The National Hispanic Media Coalition are celebrating some great artists this year. On June 14th, Issa López, Harvey Guillén, Fede Álvarez, and Tatyana Ali will receive honrs at the annual NHMC Impact Awards. It’s nice to see some exceptional genre storytellers in the lineup, including Alien: Romulus director Fede Álvarez and the mind behind True Detective: Night Country, Issa López.

Other honorees include the What We do in the Shadows star, Harvey Guillén, and the all-around great, trailblazing Tatyana Ali (The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air). Ali receiving the Advocacy Impact Award to celebrate her advocacy and policy work in maternal health and reproductive justice.

NHMC continues to honor those behind accurate and positive representation in media. “We are honored to celebrate these powerful figures who represent the present and future of the entertainment industry. This year’s honorees embody where our community is headed and are pushing their industries forward simply by taking up space and using their platforms to uplift other Latine creatives,” NHMC president and CEO Brenda Victoria Castillo said in a statement. “This year more than ever, it is imperative that we continue to celebrate our Latinidad in all aspects of our society, and NHMC is committed to ensuring that our community is recognized – not just at our gala, but in every space.”

Annie Gonzalez (Flamin’ Hot) and Mayan Lopez (Lopez vs. Lopez) are hosting the event, which will also celebrate The Los Angeles Football Club with the Community Impact Award and Tubi for For the People Impact Award.
