Gina Rodriguez Wins Golden Globe, Gives Amazing Speech

Star of Jane the Virgin, Gina Rodriguez, won the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a TV Series Musical or Comedy. Rodriguez was obviously excited (and so were we) about her win, and she undoubtedly gave one of the best speeches of the evening. "This award is so much bigger than myself. It represents a culture that wants to see themselves as heroes," Rodriguez said through tears. "My dad used to tell me: 'Today's a great day -- you can and you will,'" she added. "Well, Dad, today's a great day, and I can and I did!"
