The Academy Award Goes to...

Well right now we don't know but there's a chance a Latino film and actor can grab one of the biggest awards in acting...The Academy Awards. In A Better Life, Demián Bichir portrays Carlos Galindo, an undocumented Mexican gardener fighting to create a better life for himself and his son. In the Supporting Actress category, Bérénice Bejo (Argentine/French) could take the Oscar for her supporting role in The Artist.

In all honesty, it doesn't really matter who wins. Although cheering on Latinos is always good. There's even a group on Facebook which demands more Latinos in film and TV. The description pretty much sums up how the creator feels: We have had enough! Latinos are moving up! We are tired of your images and your looks! We are more than Maids, Thugs, Janitors and Drug Dealers. We are Doctors, Lawyers, Teachers, Senators, but most important we are here and you will accept us!
