The current awards-show season is a great opportunity to follow our ALMA celebs, their wins, their speeches, and their fashion. This month, between the People’s Choice Awards and the Golden Globes, we’ve had a lot to talk about!
Past ALMA awardees and nominees made quite a splash at last week’s Golden Globes. From the tongue twister delivered by Antonio Banderas in Spanish as he shared the stage with Salma Hayek to the bilingual acceptance speech led by Sofia Vergara and her Modern Family producer, it was apparent that Latino entertainers owned the spotlight and proudly embraced the cultural diversity that they bring to the table.
Beyond gracing the stage, Latino entertainers made their mark on the red carpet in high fashion. Sofia Vergara led the way in midnight blue Vera Wang. Gucci was the couture house of choice for many of our stars, draping Salma, Jessica Alba, and Berenice Bejo in standout originals.
The Golden Globes this year, perhaps more than ever before, embraced our Latino talent and demonstrated that they are just as much part of the fabric of American entertainment as their non-Hispanic co-stars. This underscores the spirit of ALMA, showing how diversity strengthens our country and how inclusion strengthens the entertainment industry.
