Beverly Hills, CA — The National Hispanic Media Coallition turned the spotlight on the achievements of Latinos in front and behind the camera this past February at their 15th Annual Impact Awards Gala in Beverly Hills, California. Hundreds of Latino leaders came together to commemorate the achievements of the Impact Awards’ recipients.
This year’s NHMC Impact Awards honored onscreen talents Cesar Millan, Benjamin Bratt, Michelle Rodriguez, Efren Ramirez, and Aubrey Plaza; director Chris Weitz; and music artist Taboo.
“It’s an honor for NHMC to come together with our friends and supporters to commemorate the work of such brilliant artists who are so instrumental in the promotion of positive Latino images in the media. NHMC is proud to recognize their outstanding contributions to the community,” saif Alex Nogales, NHMC President and CEO.
Comedic actor Rob Schneider and Spanish actress Claudia Bassols – who currently play Rob and Maggie on CBS’s ¡Rob! – were Masters of Ceremony. Oscar nominated actor Demian Bichir made a surprise appearance to hand the Impact Award to friend Chris Weitz who was honored for directing A Better Life.
As the stars came out to play, be honored and commiserate, Moet Champagne was there to celebrate the VIP Latinos in attendance.
Congratulations to all the honorees!
