The winners of the 2019 Imagen Awards were unveiled on Saturday night with FX’s groundbreaking series Pose, acclaimed comedy One Day at a Time and Sundance favorite Monsters and Men receiving top honors.
Held at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel, the Imagen Awards was established in 1985 from a suggestion by veteran television producer Norman Lear to encourage and recognize the positive portrayals of Latinos in media. The winners were judged and selected in 18 categories by an independent panel of entertainment industry executives and Latinx community leaders.
Pose tied with Magnum P.I. for Best Television Drama while actress Mj Rodriguez took the award for Best Actress for playing the role of Blanca on FX series created by Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Steven Canals. The popular reboot of One Day at a Time from Gloria Calderon Kellett and Mike Royce took the award for Best Comedy. On the film side, Monsters and Men received the award for Best Feature Film as well as Best Director for Reinaldo Marcus Green and Best Actor for Anthony Ramos.
The Imagen Foundation also honored Chairman of Endemol Shine Americas and CEO of Endemol Shine North America’s Cris Abrego with the prestigious Imagen President’s Award and Luisa Leschin with the Norman Lear Writer’s Award.
