Alma awards

Posted on June 6, 2006. Filed under: Celebrities & Entertainment |

Did you catch the Alma awards last night? I’ve never actually heard of it before, but this is it’s 7th year running. I’m so happy that I rushed through my homework to see it.

The opening dance number with Eva Longoria, Roselyn Sanchez, Constance Marie, Carmen Electra and Paulina Rubio—Destiny’s Chicas, if you will—was steaming, wasn’t it? Eva Longoria was the host and the executive producer of this year’s show. Her role in the show explains for the non-Latino celebs like Carmen Electra, Jessica Simpson and Michael Douglas on the stage, which portrays the various races which knits the quilt of U.S. society. Eva did a wonderful job in taking the ALMAs to a whole new level and in raising the bar for Latinos.

The ALMAs was such a great portrayal of Latino culture and achievements in the U.S. It wasn’t cheap, tacky or ghetto at all. And they didn’t use the batteries of the smoke detectors for the mics, as George Lopez once did. lol. That man is just too funny. After seeing this award show all I gotta is: It’s about damn time. 🙂
