Jane the Virgin is nominated for two Golden Globe Awards

The English adaptation of “Juana la Virgen” (Jane the Virgin) has garnered a Golden Globe nomination for the 72nd annual awards show. The wildly successful Venezuelan telenovela, which originally aired in 2002, was so popular it was adapted in English and started airing on the CW network, and is on its way to being aired in remote corners of the world, such as Australia. Latino heartthrob Jaime Camil, along with Puerto Rican actress Gina Rodriguez star in this drama-sitcom that started airing in Oct. 2014. SEE ALSO: 5 Spanish language TV shows adapted in English Set in Miami, the storyline follows the everyday trials of Jane Villanueva, a Latina girl from a strict religious family who mistakenly becomes pregnant after being artificially inseminated in a medical checkup. You could imagine what abuela and mami would say if you lived in a strict Latin household and showed up home with the news! The Golden Globes not only act as a prelude to what you can expect at the Oscars in many ways, but it also serves to honor shows and artists of the small screen–so it’s one of the top honors for a TV show to receive. The show isn’t just nominated in the category of Best Comedy or Musical Series, but star Gina Rodriguez has been nominated for Best Actress in a Comedy or Musical Series. But “Jane the Virgin” has some stiff competition: The wildly successful “Orange is the New Black,” which also features several Latinas in its cast, is also up for the Golden Globe category, as well as “Veep” “Nurse Jackie” and “Girls.” This is a big deal for many reasons. In the words of Bustle.com, “In short, the Golden Globes is one of the best awards shows out there because it’s serious without being over-the-top and it allows a wide variety of stars from movies and television alike to hang out, which keeps everyone interested.” It’s a bigger deal that CW shows rarely get nominated for such serious awards such as a Golden Globe, so we’re sure the producers and cast are ecstatic with the mere honor of being nominated. And it’s got Latinos in its cast! It’s part of the invasion of Spanish shows with enough popularity to be adapted for English TV.
