“The Good Place” actress Jameela Jamil walked the red carpet for the 76th annual Golden Globes on Sunday, which took place at The Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles, California. But those watching the coverage on E! who are unfamiliar with her character may have been confused.

When Jamil appeared onscreen during E!’s red carpet coverage, she was listed as Kamilah Al-Jamil.

Kamilah is the sister of Tahani Al-Jamil, Jamil’s character on “The Good Place.”

Most people thought the misnaming was a clever joke; Tahani is known for being vainglorious and desperate for approval, while her sister Kamilah is successful and widely beloved. The two sisters are constantly in conflict and Tahani struggles with living in her sister’s shadow.

But an individual with knowledge of the situation told INSIDER it was a mistake. E!’s Nina Parker reportedly addressed and corrected it on the air.

As many fans of the show pointed out, the misnaming would be Tahani’s worst nightmare – which makes the mistake all the more ironic and egregious.

Others, however, were unsure whether it was a mistake borne of lazy research.

Some people were simply confused.

Jamil had a good sense of humor about it.

INSIDER requested comment from E!.

The Golden Globes is airing at 8 p.m. EST tonight on NBC.

This story was updated with Jamil’s response.
