Almas celebrate Latino might

Olympians, Darrow, Ontiveros recognized

Eva Longoria had more than half a dozen wardrobe changes during her hosting stint at the Alma Awards on Sunday at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium, providing co-host George Lopez with a chance to mock her.

“I remember when you had one dress and you would turn it inside out and those things that looked like chicken would fall out of your dress,” Lopez quipped.

As part of her duties, Longoria updated the audience on Latino developments such as Apple’s Spanish-speaking Siri.

“Great, Latinos need another woman telling them what to do,” Lopez responded.

Tender moments in the award show included a tribute to the late Lupe Ontiveros and a lifetime achievement award to Henry Darrow. Hispanic Olympians were recognized, including Danell Leyva, who brought a box onstage so he could be closer to the height of the other athletes.

Kudocast will air Friday on NBC.
