1. Star Wars actor Diego Luna showed at the 2017 Golden Globes on Sunday night with his lifelong best friend Gael Garcia Bernal — who was nominated for best comedy actor for his role in Mozart in the Jungle.
2. Luna was there to present the award for best screenplay next to his Rogue One co-star, Felicity Jones.
3. But when he did, Diego presented the award in both English and Spanish…
4. WHICH WAS A BIG DEAL.
5. And Americans went crazy.
6. But over on Spanish-speaking Twitter, there was a really incredible moment, for many, of national pride.
“You are a mexican that makes me proud of our country, especially in these hard times. @diegoluna_ thank you for the Spanish,” one person wrote.
7. They nominated him for president.
”.@diegoluna_ for President! #GoldenGlobes #GoldenGlobesEnTNT”
8. Even Mexican Soccer striker, Chicharito Hernandez, got all worked up and emotional.
“@diegoluna_ That’s really cool!!!! 🏽🏽🏽🏽”
9. Some viewed it as an important confrontation of discrimination.
“Diego Luna didn’t give a million fucks in Star Wars and spoke in Spanish. In your face, Donald Trump. #GoldenGlobes.”
10. And for others, it was a great step forward in including Mexicans in Hollywood.
“Diego Luna did NOT present best foreign movie… We are advancing so much.”
11. It was a really special moment.
”.@diegoluna_, pure class at the #GoldenGlobes.”
12. And for many, a reminder of the importance of the value of your roots.
“Diego Luna you are beautiful. Such a lovely person. Always proud of your roots, never leaving them aside, don’t stop being who you are @Diegoluna_”
“Diego Luna speaking Spanish. Thank you God so much.”
