THR's #NextBigThing 👑 GINA RODRIGUEZ 👑 just scored her first Golden Globes nomination 🙌

You turned down Lifetime's Devious Maids on principle. What else have you turned down?
It was about my journey and the stories that I wanted to tell and the change I wanted to create. Television and film are fictional reality to reflect our daily reality. I didn't connect to Devious Maids. I didn't want that to be my coming-out. I also passed on this hip-hop film — I can't remember what it was called but it hasn't come out — because it was really negative in the sense that it portrayed Latinos in a real negative light, and they were throwing a huge chunk of change my way, and I just couldn't do it. And thank God. I wouldn't have changed anything because this is what I was meant to do. This is supposed to be my journey. Whether this journey lasts one season or 10, I'll take what I can get, because these are the stories that I want to tell.


Y A S!!!!!!!!!!! MI REINA. i love how unashamedly she talked on twitter about wanting to be nominated bc she knows she deserves it. im all here for a confident and talented Latina getting recognized <3
