera have an important announcement to make: They are not, in fact, Eva Mendes and Gina Rodriguez.

While presenting the award for Best Actor in a TV drama, Eva Longoria and America Ferrera, currently starring in network comedies Superstore and Telenovela, respectively, announced their names, then swiftly reminded the audience that they were not the mother of Ryan Gosling's child, nor the star of Jane the Virgin.

Before calling them onto the stage, host Ricky Gervais even managed to throw in a Donald Trump joke, which implied that America's "future president" couldn't wait to "deport them." Watch the very important announcement below.
