And red carpet season has begun.
The 72nd Golden Globe Awards served us laughter, realness, and a bit of awkwardness. Nonetheless, the night produced some major moments for minorities.
Here were our favorite moments:
Gina Rodriguez’s Win
The Jane the Virgin star delivered an emotional speech after winning Best Actress in a Comedy Series. Not only was this a big win for The CW Network, but also for the Latino community as it is one that is infamously underrepresented in Hollywood.
“This award is so much bigger than myself. It represents a culture that wants to see themselves as heroes,” she said. “My father used to tell me, every morning, to say, ‘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.”

Maggie Gyllenhaal’s Acceptance Speech
Maggie won the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Miniseries or TV Movie. Her acceptance speech on ‘real women’ in the media was a standout portion of the evening.
“I’ve noticed a lot of people talking about the wealth of roles for powerful women in television lately. And when I look around the room at the women who are here and I think about the performances that I’ve watched this year what I see actually are women who are sometimes powerful and sometimes not, sometimes sexy, sometimes not, sometimes honorable, sometimes not, and what I think is new is the wealth of roles for actual women in television and in film. That’s what I think is revolutionary and evolutionary and it’s what’s turning me on.”
Not only was the award presented by the legendary Prince, who was the last Black artist to win the award, but John Legend and Common accepted the award with class and a powerful message. Yes Oprah, Common’s timely speech also gave us the feels.
