Our favorite co-hosts are back for another round!
Eva Longoria and George Lopez are set to host the 2012 National Council of La Raza (NCLR) ALMA Awards for the third year in a row. The annual awards ceremony is organized by the organization, which promotes and celebrates Latinos in media. The award show airs Friday, September 21 at 8pm EST on NBC.
When it comes to sharing the stage with the Mexican comedian, Eva mentioned in an interview last year, “George is an amazing co-host – he is obviously the most recognized comedian in our community, so to be able to bring him on board every year not only provides for great entertainment but our chemistry has proven successful and we wanted to continue that relationship and that tone of the show.”
In addition to Eva and George hosting the show, Christina Aguilera will be honored with the 2012 NCLR Special Achievement Award for her philanthropic work and fight against world hunger. The pop star, who has previously won three ALMA Awards, has reportedly raised more than $80 million for the World Food Programme.
