Rodriguez was awarded a Golden Globe Award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series for her role as motherly character Blanca in the third and final season of the FX series. With her victory, she became the first transgender actress to win a Golden Globe for a major performance.
“This door will open for more talented young people,” she wrote on Instagram. “They’re going to see that it’s impossible. They’re going to see a young black Latina girl from Newark, NJ, who has a dream to use love to change people’s minds. Love wins.”
“To my young LGBTQAI baby, here we are, the doors are now open, now to the stars!!!!!!” she continued.
This year’s Golden Globes was a low-key ceremony — NBC declined to air the award after the Los Angeles Times reported that there was a lack of diversity within the mysterious Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which holds the award, and raised ethical questions about financial interests.
Rodriguez didn’t show up at the awards ceremony — no celebrity attended. Although the ceremony still took place at the Beverly Hilton, there was no audience or red carpet event. Studios also did not formally submit titles for consideration when HFPA members selected nominees.
HFPA instead announced Rodriguez’s victory on Instagram, Twitter.
When it premiered in the summer of 2018, “Pose” had the most transgender series regulars of any scripted TV show. Also starring Indya Moore as the hopeless romantic angel, Dominique Jackson as the wayward Elektra Abundance, and Angelica Ross as the tragic Candy, both seasons one and three were nominated for “Outstanding Series.”
Rodriguez was also nominated for a 2021 Emmy for playing Blanca, becoming the first transgender actress to be nominated for an Emmy for a major performance.
