Sometimes, taking on a cultural stereotype is the best way to smash the expectations of an audience, and create an entirely new paradigm. In other words, if you’re a hot body like Sofia Vergara, who is smart, enterprising, and ambitious, you use what God gave you to establish your brand, and then you get down to the real business of creating your empire with other latina powerhouses. If you think that Vergara’s assets are all about her body, think again. Here are some things you should know about this spitfire that makes her one of the ‘biggest’ personalities Hollywood has seen in recent years.
She Has Multiple Major Acting Nominations
For all her va-va-voom, Vergara is a very gifted comedic actress whose timing and ability to hold a laugh are impeccable. Audiences and critics have noticed her work as Gloria Delgado-Pritchett on “Modern Family,” the ABC hit on which she stars. Vergara has been nominated for four Emmy Awards as Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013. She has also received four Golden Globe nominations for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role from 2011 to 2014, and has earned two ALMA Award nominations and a Critics Choice TV Award in 2011. Far from just being a gorgeous latina, Vergara is a ‘made’ actress, validated by the Godfathers of the TV Academy.
