Gina Rodriguez, Jane The Virgin – Nominee, Best Performance by an Actress in a TV Series – Musical or Comedy

“The show is not about her being a virgin,” declares Rodriguez at an HFPA press conference.  “It’s about a family, these three generations.  And about finding herself and transforming and going from a young girl to a woman to mother.”   Whether fans agree or not, Jane has brought Rodriguez her third Globe nomination, all of them for this show now in its third season, with its title modified to drop the virgin part, since Jane is now married.  It is based on a Venezuelan telenovela and tells the story of a religious young woman who took a vow of chastity till marriage who becomes artificially inseminated by mistake.  While not abandoning its telenovela roots, the melodrama is tempered by the humor and complexity of its writing and has long been a critics favorite.
