Ingrid Goes West producer and star Aubrey Plaza, Nicholas Gonzalez (The Good Doctor, How To Get Away With Murder), and Disney’s Oscar frontrunner Coco have been tapped as honorees at National Hispanic Media Coalition’s 21st Annual Impact Awards.

Univision CEO Randy Falco, Spider-Man: Homecoming actor Tony Revolori and actress Diane Guerrero round out this year’s awards recipients during the ceremony, which highlights and recognizes the work of Latinos in the entertainment and media industry.

Past recognition has gone to Rosario Dawson, Zoe Saldana, America Ferrera and Robert Rodriguez.

The 32-year-old civil rights non-profit organization advocates for Latinos in front and back of the camera. NHMC exist to challenge policymakers and influencers to eliminate barriers for Latinos to express themselves and be heard through every type of medium.

The org recently held a protest outside of the recent annual Oscar nominees luncheon to highlight the under-representation of Latinos in the film industry and the absence of Latinos from this year’s acting nomination list. The org plans to hold another protest the day before the Oscars.

The ceremony will take place next Friday at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel.
