“Jane the Virgin” star Gina Rodriguez was the 2014 Golden Globe winner for Best TV Comedy Actress, but now that awards dress (see above) is going to the prom. Rodriguez made headlines recently after a fan, Jessica Casanova, reached out on Twitter admiring Rodriguez’s Golden Globe attire, and Rodriguez unexpectedly agreed to make her dream come true by giving it to her for her prom. But you know what would be even better than a Golden Globe dress — an Emmy dress.
No one knows if Rodriguez would ever extend the same offer to another lucky teen, but she deserves an opportunity to do so, doesn’t she? So TV academy, how about giving the actress two, three or four Emmys so she can showcase more looks. First, though, the Emmys would have to overlook their bias against the CW network, which has kept multiple critically acclaimed performers out of the running for TV’s top honor — from Kristen Bell in “Veronica Mars” to Rodriguez.
So let’s give Rodriguez an Emmy so another teen might have a chance to fulfill their prom dreams — and also because she deserves it.
