"The 2009 ALMA Awards" will bring a new approach to this year's show.

This year the ALMA Awards will also update the format of the show with some modifications to the nominations process in an effort to be more inclusive of the broad array of talent throughout the industry.

The show will focus on "Year in Review" categories in film, television and music. New categories have also been added to recognize the influence of special segments of the entertainment industry that are shaping positive perceptions of the Latino community, such as emerging young talent (under 18), talent behind the scenes who make the on-screen magic happen, and a sports category in acknowledgment of the increasing integration of the worlds of sports and entertainment.

"The 2009 ALMA Awards" production team includes executive producers Janet Murgu�a, Eva Longoria Parker, David Chavez, Bob Bain and director Michael Dempsey.
