Gina Rodriguez nabs Golden Globe for dreaming big

Gina Rodriguez’s big win at the 72nd annual Golden Globe Awards was everything: her first nomination and her first win. We told you she was one to look out for. We were ecstatic to see how the CW’s “Jane the Virgin” and its two nods played out at the 2015 Golden Globes. SEE ALSO: ‘Jane the Virgin’ shows Latino power at People’s Choice Awards Though the TV show lost to “Transparent” for Best TV Series, Musical or Comedy, we were thrilled when its leading star Gina Rodriguez won for Best Actress in a TV Series, Musical or Comedy, making the whole team proud! The category was filled with popular women in TV, including Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Veep), Edie Falco (Nurse Jackie), Lena Dunham (Girls) and Taylor Schilling (Orange is the New Black), but only one could take the title. Rodriguez was shocked upon hearing her name. An overwhelmed Gina stormed on stage mouthing “Wow, Wow, Wow,” before grabbing the Golden Globe she garnered for her starring role of Jane in the comedy “Jane the Virgin.” In the midst of tears of joy, the Puerto Rican starlet began her emotive speech: “Thank you God for making me an artist.” She went on to thank CBS, CW, her cast and crew, stating “I am nothing without you.” She also honored her loving parents and sisters who accompanied her to the ceremony: “Thank you to my mom and my dad for telling me ‘to dream big and never stop dreaming.’ To my siblings and my sisters for being biggest role models in my life.” The concept of the show, adapted from the Venezuelan series by the same name in Spanish, basically tells the travails of a young woman, a virgin, who accidentally becomes artificially inseminated at a doctor’s office. “This award is so much more than myself, it represents a culture that wants to see themselves as heroes,” she added with true Latino pride. “My father used to tell me to wake up each day and say ‘today’s a great day, I can and I will.’  Well, dad, today’s a great day, I can and I did,” she concluded while holding her globe up high. Following her successful and well-deserved win, Gina Rodriguez became a trending hit on Twitter, having many fans talking of her great acceptance speech. still crying over Gina Rodriguez's acceptance speech at the #GoldenGlobes — Adriana (@Adria6168) January 12, 2015 Gina Rodriguez's speech made me cry.
