LOS ANGELES (Variety.com) – Nominations for the 3rd Annual Latino Entertainment Journalists Association (LEJA) Award have been announced with “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom” and “Nomadland” leading the way.

“My Rainey’s Black Bottom” by director George C. Wolfe, won 10 nominations including Best Picture, Best Actor for Chadwick Boseman, Best Actress for Viola Davis, Best Supporting Actor for Colman Domingo, Screenplay on best suited for Ruben Santiago-Hudson, best overall cast, best production and set design, best costume design, better hair and makeup, and better sound.

Chlo? Zhao received the most individual nominations for directing, writing, producing and editing of Searchlight Pictures’ “Nomadland”, the most for all women in LEJA history. Jayro Bustamante has been nominated for Best Film, Director, Original Screenplay and International Feature for “La Llorona”.

Netflix led the studio tally with a total of 42 nominations, and Amazon Studios landed an impressive 14.

“It has been an extremely difficult year for our industry and our Latinx community,” said Clayton Davis, Founder and President of LEJA. “While we are honored to recognize the amazing accomplishments of this film year, our underserved and undervalued people have faced unprecedented challenges. Beautiful and extraordinary films are works of art and we share in their celebration. It is also extremely important that the same diversity that we are starting to see in our entertainment medium is embraced in the journalism industry. It is the responsibility of the studios and their partner publications to find, hire, and host more Latinx voices on their magazine pages and websites. Another dynamic and inclusive year awaits us and we hope not to be neglected any longer. “

It was also announced that Oscar nominee Rosie Perez is the recipient of the 2021 Rita Moreno Lifetime Achievement Award and the 2021 Latin Activism Award, the first person to receive both awards in the same year. Perez played a starring role in Cathy Yan’s “Birds of Prey” earlier in 2020.

Breakout performer Ariana DeBose will receive the 2021 Latin Activism Award after starring in Disney Plus’ “Hamilton” and Netflix’s “The Prom”.

Winners will be announced via social platforms @LEJALatino on Sunday, March 7, starting at 12 p.m. ET.
