The 2015 Golden Globe Awards aired last night. Winners included Common and John Legend for Best Song “Glory” for the film Selma and Best Performance by an actress in a television series (comedy or musical) went to Gina Rodriguez for Jane the Virgin (CW). While many are talking about Common’s moving remarks, some are overlooking the beautiful acceptance speech given by breakout star Rodriguez. Not only is this a first-time win for Rodriguez, but it is also a first-time Golden Globe win for the CW network, which is historic.

The first-time nominee beat out Lena Dunham (Girls), Edie Falco (Nurse Jackie), Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Veep), and Taylor Schilling (Orange Is the New Black) for the honor.

Check out Rodriguez and Common’s amazing acceptance speeches below:
