Actors Jenna Ortega and Pedro Pascal have made a lot of people proud with their leading Emmy Award nominations, showcasing the rising prominence of Latino actors in the entertainment industry. Now, their remarkable achievements have garnered well-deserved attention and signify a significant step towards Latino/e representation on screen.
Ortega’s nomination in the Best Comedy Actress category for her role in “Wednesday” has captivated audiences and critics alike. Ortega has become the second youngest Emmy nominee in history, as highlighted by The Hollywood Reporter. The first Latina to receive this nomination was America Ferrera for her role in “Ugly Betty.”
Nevertheless, her talent, versatility, and ability to bring depth to her characters have earned her widespread acclaim and solidified her as a rising star in the industry. From her witty personality in “Wednesday” to the famous dance that went viral on TikTok, there is no denying how much power Ortega has.
Equally deserving of recognition is Pedro Pascal, who has secured a nomination for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series for his performance on “The Last of Us.” Pascal also earned nominations in the Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series for his appearance on “Saturday Night Live” and in the Outstanding Narrator category for his role in “Patagonia: Life on the Edge of the World.” Pascal’s impactful portrayal has left an indelible mark on viewers, showcasing his range and undeniable talent. His nomination, alongside Ortega’s, demonstrates the growing presence and influence of Latino actors on the prestigious Emmy stage.
