Operator: Ladies and gentlemen thank you for standing by and
welcome to the ALMA Awards on MSNBC conference call. During
the presentation all participants will be in a listen-only
mode. Afterwards we will conduct a question and answer
session. At that time if you have a question please press
the 1 followed by the 4 on your telephone. If at any time
during the conference you need to reach an operator please
press Star 0. As a reminder this conference is being
recorded Thursday, October 9, 2014. And I’d like to turn the
conference over to Danielle Lynn, Media Relations Manager at
MSNBC. Please go ahead.
Danielle Lynn: Hi. Thank you everyone for joining us. With
us on this call we’re delighted to have our ALMA awards
host, Eva Longoria as well as Delia de la Vara from NCLR and
ALMA’s producer Flavio Morales. And because time is limited
and we do have a lot of outlets on the line today I’d like
to ask for everyone to please only ask questions about the
ALMAs and that we limit one question per outlet so that we
can get to everyone . Before I turn this over to Ms. De la
Vara to tell you a little bit more about the show I want to
remind you to tune into the ALMAs on MSNBC at 10:00 pm
Eastern, 7:00 pm Pacific on Friday night.
It will be immediately followed with an After the Alma
Special. Delia do you want to take it?
Delia de la Vara: Yes thank you. Thank you all. My name is
Delia de la Vada. I’m vice president for National Council of
La Raza, the largest national Latino civil rights and
advocacy organization in the United States. I’m also one of
the producers of the 2014 NCLR ALMA Awards and on behalf of
our president and CEO Janet Murguia and the National Council
of La Raza I want to thank you all for joining us today.
NCLR is the organization behind the ALMA awards. We created
the award show in 1995 as a complement to our work
advocating for Latino families and the Latino community in
the United States and to honor Latino contributions to film,
television and music. Although we started the show in 1995
this year in particular marks a special year as it marks the
fifteenth presentation of the show so a little bit of a
quinceanera that we’re highlighting and celebrating
throughout the show and you’ll hear more about that from our
We are live this year as Danielle mentioned on MSNBC. We are
also live on Mun2 and we’re excited to be working with Phil
Griffin and his team there at MSNBC. Through the NCLR Alma
Awards partnership we look forward to a long-lasting
relationship that brings increased Latino presence and
perspective to news coverage on the issues of the day.
We’d also like to give a special thank you to the Comcast
NBC Universal family and David Cohen who has guided this
partnership and engaged many other partners and platforms
under the Comcast NBCU umbrella to support the ALMA awards
including telemundo.com, as I mentioned Mun2 as well as
extended programming on MSNBC and other digital platforms
including the After the ALMAs with Alex Wagner on MSNBC, Mu2
and Telemundo as well.
The NCLR ALMA awards celebrates the achievement of Latinos
in the entertainment industry but we’re also taking a moment
to bring a focus to the causes and issues these individuals
are passionate about and that makes perfect sense for an
organization that values service to communities like NCLR.
We also want to give special thanks to our executive
producers, Eva Longoria who has been a true friend and a
long-time supporter of both NCLR and the ALMA awards both as
mentioned earlier as co-host of the show but also most
importantly for us lending her hand in rolling up her
sleeves as executive producer and helping shape and revamp
and bring the show forward.
And of course we want to thank Mario Lopez, another good
friend of NCLR’s who is our co-host for this year. NCLR is
about opening the doors of opportunity and as much as we
celebrate what happens in front of the camera we also seek
to promote opportunities in the entertainment industry
behind the camera as well and we’re very pleased to be
working again with Latino-led Big Vida Entertainment and the
collective experience of the executives, Flavio Morales,
Sergio Alfaro and John Ehrhard as well as the diverse
production team they are bringing to the project.
In short the ALMA awards are going to be - we know they’re
going to be a great show, great viewing this year and we
encourage you to tune in on October 10. And that’s all I
have from NCLR. I think I’ll turn it back to you Danielle.
Danielle Lynn: Yes we’re now ready for questions so if you
want to go ahead and send those over.
Operator: Thank you. Ladies and gentlemen if you would like
to register for a question please press the 1 followed by
the 4 on your telephone. You will hear a three-tone prompt
to acknowledge your request. If your question has been
answered and you would like to withdraw from your
registration please press the 1 followed by the 3 and if
you’re using a speakerphone please lift your handset before
entering your request. One moment please for the first
question. And our first question comes from Jeanne Jakle
with San Antonio Express News
Jeanne Jakle: Hi. Thank you for this call. This question is
for Eva Longoria. As you know your adopted city of San
Antonio is highly Latino and we are always big supporters of
the ALMA awards here but I was wondering if this year people
in San Antonio can look for more of a San Antonio connection
of any kind like a performer or a presenter or a nominee or
anything like that that I can talk about?
Eva Longoria: Hi how are you. Good to hear your voice. Well
your San Antonio connection is me.
Jeanne Jakle: I know that. (Unintelligible).
Eva Longoria: Yes and you know last year we had Sebastian de
la Cruz on so that was a really big proud moment for San
Antonio and everybody whether you live in San Antonio or Las
Angeles or Chicago or Florida or New York I feel there’s
something for everybody in the ALMA’s, in this award show.
I’m constantly surprised at how many people are from Texas
once I dig deep enough to go what, you’re from where?
And so we want to make sure that this is an all-inclusive
show celebrating all the contributions that Latinos are
making towards portraying positive images in television,
film and music. So for me living in San Antonio as well and
having so many strong ties there I feel like I am always
representing not only San Antonio but the State of Texas and
not only the State of Texas but Latinos everywhere.
Jeanne Jakle: Okay thanks Eva.
Eva Longoria: You’re welcome.
Operator: Our next question comes from Suzanne Lanoue with
TV MegaSite. Please go ahead.
Suzanne Lanoue: Good morning. I was wondering-- why do you
think that the ALMA awards continue to thrive and be so
popular more and more each year?
Delia de la Vara: Who is that question for?
Suzanne Lanoue: Anyone can answer.
Delia de la Vara: Go ahead somebody.
Danielle Lynn: Yes this is Danielle. This is Danielle with
NCLR. We’ve been very committed to it. The organization, our
founder (unintelligible) had a vision for a show like this
that was needed. It was actually developed out of a report
that identified that there was a lack not only of roles and
opportunities for Latinos in entertainment and media to tell
our stories but that the portrayals were not accurate.
And so I think people support the show and tune into it
because it’s missing from their TV lineup. They want to see
a celebration of what our contributions are across the
spectrum and one of the things I hear a lot in the feedback
from our viewers -- online and after the show -- is how
proud our viewers feel about being able to see themselves
reflected on TV.
They bring their families out. It’s a big family friends
event or night for them to celebrate because it’s not often
that we see so many positive examples of the work being done
in television and film and the contributions that are being
made throughout the music industry by Latinos and seeing
that demonstrated as part of the American fabric, the
American culture, that it’s not a separate thing, it is part
of who we are in the country. And I think those
contributions and being able to see that in a public and
accessible way is one of the things that keeps people coming
back for more.
It’s also a place where talent can come and regroup with
each other and support each other. I think Eva and some of
the other talent that we have at the show have often said
it’s a little bit of a reunion -- knock on wood -- because
everybody is working and busy and the ALMA awards are a
place for them to celebrate in person as much as we
celebrate across the country.
And that’s another special thing for us to have moved the
show into Hispanic Heritage Month so it really is part of a
national celebration during Hispanic Heritage Month and I
think those are a couple key reasons that keep people tuning
in and then obviously it requires support so our advertisers
and our partners like Comcast NBCU see also value and
opportunity in working as partners with us to bring this
type of programming and enhanced type of programming --
diverse programming -- through those different platforms in
television and through cable and digital as well.
Suzanne Lanoue: Well thanks. I look forward to them.
Danielle Lynn: Thank you.
Operator: Our next question comes from Jay Jacobs with
popentertainment.com. Please go ahead.
Jay Jacobs: Yes hi. I know that Eva and the NCLR have been
very politically active. I know the award show is
celebrating the arts but will the show also do anything to
help raise awareness about the very important elections we
have coming up in about a month and getting people out to
Danielle Lynn: Absolutely. We are absolutely going to be
reminding people to get out and vote and how important their
vote is. This is a very big platform we have with MSNBC and
every year that we’ve had the opportunity to remind people
of their civic duty -- whether it was the presidential
election or mid-term elections we definitely take advantage
of having this audience available to us and so we will use
that because at the end of the day the show is produced by
NCLR which is an advocacy group and so this is one of their
main missions to make sure that not only are we represented
in entertainment but throughout every sector of what this
country has to offer and so we want to make sure that we do
get that message out.
Jay Jacobs: Great thank you.
Operator: Our next question comes from Karen Moul with SciFi
Vision. Please go ahead.
Karen Moul: Hi everybody. Thanks for being on with us today.
The lifetime achievement award this year will go to Charo.
Eva you may have been a little young to have watched her
television career in the 70's. but I was wondering if you
could speak to as a performer yourself what Charo meant to
you and means to you today.
Eva Longoria: Yes. I do remember Charo because she was my
father’s favorite. But I just remember thinking her of being
a Lucille Ball and we’ve done a lot to really remember all
of those people who came before us, honoring Linda Ronstadt
before and all of these pioneers -- Rita Moreno -- who
really paved the way for all of these people that will be on
stage on Friday night and so it’s a big honor to be able to
recognize her and that’s one thing that we do as producers
of NCLR is we kind of really look at the people on whose
shoulders we’re standing on and making sure we applaud them.
Karen Moul: I’m looking forward to seeing her especially.
Thank you very much.
Eva Longoria: Yes.
Operator: Our next question comes from Angela Dawson with
Front Row Features. Please go ahead.
Angela Dawson: Hi Eva. I had a question. You’ve hosted an
award show before. I think it was the MTV Europe Music
Awards. I’m just wondering do you ever get butterflies still
and will it help that you’ll have your friend Mario Lopez up
on stage with you?
Eva Longoria: Yes I always get nervous. I actually am not a
fan of hosting. I’m not a fan of being myself. I’d rather be
a character and say lines that are written for me as another
person so hosting for me definitely makes me very nervous
but it is great that I’m doing it with my great friend
Mario. We have such shorthand and such an energy between us
because we’ve known each other for so long and also he’s
just great. He’s great at that stuff so I kind of just lean
on him and throw everything to him as he’s the professional
Angela Dawson: Great thank you.
Eva Longoria: You’re welcome.
Operator: Our next question comes from Aaron Sanchez with
NBC News Radio. Please go ahead.
Aaron Sanchez: Hi. My question really is twofold. One, we
often talk about what we need to do further as a Latino
community but can you speak on what the ALMA awards has been
able to do and achieve even within the last year from the
last award show and then my second question I have to throw
in there is because when are we going to see a longer show
because there’s just too much fit in that one tiny little
Delia de la Vara: Danielle?
Danielle Lynn: Sure. This is Danielle with NCLR. I’ll take a
stab at both of those I guess. The ALMA awards is an
entertainment show and as the show I think what we’ve been
able to do over the course of the past shows and each year
over year is a couple things. One like I mentioned in my
opening remarks Big Vida, look at opportunities to engage
professionals, experts behind the scenes to bring diversity
to the production, to give people opportunities and have
them work on the ALMA awards but also expose them to other
potential business, other potential contracts and diversify
And maybe Flavio can speak a little bit more to that with
his crew but I think the other platform that the ALMA awards
offers is being a stage for emerging talents as much as what
Eva mentioned. The combination we look at is being a
platform for emerging talent as well as recognizing those
who have come before.
The ALMA awards were a platform for Shakira before she was
the Shakira we know of now, for Jennifer Lopez, for
Christina Aguilera. The ALMA awards stage was a stage that
was crossed before they hit their broader US platform. So it
has been a milestone and we take that very seriously. We
look very closely at the talent that are coming up and try
to be as inclusive of folks that might not have the big name
right now but are probably going to be the next Eva
Longoria, the next Michael Pena and we want to make sure
that we’re cultivating that opportunity as well and focusing
on the strong talent that we have right here right now.
Flavio do you want to speak to...?
Flavio Morales: No and again I think on every facet. One
thing is the people that are receiving an award and
presenting and then just the behind the scenes. Being able
to be on the production side and find so many great Latino
talent like whether it’s writers, lighting designers, stage
direction, directors, so it’s a big movement and I think
that it’s interesting NCLR and Eva were very passionate
about that. They were champions to bring us onboard two
years ago so it’s more than just the one-hour broadcast I
Danielle Lynn: Absolutely. And in terms of a longer show
yes, that’s a struggle the past few years. It’s a financial
struggle as much as an opportunity to try to find a window
where we can have more airtime so we can offer more and
present more awards. We have a pre-show live streamed on
telemundo.com so we’re presenting some awards through the
live pre-show and then we’ll have an opportunity for some of
the honorees and other friends of NCLR to be part of the
After the ALMAs show.
So it’s also looking at what are some other platforms and
how can we extend the presence of the ALMA awards or the
talent that we’re celebrating in other venues as well and
not just have this one time a year but how can we look at
extending these stories and celebrations throughout the year
and in other platforms as well.
Aaron Sanchez: Thank you. Last year was fantastic. I enjoyed
every minute. I’m going to enjoy every minute this year.
Danielle Lynn: Thank you.
Operator: Our next question comes from Stephanie Piche with
the Red Carpet Report. Please go ahead.
Stephanie Piche: Hi thank you. This question is for anyone.
How did you select the 15 moments to highlights from the
past 15 years of the shows because there are so many great
Danielle Lynn: Yes there are a lot of great milestones. We
looked at a list of folks who have been past honorees, who
have been a part of the show either as presenters or
attended and support even if they weren’t presenters. It was
difficult to whittle down but we’re also looking at folks
who are able to be with us that evening to help us promote
and help us add a little bit more to our red carpet
opportunity so they can be additional spokespeople and
ambassadors and be part of the show even when as Aaron
mentioned earlier it’s such a tight one-hour program.
So it was an opportunity to help bring in some of the
friends and partners who have been with us over the past 15
shows. There are a few in there that have not been honorees
but are close partners and allies of NCLR in other
initiatives but related to entertainment and media. So it’s
a combination. Most of them are past ALMA awards honorees
and then a few of them are NCLR partners around an
entertainment or media initiative that we have with them.
For example Fatima with the voice of Dora the Explorer is
actually a broader partnership with NCLR around early
childhood education and the new Dora - the new voice of Dora
that is being launched this year. So we had her as part of
our annual conference but for the most part they all have a
direct tie to the ALMA awards as having come for past I
don’t know maybe six, seven or more shows or been an actual
honoree. So they already are very familiar with NCLR’s
history and the ALMA awards’ history and can speak to that
very comfortably. And that’s how they were selected as our
Stephanie Piche: Excellent thank you so much.
Operator: Our next question comes from (Joseph Nease) with
MSNBC. Please go ahead.
Joseph Nease: Hi my question is for Eva. I was thinking
about the younger audience that will be watching the show
tomorrow and you were on (unintelligible) earlier today in
terms of the shifting demographics in this country. What do
you think or what message do you have for young Latinos who
want to be a performer like you or who hope to achieve great
work and activism like you’re doing. What is your message
Eva Longoria: Well I think one of the great things again
about the ALMA awards is that it’s produced by NCLR and NCLR
has over what - is it 300 Delia, 300 affiliates?
Delia de la Vara: Yes.
Eva Longoria: Yes. Over 300 affiliates across the nation and
so luckily throughout the show we have a lot of different
platforms that anybody who is watching -- especially if
you’re a young person -- will tell you exactly how to be
engaged and get involved whether it’s political activism or
farm worker activism or education. There’s so many avenues
and resources that NCLR has for young people to get engaged,
for anybody to get engaged but I think it’s such an amazing
resource that is available for anyone and I think that’s
very different from your question of how do they
(unintelligible) star. I think every time I get the question
of somebody saying I want to be famous, that’s the end goal
I said well you know you could be a famous dentist, you
could be a famous lawyer, you could be a famous astronaut.
There’s many ways to be famous. It doesn’t have to be
through acting or singing. And so I think that’s why we put
a really big effort into recognizing those humanitarian
efforts on our show of people who have done amazing things
that are as we call civilians outside of the industry.
Joseph Nease: Great thank you so much.
Operator: And our final question from today is coming from
(Courtney Hordray) with ohsogray.com. Please go ahead.
Courtney Hordray: Hi. Thanks again for talking with us
today. So what presenters do you think are going to get
people the most excited and people should be most excited to
tune in for?
Delia de la Vara: Flavio?
Flavio Morales: Well I think we have this really great
moment with a musical performance from a band from Mexico,
Café Tacuba. They performed in Coachella; they’ve been on
the Tonight Show and Jimmy Kimmel. They’re celebrating their
25th anniversary as a band. I think that’s going to be a
We are going to be honoring for me personal NFL favorite
Tony Gonzales. And I think one moment that we did last year
and it worked so well was taking a moment to really show our
contributions to this country and we have this great sort of
American heroes moment that I think is - I’ll leave it at
that. It’s going to be a very special moment that everyone
has to tune into and I think that it really strikes a chord
back to we are a part of the fabric of America and we have a
long, rich history not just in entertainment so we want to
be able to share.
So we have 44 minutes to set together a really great show
and then it gets extended over to the MSNBC post-show. But I
think there’s going to be a lot of great moments.
Danielle Lynn: Okay great. Thank you to everyone for joining
us today. I just wanted to let you know there will be a
replay number and transcript that will be available tomorrow
and that will be sent to everyone including the team. And in
the meantime if you have any questions just let us know and
I hope everyone has a great day and make sure to tune into
MSNBC on Friday night.
Operator: Ladies and gentlemen that does conclude the
conference call for today. We thank you once for your
participation and ask that you please disconnect your line.
