Gina Rodriguez is a virgin—a major red carpet virgin that is. The star of the CW’s Jane the Virgin is nominated for her first-ever golden statue for Best Actress in a Television Musical or Comedy for her role as Jane Villanueva, a young religious woman who becomes pregnant after being artificially inseminated by mistake.
Come Sunday night, she faces some stiff competition: Fellow nominees include veterans like Lena Dunham (Girls), Taylor Schilling (Orange Is the New Black), Edie Falco (Nurse Jackie), and Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Veep). Though experts are predicting Rodriguez for the win, the 30-year-old actress isn’t letting it go to her head. “I’ve been working at these dreams for years,” she tells InStyle, “and I have had high moments and quieter moments in my life.”
