This year's Alma Awards again will be hosted by U.S. Hispanic actors Eva Longoria and George Lopez.
The annual awards ceremony will be filmed on Sept. 16. in L.A., and air the following week on Sept. 21. on NBC.
Multiple news outlets have reported that both hosts were in a press conference Monday, and confirmed some suprises, including honoring actress Lupe Ontiveros, who died in July.
"She was a tremendous pioneer and these awards will be special because we get to honor her, show her work and show her family and fans how much we loved her," Lopez said, according to NBC Latino.
