Congratulations NALIPster Gina Rodriguez for Golden Globe Nomination!
The NALIP family is excited and proud to congratulate Gina Rodriguez for her Golden Globe nomination in the category of Best Actress in a TV Series, Comedy or Musical for her lead performance in CW's Jane the Virgin. A well deserved recognition for arduous and talented work, a true representation of the quality of our Latino artists and creators out there.
In 2013 Gina received NALIP's Lupe Award at the Gala function during that year's conference - given to up-and-coming Latino breakout artists. Having also participated in other programs such as NALIP's Latino Producers Academy in the acting segment, and the NALIP 2012, 2013 and 2014 summits we are honored to have Gina be a longstanding member of our ever-growing family.
Growing up in Chicago, Gina started performing at age seven in dance groups and studied at Tisch School of the Arts. She worked theaters in New York and her work in film and TV grew with “Jonny Zero,” “Army Wives,” and “Law and Order”. Gina received great reviews with her breakout performances in Go For It! for which she received an Imagen Award nomination and in the Sundance favorite Filly Brown. We are proud to say that both movies that have been instrumental in her career start were also created by writer/director NALIP members, Carmen Marron (Go For It!), Michael Olmos and Youssef Delara (Filly Brown). The Hollywood Reporter named her the “next big thing” and one of the “top 35 Latinos under 35”.
