2nd Aug 2004
Marc Anthony, Jennifer Lopez, Luis Miguel, Ricky Martin, Thalia, Juan Gabriel and Oscar de la Hoya Among Nominees for Final Selection
The biggest names in Latin show business, fashion, and sports will be honoured on the first annual “Premios Juventud” (Youth Awards). The electrifying 2-hour entertainment special will be broadcast from Miami, the party capital of the world. It will air live on the Univision Network (NYSE:UVN) on Thursday, 23rd September from 9-11 p.m. ET/PT (8-10 p.m. Central/Mountain).
Recognising popularity and overall appreciation in five distinct areas – Film, Music, Sports, Fashion and Pop Culture – the “Premios Juventud” nominees were selected based on a nationwide poll conducted among a representative sample of Spanish-language television’s younger viewing audience. From 2nd-22nd August, Hispanic America will then cast their votes online and determine the final outcome.
Far from your typical award show, “Premios Juventud” will give awards in 22 unconventional categories in tune with today’s Hispanic youth. It’s one young party no one will want to miss. Marc Anthony and Thalia lead with 13 nominations each; Anthony competes in categories such as “CD to Die For” and “He’s Got Style” and Thalia in “She’s Totally Red Carpet” and “My Idol Is,” among others. Jennifer Lopez follows with 12 nods in categories such as “Show Stealing Actress” and “Dream Chick.” Other multiple nominees include Luis Miguel with 11 nominations and Paulina Rubio and Ricky Martin with 9 each.
The popular Puerto Rican actor/singer Chayanne follows with 8 mentions in categories such as “He’s so Hot!” and “Best Moves,” while the ever popular Mexican singer/songwriter Juan Gabriel makes the list with 7 nominations, vying for awards in categories such as “All Over the Dial” and “Catchiest Tune” for his international hit “Siempre en mi mente” (Always on My Mind).
“Harry Potter,” “Shrek 2,” “Amores perros” and “El crimen del Padre Amaro” were nominated for “All-time Best Flick,” while Alex Rodriguez, Sammy Sosa and Oscar de la Hoya rival for “Hottest Male Athlete.” Nominees for Hispanic youth’s most “Dynamic Duet” include Christina Aguilera with Ricky Martin, Marc Anthony with Jennifer Lopez and father Vicente Fernandez with son Alejandro Fernandez. In what promises to be the most talked about category, “Hottest Romance” of a real-life couple, the contenders include Luis Miguel and Myrka Dellanos, Niurka Marcos and Bobby Larios and Thalia and Tommy Mottola.
