The 95th Academy Awards will showcase the industry’s best talent, and this year, everyone has their eyes on Latina star, Ana de Armas, who is up for Best Actress.
The 2023 Oscars will be held Sunday, March 12 at 8 p.m. ET, and will be hosted by late night host Jimmy Kimmel, who will be hosting the event for the third time.
Latina nominees for Best Actress
Ana de Armas scored her first Academy Award nomination at the upcoming Oscars 2023 ceremony. Armas is up for Best Actress for her role as the fashion icon Marilyn Monroe in Andrew Dominik’s Netflix film, ‘Blonde’.
De Armas is running against two-time Oscar winner Cate Blanchett and her role in ‘TÁR’, Michelle Williams, who has been nominated for four career Oscars, this time for starring in ‘The Fabelmans’, Michelle Yeoh for her role in Everything Everywhere All at Once’, and ‘To Leslie’ star, Andrea Riseborough.
Ana De Armas’ nomination for ‘Blonde’ is the fifth Latina actress ever to be nominated for the award, with the last time being in 2018 when Yalitza Aparicio was nominated for ‘Roma’.
Catalina Sandino Moreno was nominated in 2004 for her work on ‘Maria Full of Grace’, Salma Hayek was nominated for ‘Frida’ in 2002, and Fernanda Montenegro’s 1998 ‘Central Station’ landed her the nomination.
So far, none of the Latina ladies have taken home the trophy.
