Party Shot: Behind the Scenes of the 30th Annual Imagen Awards

The foundation honored everyone from Homeboy Industries’ Father Gregory Boyle to the legendary Rita Moreno

L.A.’s social scene is one fantastic blur. Let’s stop a moment and check out one of my favorite shots of the week:

America Ferrera, Imagen President and Founder Helen Hernandez, Choreographer/Director Liz Imperio, Paula Abdul, and Rita Moreno

What: The 30th Annual Imagen Awards

Where: The Dorothy Chandler Pavilion

Why: The foundation’s aim is to “advance the positive portrayal and number of Latinos onscreen.”

Wow: Aside from Ferrera and Abdul, the show’s 600-plus guest list included celebs like Edward James Olmos (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), Esai Morales (La Bamba), Rico Rodriguez (Modern Family), television writer and author Norman Lear, director Kenny Ortega, and comedian Aida Rodriguez. The special will air on PBS SoCal during Hispanic Heritage Month (Sept 15—Oct 15).
