Going into the 90th Academy Awards we weren’t expecting to see much in terms of Latino recognition. Yes, Guillermo del Toro’s Shape of Water had the most film nominations, but other than a couple of other nods, Latinos had largely been shut out. However, even with such poor odds, Latinos took every chance they had to rep for la cultura.
Here are the TK moments Latino pride was on full display at the Oscars.
Rita Moreno rocking the same dress from her 1962 Oscar win for Anita in “West Side Story.”
It was a dope reminder of Latina excellence.
