While both talented Asian American women, the two celebrities have very distinct looks and do not look even remotely identical.

However, Getty Images apparently had problems telling each of them apart during their coverage of the 90th Annual Academy Awards on Sunday night.

The stock photo website’s blunder, in which they captioned Tran’s image with Nagasu’s name, was posted by Twitter user Jackie Wong of RocketSkating.com:

Could it be just an honest typo error? Possibly. But then again, how often do they actually mislabel Asian celebrities?

Twitter users couldn’t help but express their frustrations:

While the site has yet to comment on the error, it did caption Tran’s photo correctly in their gallery.
