MJ Rodríguez is the first trans actress to win a Golden Globe
Last night the Golden Globes most unusual in history. The prizes of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association They have gone to a second level by being carried out without celebrities passing through the red carpet, without awardees present and without being retransmitted by any channel. The reason is none other than the great image crisis they go through after the accusations of bribery and lack of diversity among their winners.
After the accusations of racism, the awards for the trans actress stand out Michaela Jae Rodriguez and The Underground Railroad de Amazon Prime Video -focused on the story of a black slave-, who prevailed over the favorite Easttown.
MJ Rodriguez has received it for his work in pose. The series, which premiered in 2018 and is available on Netflix, is set in the city of New York in the 1980s and focuses on the lives of gay black people from the underground scene. His character is that of White, a young woman who receives a positive diagnosis in the disease of HIV and becomes the tutor of several young people LGTBIQ + orphans.
The reaction MJ Rodriguez after the award
"This is the door that opens another for many talented young people”, He has written in his networks to celebrate the award. "They will see that all this is more than possible, they will see that a young black Latina from Newark, NJ, who had a dream [has made it come true], to change the minds of others with love. Love wins. To my young babies LGTBIQ +, we are here, the door has been opened so that we can reach the stars!". MJ Rodriguez She was also unleashed and radiant in a video on Instagram Live, in which he dedicated his triumph to “the many and varied colors of the rainbow throughout the world”. And it was not long before he received congratulations on Twitter of companions of pose as Angelica love ross or from the co-creator of the series steven canals.
The truth is that it is not the first time that the actress has made history in awards of a category similar to these. She did so last summer, after becoming the first transgender performer to receive an award nomination. Emmy in one of the main categories. It only had the precedent of Laverne Cox, which was also nominated for her work on Orange Is The New Black, although it was in the category of guest actress.
The discrediting of the Golden Globes
The first ceremony of the Balloons it was in 1944 in the studies of 20th Century-Fox and recognized the achievements of this industry produced in 1943. In this edition the stars of Hollywood have refused to participate and the NBC has canceled the broadcast of the gala, which has only been broadcast on the internet. The Hollywood Foreign Press AssociationThe award-winner has long been under fire for accusations of racism and taking bribes he has received. This year there has been no red carpet, no accredited press, no great outfits, no televised ceremony followed by millions of viewers. The list of winners was read in an austere act that could only be followed by the organizers' website.
The problems for Golden Globes they started over a year ago. Some foreign journalists in Hollywood They denounced that they were not allowed to enter the association, of less than 90 members, which organized the awards. The newspaper Los Angeles Times He uncovered what many already knew: that some of the associates received bribes to nominate films and series. The most flagrant case was when a group went to Paris free in a luxury hotel paid for by the production company of the series Emily in Paris.
But what definitely raised the alarm was that none of the members of the association was black. That was the finishing touch for a Association which Hollywood has not forgiven the racist bias in these times. Now the association has expanded the membership on non-racist criteria, but the changes are still not enough. Actors like by Tom Cruise they have returned the prizes and the chain NBC has canceled its broadcast, for which it paid 60 million dollars.
It depends on the radical changes that the organizers end up making that this year is a parenthesis or that the Golden Globes may eventually disappear.
