Gina Rodriguez, Golden Globes

Holy upset!

Gina Rodriguez, adorable star of the CW's Jane the Virgin, shocked the Golden Globes by winning Best Actress in a Comedy Series over vets like Edie Falco and Julia Louis-Dreyfus! And judging by her reaction at her name being read aloud, she was just as shocked as everyone else!

"Wow. Thank you god for making me an artist," Gina, who was visibly emotional and moved by the win, said when she took the stage. After thanking her bosses at the CW and at Jane the Virgin, she moved onto her two families: her fellow castmembers and her actual family.

"Thank you to my entire cast. I am nothing without you," she gushed. "Thank you to my mom and my dad who tell me to dream big and never stop dreaming. Thank you to my sisters and my siblings...for being the biggest role models."

While Jane the Virgin lost the Golden Globe for Best Comedy Series to Amazon's Transparent, Gina knew that standing there holding that statue was more than enough validation.

"This award is so much more than myself," she said, getting choked up. "It represents a culture that wants to see themselves as heroes. My father used to tell me to say every morning: ‘Today is going to be a great day. I can and I will.' Well, Dad. Today is a great day. I can and I did."

Gina's big win comes on the same day that the CW announced that it was renewing Jane the Virgin for a second season. Basically, the gorgeous 30-year-old actress is having the best damn day ever.

Congrats, Gina!
