Gina Rodriguez: History Making Golden Globe Award Winner


Thank you God for Making me an artist.
Thank you to my mom and my dad for telling me to dream big and to never stop dreaming. To my siblings, to my sisters Evelise and Rebecca for being the biggest role models in my life. This award is so much more than myself. It represents a culture that wants to see themselves as heroes. My father used to tell me to say every morning, ‘Today’s going to be a great day. I can and I will.’ Well, Dad, today’s going to be a great day. I can and I did.”                                                                                                                                     — Gina Rodriguez


With those words Gina Rodriguez made history yesterday at the Golden Globes as she accepted her Best Actress in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy award from the Hollywood Foreign Press for her role in Jane the Virgin;  this is the first time in history that a CW show has every been nominated, (Jane the Virgin was nominated for Television Series – Musical or Comedy) let alone have the star win a the Golden Globe!

Prior to the Golden Globes, the CW had announced that Jane the Virgin would be returning for a second season, with their Golden Globe win they must have partying up a storm. However, the reaction to Gina’s win from Latinos in Hollywood is unprecedented and overwhelming.   No other Latino/a winninga Golden Globe has had such an impact as that of Gina Rodriguez’s, because in addition to her win Gina takes every opportunity to always represent her under-represented Latino community.  From press interviews to her acceptance speeches (yes we are confident there will be more), she is never shy about speaking on behalf of her community.

Yes!! So proud of  for winning Golden Globe for Best Actress!   

Proud of my girl hereisgina for winning her award! Way to go…  

Tears of pride & happiness! CONGRATS my dear  for your Golden Globe!!! You are yet one more example of our blossoming community!

My 2nd favorite moment of tonight. (1st being ‘s win).
