Latinos nominated

The 2024 Oscars are particularly notable for their significant representation and recognition of Latino talent. Honduran American actress America Ferrera, known for her roles in "Real Women Have Curves" and "Ugly Betty," has been nominated for her part in "Barbie," marking a significant milestone in the industry's recognition of Latino performers.

Joining her in this remarkable year is Colman Domingo, nominated for his role in "Rustin." His nomination is groundbreaking, as he is the first Afro-Latino actor nominated in a major acting category, potentially making history as the first Latino actor to win the best actor category since José Ferrer in 1951.

In the realm of international cinema, Spanish films such as "La Sociedad de la Nieve" and "Robot Dreams" have made their mark among the nominees, showcasing the diverse and innovative spirit of Spanish cinema. These nominations underscore the global reach and influence of Latino storytelling and filmmaking.

Other Latino artists at the Oscars

The music category shines a spotlight on Latino talent, with Mexican-American artist Becky G's "The Fire Inside" from "Flamin' Hot" being nominated for Best Original Song. This highlights the community's impact across various aspects of filmmaking.

There are also Latino artists among the presenters. The list so far includes Puerto Rican megastar Rita Moreno, Anya Taylor-Joy, Mexican born Lupita Nyong'o, Ferrera herself, and none other than the king of urban Latin music, Bad Bunny. El Conejo is also celebrating his 30th birthday on Oscar Day, so he may do something special.

There is also hope that Cuban American actress and entrepreneur Eva Méndes walks the red carpet with husband Ryan Gosling, who is not only nominated, but will also sing his hit "I Am Ken" on the Oscar's stage, as it is also one of the nominated for best song.
