#MovementMondays RITA MORENO
Rita Moreno is an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony winning Puerto Rican-American actress, dancer and singer. She is one of 12 performers to have won all four-major annual American entertainment awards.  She has won numerous other awards, including the Presidential Medal of Freedom, America’s highest civilian honor. Moreno has broken new ground for Latino’s in the field of entertainment through her career which has spanned over 70 years. From her work in The King and I, The Electric Company(which earned her a Grammy), Oz, to her current appearances in Jane the Virgin.  Currently, she is can be seen starring in Netflix’s reboot of the Norman Lear sitcom One Day at a Time. She told The Hollywood Reporter how quickly the cast began to feel like a real family, possibly because they were all Latinos. “But here's what's brilliant about the writing,” she said. “There is a beautiful balance that takes place so that the [non-Latino] audience isn't left out. The writers room is like the U.N. There are gay writers, Latinos, Asians — everybody is in there.” In 1961, Moreno also made history as the first Latina to win an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her performance as Anita in the film version of West Side Story. In an interview with NPR, she remembers comedian Liz Torres telling her that she watched the awards ceremony that year at her place in Spanish Harlem, “And she said when my name was announced the place went up in smoke. There was screaming and yelling and hugging and jumping up and down and people yelling out the windows, 'She did it! She did it!' in Spanish and in English…A friend of mine said to me, ‘You know what they were really saying? We did it. We did it.’” One Day at a Time has wrapped Season Two and we can not wait to see what Rita does this season! With the Globes and Sag awards being void of Latinx actor nominees, I vote for Rita for her work on One day at a Time. 🙌🏽
#ANNIHILATION trailer is out now. From the insane brilliance of Alex Garland (director of Ex-Machina) and lead by the incredible Natalie Portman. (Oh and me) #Feb2018
#MovementMondays Here’s to all the Latino 2018 Golden Globe nominees!! Congrats to the Mexican director Guillermo Del Toro, whose film “The Shape of Water” leads the 2018 Golden Globe list with 7 nominations including Best Motion Picture, Best Screenplay, and nomination for Del Toro for Best Director!! Congrats to the cast/crew of “Coco,” that was nominated for Best Animated Motion Picture & Best Original Song. The Disney/Pixar film, starring an all Latino cast, is set in Mexico during Dia De Los Muertos (Day of the Dead), it has broken box office records in Mexico and has been #1 at the U.S. box office for three weeks. Congrats to the Argentinean born-Chilean filmmaker, Sebastian Lelio, for his film “A Fantastic Woman” nominated in the Best Foreign Language film category.  Congrats to Mariah Carey, of Afro-Venezuelan descent, for her song “The Star” being nominated for Best Original Song from the film The Star.  Congrats to the Brazilian director, Carlos Saldanha, for the film “Ferdinand” racking up a nomination for Best Motion Picture - Animated that is set to premiere this Thursday. (Which I happen to also be in! 🙌🏽👊🏽)Honestly, I would have loved seeing more Latinx in all categories but until we exist in those spaces it will be hard to get nominations. So until then (producing hard even as I type) let’s celebrate what does exist and brings us both pride and joy in our community! Siempre Pa’lante.
