It was a good evening for all, at the 18th Annual National Hispanic Media Coalition (NHMC) Impact Awards Gala. Roselyn Sanchez (Devious Maids) and Lisa Vidal (Being Mary Jane) were the evening’s masters of ceremonies.

This year’s awards recipients were; actors Melissa Fumero (Brooklyn Nine Nine), Jon Seda (Chicago PD), Carlos Ponce (Cristela) and Golden Globe winner, Gina Rodriguez (Jane the Virgin) for Outstanding Performance in a Television Series. Director of A Book of Life, Jorge R. Gutierrez accepted the Outstanding Direction in a Motion Picture award. Beatriz Acevedo of MiTú, Inc., a media company and digital multi-channel network operator, was giving the first Outstanding Innovation in Social Media award.

The evening’s most emotional moment came when actor/director Andy Garcia gave a special tribute to his dear friend, actress Elizabeth Peña who passed away last year.
