Lovers, sirens, scoundrels, desperadoes, and fiery beauties—Latino actors have brought a powerful spirit to Hollywood films. From the classical beauty of Dolores del Rio to the too-hot-to-handle sexiness of “Mexican Spitfire” Lupe Velez, from the smoldering screen goddess Rita Hayworth to the multi-Academy Award winning Anthony Quinn, Latino talents have shown incredible range and versatility. In recent years, Javier Bardem, Antonio Banderas, Penélope Cruz, Robert Rodriguez, Guillermo del Toro, Alfonso Cuarón, and Alejandro González Iñárritu have ignited box offices, claimed awards and entertained millions of movie-goers. From celebrity personalities and supporting characters to writers, directors, behind the scenes artisans, it has come time to recognize Latino filmmaking talents for their contributions to the movies. Like the changing face of America, Latino filmmakers demonstrate a new voice in cinema.
