After last year’s award show the Hollywood Foreign Press Association garnered backlash for its ethical and racial issues. This prompted the association to announce an overhaul of its memberships as they seek to diversify. It also prompted NBC to drop them leaving the association without TV coverage. But, the association refused to cancel and instead held the event on Twitter.
However unusual the Golden Globes were this year a very special moment came out of it for actress Michaela Jaé Rodriguez.
MJ Rodriguez took to Instagram to reflect on her win and the positive impact it will have on marginalized communities.
“This is the door that is going to open the door for many more young talented individuals,” Rodriguez wrote. “They will see that it is more than possible. They will see that a young Black Latina girl from Newark New Jersey who had a dream, to change the minds others would WITH LOVE. LOVE WINS. To my young LGBTQAI babies WE ARE HERE the door is now open now reach the stars.”
