Longoria is an avid proponent for immigration reform and recently teamed up with Obama’s reelection campaign. Longoria was nominated this year for an ALMA Award for favorite movie actress in a drama/adventure, and will also be co-hosting the ceremony with George Lopez that airs Friday, Sept. 21 on NBC. Fun Fact: Longoria was Miss Corpus Christi 1998.
Great Actors...Great Mention...I would have loved to see them mention Luis Guzman....look him up if you don't know who he is..his roles are not major but he can caryy a movie...sure he is an ugly f*^( but a great actor!!!
Glad to see this list. People forget how Hispanics (and Latinos) were the first "minority" group to break into American cinema with some very talented stars. Here's hoping that we continue to take over Hollywood with the exotic nature that only Hispanics can produce.
I think the Spaniards on the list consider themselves European and not Latinos.
The term "Hispanic" denotes the relation each respective country has with Spain. Therefore, it is perfectly adequate for this list. Had it actually said "Latino", only then would your argument would have been valid. Hispanic includes anyone from a country that speaks Spanish or Portuguese.
What about Jessica Alba and Michelle Rodriguez?
I agree that the writer must be young. The honorable mention actors include many of the truly talented and award winning actors and should have been listed first.
This list is not completed, Carmen Miranda, Sonia Braga, Morena. Where are Them?
I'm suprised that no one mentioned the legendary sex symbol Raquel Welch (born Raquel Tejada)....I think you could say she "broke in" to Hollywood.....
Obviously the people putting this list together are under 30 to leave out the above STARS and Ricardo Montalbán, Rita Hayworth, among others! Kids!
@lingospan - Check out slides 35, 36 and 37. They include all of the artists you mentioned and more! Thanks for reading.
no Antonio? wow...snub.
"Selena" wasn't Jennifer Lopez's debut, she had already done several movies and Tv shows. What about Clifton Collins Jr.? Michael Peña? Anthony Quinn or Rota Moreno, both Oscar winners? I would mention them before Lopez or Longoria.
*Rita Moreno. Stupid autocorrect.
Whatever the heritage, celebrities are always the same: some are truly talented; some are not. That includes this list.
