The 2024 Oscars might be more entertaining this year since more Latinos are becoming part of it.  

This year, two prominent Puerto Rican figures are set to take the stage as presenters. The lineup includes none other than Bad Bunny and Rita Moreno, alongside some of Hollywood’s most notable names, such as Chris Hemsworth, Dwayne Johnson, and Jennifer Lawrence, among others. 

Rita Moreno, a trailblazing Latina, captured the hearts of audiences worldwide with her unforgettable performance in “West Side Story,” earning her an Oscar in 1962. Making history, Moreno became the first Latina and only the third person ever to achieve the prestigious EGOT status in 1977. Her presence at the Oscars adds a touch of timeless elegance while reminding the world that she is THAT girl. 

On the other hand, Bad Bunny, the chart-topping Boricua, has been rewriting the rules of music. In 2022, he shattered records with “Un Verano Sin Ti,” the first Spanish-language album to dominate Billboard’s year-end chart and earn a Grammy nomination for Album of the Year. His inclusion in the lineup signifies a new era of global recognition for Latin artists – and Latin music. 

What Else You Can Expect at the 2024 Oscars

Adding to the already exciting lineup, the Academy announced that Becky G, another favorite among the Latino community, will grace the stage with her performance of the nominated song “The Fire Inside” from “Flamin’ Hot.” Becky G, whose hometown is in Inglewood, California, will be bringing her Mexican American heritage to the stage, per usual.  

As you can see, Latinos are getting more recognition in spaces where we’ve been historically overlooked. ¡Enhorabuena! 

Jimmy Kimmel is returning to host the show for the fourth time. The Oscars will be broadcast live from the Dolby Theatre at Ovation Hollywood. You can watch it on Sunday, March 10, at the new, earlier time of 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT.  

Will you be tuning in to support these Latino stars?
