The Latin Recording Academy Wins International Emmy Award For 20th Latin GRAMMY Awards Program
Just days after the Latin Recording Academy broadcast its 21st Latin GRAMMY Awards show on Nov. 19, it added an Emmy award to its legacy.
The Latin Recording Academy's 20th Annual Latin GRAMMY Awards, broadcast in Nov. 2019, won for the International Emmy Award's Non-English Language U.S. Primetime Program category; it tied with "Reina Del Sur" Season 2.
"Receiving our first Emmy award brings a new and never felt before sense of joy and makes me extremely proud as the leader of an amazing group of people that works hard to put together The Latin GRAMMY Awards," Gabriel Abaroa Jr., President/CEO of the Latin Recording Academy, said in a statement. "Our incredible team’s dedication, along with our partner network Univision, our talented team of producers, members, nominated artists, hundreds of supporting individuals and generous sponsors, made this possible and I am grateful for the continued trust and support of our Board of Trustees. As we begin our third decade, The Latin GRAMMYs will continue to honor musical excellence and this peer-to-peer recognition is a tribute to the global power of Latin music and its makers."
