Frida Cleans Up At Imagen Awards
SALMA HAYEK's well-recieved biopic FRIDA earned three gongs at this year's (03) IMAGEN AWARDS, which celebrate Hispanics in the entertainment industry.
The DOGMA beauty also picked up the Best Actress award for her portrayal of the Mexican artist, and was the recipient of the Imagen Foundation's Creative Achievement Award.
GEORGE LOPEZ was honoured with the Best Primetime Comedy Series award for the ABC programme THE GEORGE LOPEZ SHOW, and the foundation's Vision Award.
When accepting the accolade, he quipped, "I'm proud that (Hispanics are) the largest minority. We have pride in who we are. But I don't know how the census can count us - we hide when we hear them coming."
