The 32nd annual Imagen Awards were held in Los Angeles last Friday, celebrating Latinos in television and film — a demographic often overlooked by mainstream award shows.

“Everyone is talking about diversity in Hollywood these days – the truth is before casting decisions are made, before agents can submit their diverse clients, diversity begins in the producer’s offices and in the studios,” said Rita Moreno, who was in attendance.

This year, Diego Luna, Miguel Arteta, Salma Hayek, and Guillermo Diaz were among the many award winners.

The event is often referred to as the Latino Golden Globes by the Hollywood community, and was first started in 1985 by Helen Hernandez and acclaimed industry veteran and show creator Norman Lear.
