It’s award season.

With the glitz and glamor of Hollywood, Hispanics are celebrating their own accomplishments at this year’s Golden Eagle Awards.

The awards show serves as a fundraiser and awareness generator for Nosotros. It honors Latinos, who creates opportunities in front of and behind the cameras—not to mention those who paved the awy for change in the industry.

The ceremonies were held at the historic Montalban Theater in Hollywood last week.

Here are the honorees:

  • Edward James Olmos for the Lifetime of Impact Award
