ALMA Goes Academy

posted by: Samantha Ferm – January 23, 2012

 
Last week was a big week in the entertainment world: Academy Awards Nominations Announcement Week!
 
Along with everyone else, we were also eager to see whose acting skills garnered those much-desired nominations and were thrilled to see 2011 ALMA Awards nominee Demián Bichir be recognized for his touching portrayal of an undocumented father raising his son in East LA in the film A Better Life. Big congratulations to Mr. Bichir, and the best of luck at this year’s Academy Awards! If you recall, A Better Life won the “Favorite Movie” category at the 2011 NCLR ALMA Awards, and is truly a poignant story. Make sure to rent it if you haven’t done so yet, and support Mr. Bichir in his outstanding nomination!
 
Puss in Boots, with ALMA Awards winners Antonio Banderas and Salma Hayek, is also up for the “Animated Feature Film” Academy Award. Congrats to them and the entire team behind Puss in Boots. We wish them the best of luck.
