Jane The Virgin is still up for Best comedy series and Best actress in a comedy series for Gina. Jaime was nominated for Best supporting actor in a comedy series, but lost to Silicon Valley‘s TJ Miller.
FYI: Gina wore a Reem Acra Couture dress, Stuart Weitzman heels and Edie Parker clutch. Andrea wore a Faviana dress, vintage clutch and Roni Blanshay earrings.
The Emmy campaign poster for Jane The Virgin was just released and Gina‘s own words were used for the poster.
“I know it’s ridiculous that I’ve shared so much recently about all these incredible blessings but I share because it’s all of you, my family, friends, Warriors that have gotten me to this place in my career. The support, the love, the encouraging comments, the consistent viewers, that is what has made my dreams come true,” Gina wrote on Instagram.
She continued, “We don’t do anything in this world alone, my hustle is only as strong as my crew. Traditional campaigns have quotes from critics, my studio and network put up quotes from my journey. That just melts my heart. Emmy Season campaign from #CBS and #CW support of #JanetheVirgin and myself. Today truly is a great day. #humbled ????.”
In the mag, the six ladies open up about sexism in the industry, sex scenes, penis bags and why women need to stop apologizing.
Amy on sexism: “I think people hate women. I don’t think they want to hear a woman talk for too long. A lot of people project their mom yelling at them. My [career] has been about tricking people into listening. I’m not saying all men hate women, but there’s such an aggression.”
Lena on the comedy community: “I also hate how the comedy community is so defensive. People are unwilling to learn. There was a big issue a few years ago with Daniel Tosh and rape jokes. But there couldn’t be a civil conversation about it within the comedy community. I’m a sexual-assault survivor, so I would love to sit down and have a totally nonjudgmental conversation with a male comedian who makes rape jokes. But there isn’t room for that.”
Gina on racism: “I don’t believe it’s an issue of hard-core rac- ism [in Hollywood]. It’s lack of being surrounded by a culture. It’s also about what Hollywood finds financially beneficial. So when we show them shows like Jane the Virgin and Fresh Off the Boat. Show them it’s all a good investment. And it’s not about race. When you vilify it, people shut down.”

Gina Rodriguez stops by Late Night With Seth Meyers on Wednesday night (April 22) in New York City.
The 30-year-old Jane The Virgin actress has been taking the Big Apple by storm and also stopped by The View, Sirius XM radio and Huffington Post Live .
“I had a father that would — we would look up at billboards and he would say, ‘That’s one version of beauty. You’re another version of beauty. And she’s a version of beauty. And that girl? She’s another version of beauty,’” Gina shared with HuffPo Live about her healthy perspective when it comes to beauty.
Gina added, “He always said that beauty came from within … and you’re younger, and you’re [sarcastically] like, ‘Yeah, beauty comes from within’ — no, beauty does come from within. I’ve met some of the most beautiful people, and sadly their heart is just not smiling, and that destroys it all. And then other people that aesthetically aren’t considered as beautiful are the most gorgeous people I’ve ever seen in my life.”
FYI: Gina is wearing an Elizabeth and James dress and Kurt Geiger London shoes on Late Night. She is wearing a kate spade new york dress at Sirius XM, and a kate spade new york top on The View.
