Michaela Jaé Rodriguez has made history after her win at the Golden Globe Awards, which was held privately at the Beverly Hilton Hotel last night.

The 31-year-old American was awarded Best Actress in a TV Drama for her portrayal of Blanca Rodriguez-Evangelista in the FX series Pose, which concluded with its third season last year.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association, responsible for the awards, later announced that it made her the first transgender actress to win a Golden Globe in its history.

She had been nominated in the category alongside Uzo Aduba, Jennifer Aniston, Christine Baranski, and Elisabeth Moss, with Rodriguez describing them as “phenomenal.”

Responding on Instagram, the excited actress and singer wrote in a post: “OMG OMGGG!!!! 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. They will see that it is more than possible,” the award-winner continued.
