Awards Watch: ALMA Winners 2008

The winners of the 2008 ALMA Awards were revealed last night, and our Ugly Betty reined supreme, picking up three awards, including the Entertainer of the Year Award for Betty Suarez herself, America Ferrera.

Other notable TV winners include actors Edward James Olmos (Battlestar Galactica), Jorge Garcia (Lost) and sexy soap stud Kamar de los Reyes (One Life to Live), plus a special award for High School Musical 2 director Kenny Ortega.

On the movie side, Alejandro Gomez Monteverde's Bella picked up the prize for Outstanding Performance of a Lead Latino/Latina Cast in a Motion Picture, while Patricia Riggen's Under the Same Moon (La Misma Luna) was honored with a Special Achievement Award for Outstanding Spanish Language Motion Picture.

Created in 1995 by the National Council of La Raza (the largest national Latino civil rights and advocacy organization in the US), the ALMA Awards promote fair, accurate, and balanced portrayals of Latinos in the entertainment industry.
