Gina Rodriguez Golden Globes Win For Jane The Virgin
“It’s like eating red velvet and knowing it’s fat-free and it’s not going to do anything to me,” Gina said about winning her first Golden Globes award for Best Actress in a Comedy Series.
“When I was a little girl I dreamed of this moment, and there’s no better way to tell others that they can win too than by living your dreams. When you dream and follow your dreams you give others the allowance to do it themselves. So for me it’s so wonderful to tell someone else ‘hey, don’t be afraid, go after it, fear only exists between your two ears, go on and take the world. You got this’,” Gina continued.
Gina On Her Golden Globes Day & Dress
Gina not only looked sexy but she felt it as well. She talked about her dress choice saying, “To me it made me feel like I wasn’t trying too hard. I was just being myself and I feel sexy. I know that I can define sexy, when the definition of sexy for me is confidence and strength and independence and class. That’s how I feel today.”
We have always wondered, what does a nominee do the day leading up to the big night? “I woke up at 7:30. I had bagels at the Bagel Broker on Fairfax and Beverly, and it was awesome. I brought some bagels home for my family because my father loves cinnamon raisin bagels, so he was happy about that,” Gina said.
She went on, “The glam squad came over, my boyfriend who is so supportive, my family, the designers came to make sure that my dress was solidly painted on my body today and my glam squad, they’re my friends. They believe in me and they have made me feel confident from the inside out. Anything they do I am happy with because they remind me that beauty comes from within.”
