GEORGE LOPEZ TO HOST THE 2005 PRIMETIME CREATIVE ARTS EMMY� AWARDS

Show to Be Held on September 11 at the Shrine Auditorium

North Hollywood, CA, August 18, 2005 � George Lopez, star of the ABC sitcom George Lopez will host the 2005 Primetime Creative Arts Emmy� Awards on Sunday September 11 from the historic Shrine Auditorium. Spike Jones Jr., producer of the creative arts show, made the announcement today.

In addition, for the fourth consecutive year, E! Entertainment Television will air the awards show as a two-hour special on Saturday, September 17 at 7:00 (ET/PT).

"George is one of today's funniest and most talented television performers," said Jones. "He will keep the show moving quickly with his unique brand of humor and we're all looking forward to working with him.�

Lopez, who is co-creator, writer and producer, as well as star of the George Lopez sitcom, soon begins his fifth season on ABC and is considered one of today's premier comedic talents in the entertainment industry. He was just recognized by Time magazine as one of �The 25 Most Influential Hispanics in America.� Lopez was a cast member and commentator for HBO's hit sports show Inside the NFL for the 2003-2004 season. He was a two time host of the Latin Grammys telecast and a co-host of the Emmy Awards in 2003. In May 2004, Lopez' autobiography Why You Crying? was published and charted in the Top Twenty New York Times Bestsellers List.

Best known for his stand-up comedy, Lopez set an attendance record in December 2004 at the Universal Amphitheater in Los Angeles with seven consecutive sold out performances and more than 42,000 in attendance. In addition, Lopez' Team Leader CD was nominated for a 2004 Grammy Award for Best Comedy album. A native of Los Angeles, who grew up in the San Fernando Valley, Lopez devotes much of this time to charity and has been the recipient of numerous awards, including the 2004 Artist of the Year and Humanitarian Award by Harvard University; 2004 Spirit of Liberty Award by People for the American Way, 2003 Imagen Vision Award, 2003 Latino Spirit Award for Excellence in Television, and the National Hispanic Media Coalition Impact Award.
