Playing 2015 Golden Globes: Gina Rodriguez Made Us All Cry With Her Incredible Acceptance Speech

Someone bring us all of the tissues because we're bawling our eyes out after Gina Rodriguez's acceptance speech.

We hoped, and prayed, and crossed our fingers and toes that this moment would come, and now the actress that stole our hearts last fall has been rewarded with a Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Comedy Series.

The Jane the Virgin star beat out four comedy A-list actresses — Lena Dunham, Edie Falco, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Taylor Schilling — to take home the very first Golden Globe win for The CW. (How amazing is this?!)

To make matters even more heartwarming, the 30-year-old actress delivered the most eloquent and emotional speech of the night -- watch it in the video above.

After navigating the long route to the stage, the first-time nominee and winner began a very breathy, but endearing speech as she tried to keep the tears at bay. "Thank you, God, for making me an artist," she said.

After thanking the higher-ups at both CBS and The CW, the star thanked Jane the Virgin's executive producer Jennie Urman and the rest of her cast. "I am nothing without you," she added.

The brunette beauty continued, "Thank you to my mom and my dad who taught me to dream big and to never stop dreaming."

Rodriguez, who has been an active voice for the Latin community, also took a moment to acknowledge her fellow Latinos. "This award is so much more than myself, it represents a culture that wants to see themselves as heroes," she smiled.

With a flustered smile and tear-brimmed eyes, Rodriguez ended her speech beautifully saying, "My father used to tell me to say every morning, 'Today is going to be a great day. I can and I will.' Well, Dad — Today is a great day. I can and I did."

Congratulations, Gina!
