Naya Rivera Wins Double Alma Awards for Playing Santana

Naya Rivera Wins Double Alma Awards for Playing Santana
Tracy E. Gilchrist

Naya Rivera’s sassy lesbian cheerleader Santana may have been conspicuously missing from the show’s fourth season premiere Thursday but Rivera, rocking a Dolce & Gabbana suit, was front and center at the Alma Awards in Pasadena on Sunday.

The Almas, which honor Latinos in entertainment and sports, honored Rivera with two awards, one for favorite TV actress comedy, and the other for favorite female music artist, reports Fox News Latino.

Over the past few season’s Rivera has consistently turned in wickedly funny and heartrending performance as Santana, who’s character struggled with and finally arrived at self acceptance and love about being a lesbian. On top of all the terrific acting she did for the show week after week, she’s also been the musical highlight of many a Glee episode.

So, Congrats to Rivera on her double Almas!
