Sometimes it can take audiences a while to embrace a new show, its characters and its many quirks. But sometimes, a show becomes a fan favorite from its very first episode, earning a dedicated following in just under an hour. The latter is exactly what happened to Jane the Virgin, who took home the People’s Choice Award for “Favorite New TV Comedy” last night.
In between watching the show and hanging out with Iron Man, star Gina Rodriguez made sure to take some time to let all of the “Warriors” out there know just how much all of their love and support means to the cast.
Backstage after the show, the Golden Globe nominee thanked everyone for giving the Jane the Virgin cast and crew a chance to “shine and show up and do the best [they] can and continue to work hard.” Aw, Gina, you shine plenty bright on your own!
And while some of us might have struggled to get back into the swing of things after the holidays, Rodriguez revealed that she'll have a little extra motivation this year: "I go back to work tomorrow, so I'm gonna do it with a lot of love because of y'all, because of all the fans. Thank you so much."
Looks like all of that love is mutual!
