Gina Rodriguez of “Jane the Virgin” took home her very first Golden Globes award. Read on to learn more about this scoop.
She first stole our hearts when her show “Jane the Virgin” premiered on The CW, and since then, a lot of women, as well as young girls, look up to her as their role model when she broke the stereotype. Rodriguez was a first-time nominee in the comedic heavy-hitters category along with Julia Louis-Dreyfuss, Lena Dunham, Taylor Schilling and Edie Falco.
And how did she feel when “Breaking Bad’s” Bryan Cranston opened the envelope and called her name?
“When they said my name I was like ‘Don’t trip. Thank you God. Thank you God. Don’t trip. Don’t forget anybody’s name. who are you going to forget? Don’t forget anybody’s name – was that Oprah? That was Oprah! – Oh my God. Don’t trip. Breathe. You do have mascara that doesn’t run. You’re going to be fine, and wow – what a blessing,’” she said, as published on Yahoo! TV.
This marks her first Golden Globe award, and she offers her victory to her home network, The CW, and to the whole cast and crew of “Jane the Virgin,” especially to Jennie Snyder Urman, the show’s executive producer.
Rodriguez’s first season is not over yet, but she already left a mark. We see great things ahead for this woman and the show as well.
“Jane the Virgin” will return on Jan. 19, 2015 on The CW.
