Channeling the real-life Selena with this breakthrough performance, J.Lo earned her first Golden Globe nom. Although she lip-synced Selenaâ€™s songs, she did learn how to dance like herâ€”a challenge since prior to shooting, J.Lo was a Fly Girl on In Living Color. J.Lo told Filmscout.com, "Selena was a special person who affected a lot of people.â€¦ Throughout the production, I was amazed by how many people would come up to me and say, 'I knew Selena' and share beautiful stories with me."
