Four was the lucky number for Latinos in media at the Golden Globes this year, or should we say unlucky? Gina Rodriguez for her role in “Jane the Virgin,” Gael Garcia Bernal for his role in “Mozart in the Jungle,” Lin-Manuel Miranda for his original song in “Moana,” and Pablo Larraín’s film “Neruda”, were the highlighted Latinos of the night, but unfortunately none of them took the award. There was however a bigger representation when it came to the African-American community. It was great to see recognition of talent and as stated by the National Hispanic Media Coalition, great to see “broken barriers in an industry that has been slow to change“. What does this mean for Latinos and inclusion in the industry; are we making progress, taking steps back or standing still?
