The ALMA Awards

Did anyone see the ALMA Awards last Friday?

The NCLR ALMA Awards were created in 1995 to promote fair, accurate, and balanced portrayals of Latinos in the entertainment industry. NCLR is the National Council of la Raza and ALMA means soul or spirit. In the case of the awards, the presentations were made to those entertainers who best portrayed the “true spirit” of the Latino people.

EVA LONGORIA PARKER, Executive Producer and host, did an excellent job of keeping the show on schedule and at the same time manage to do about 10 wardrobe changes. Actually, she was quite delightful (and Tony was in the audience).

There were several performances and many awards presented. These are some of my favorites:
Chevy Entertainer of the Year:
America Ferrera, Ugly Betty

Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series:

Jorge (Hurley) Garcia, LOST

NCLR ALMA Humanitarian Award:

Youth Advocacy Award:
Pamela Jimenez Cardenas

Special Achievement Award –Outstanding Director of a Made-for-TV Movie:
Kenny Ortega “High School Musical 2” (Disney Channel)

Trailblazer Award Special Achievement in Music:
Linda Ronstadt

The show was 2 hours long and I actually sat through the whole thing, very much unlike me. It seems I’ve always got ants in my pants, but not this time. I felt such a sense of pride seeing “mi gente” recognized for their achievements.

If you didn’t catch the awards show and would like to see a complete list of winners, who BTY include Charlie Sheen's alter ego, Carlos Estevez, go here: ALAMA Awards.
Mexican Word of the Day: Choose
You like my "choose"? They are adidas!

Really cool, Teresa. I was not aware of the ALMA awards, but I'm glad the actors got some recognition. I really like Hurley's character, and Shakira... we'll lets just say her music videos make a teenage boy's head spin :)
