Golden Globes 2022: MJ Rodriguez, star of 'Pose' becomes first trans actress to win the award

This is the first Golden Globe for the 31-year-old actress. "We are here, the door is now open now reach the stars," she wrote.

Michaela Jaé "Mj" Rodriguez, made history as she took home a Golden Globe for best actress in a TV drama for her role as house mother and nurse Blanca on the FX show "Pose".

It marks the first time in history a trans actress has won a Golden Globe.

Rodriguez also made history in summer 2021 after becoming the first transgender performer to be nominated for a lead acting Emmy. Rodriguez did not end up winning that award.

While 'Pose' has been hailed for the largest transgender cast in a scripted series and for hiring the first trans woman of color director, the show's stars have been vocal regarding the lack of award recognition they have received.

On Sunday, Rodriguez took to Instagram to celebrate her win.

"Wow! You talking about sickening birthday present! Thank you! This is the door that is going to open the door for many more young talented individuals," she wrote on Instagram. "They will see that it is more than possible. They will see that a young Black Latina girl from Newark, New Jersey who had a dream, to change the minds others would WITH LOVE. LOVE WINS. To my young LGBTQAI babies WE ARE HERE the door is now open now reach the stars!!!!!"

She signed off the post thanking fellow nominees, "To the nominees we are Queens. I'm so happy to share space with you! Each and every last one of you women are phenomenal," she wrote.
