The 2016 Golden Globes' funniest moment belongs to America Ferrera and Eva Longoria

The 2016 Golden Globes got off to a rocky start. Ricky Gervais's monologue fell flat, and the Channing Tatum/Jonah Hill chaser sucked the air out of the room. We thought we'd be in for a long night (and I understand this may still be a possibility).

Then, like a breath of fresh air, America Ferrera and Eva Longoria walked into our lives and briefly saved us.

"Hi, I'm Eva Longoria, not Eva Mendes," Longoria said.

"I'm America Ferrera, not Gina Rodriguez," Ferrera said.

Their deadpan style made this joke about diversity in Hollywood stick. It also pokes fun at the Golden Globes themselves. The award show's Twitter account got mixed up and called Ferrera Rodriguez when Ferrera announced the nominations last month.

"Thank you, Charo," Longoria said, closing the joke and unofficially starting the Longoria-Ferrera campaign to host the Globes next year.
