a little different this year, but the 2022 ceremony will still be one for the history books thanks to a historic win by Michaela Jaé “Mj” Rodriguez.Rodriguez has become the first transgender actor to win a Golden Globe in the ceremony’s nearly 80-year history.

On Sunday, January 9, she took home the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Drama Series for her critically-acclaimed performance as housemother and nurse Blanca in the FX drama Pose.Not only is she the first transgender actor to win the award, but it also marks the first Golden Globe win for Pose, which premiered in 2018.This year, the Golden Globes were held behind closed doors, with no nominees in attendance and no live audience and unfortunately, as a result, Rodriguez had to take to social media to celebrate her win.In a lengthy post, Rodriguez gave a special mention to the LGBTQAI community and also gave a shout-out to her fellow nominees: Uzo Aduba, Jennifer Aniston, Christine Baranski, and Elisabeth Moss.Writing on Instagram, she said: “Wow!

You talking about a sickening birthday present! Thank you! This is the door that is going to open the door for many more young talented individuals.”They will see that it is more than possible.
