2012 ALMA Awards – winners

The National Council of La Raza (NCLR) held their 6th annual American Latino Media Arts Awards (or ALMA Awards) at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium, at a gala hosted by Eva Longoria and George Lopez. The ALMA Awards are held to recognize Latino entertainers and those who promote positive portrayals of Latinos in entertainment.

Patricia Riggen's Girl in Progress led the winners with three awards. It won for Favorite Movie, Favorite Movie Actress – Supporting Role (Cierra Ramirez), and a Special Achievement Award for director Patricia Riggen.

Dean Wright's For Greater Glory had led the field with five nominations. However, it came away empty-handed.

Naya Rivera was herself a multiple-winner. She won Favorite TV Actress – Comedy for her role on Glee . She picked up a second prize for Favorite Female Music Artist.

Winners of the NCLR ALMA Awards were determined online votes in addition to box office, Nielsen, and Billboard rankings, and in consultation with the NCLR ALMA Awards Production Leadership Team.
