Imagen’s Patty Meltdown

Ceremony took place Friday at the Beverly Hilton

Presenters and honorees dusted off their Spanglish for Friday night’s 26th Imagen Awards.

“As a friend, as an hermana, as a proud Latina, I’m proud of you,” said Carmen de la Paz to fellow presenter Elizabeth Espinoza.

De la Paz credited Espinoza with finding Arnold Schwarzenegger’s mistress, affectionately dubbed the “Patty Melt.”

Espinoza said locating her was easy. “I know people in town,” she said. “I got a lot of primos.”

The Beverly Hilton ceremony feted artists making positive depictions of the Latin American community with kudos shaped like miniature glass obelisks.

Among the highlights, PBS prexy Paula Kerger appeared on stage with the Cat in the Hat character.

“I was once told never to work with animals or children,” Kerger said, making an exception for her co-presenter. “My husband was so happy I found another tall man to walk the red carpet with me.”
