Nominated in Actress

About Gina Rodriguez

Gina Rodriguez and Jane The Virgin have captured hearts across America with a slightly innocent (and sometimes provocative) portrayal of a modern-day Mary. Actress, rapper, and self-proclaimed “lioness,” Gina is the Latin-American sweetheart we’ve been waiting for both on screen and on social media. While we often see Gina’s funnier side when she’s playing with Snapchat filters, perfectly parodying viral dance videos, and palling around on set, she’s also a valuable source of political information, encouraging her fellow Latinos to make a difference in this country by voting, and even interviewing Barack Obama (!) about common voting myths.
