Sara Ramirez was recognized for her role as Callie Torres on Grey's Anatomy with a nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series while Selena was recognized for Outstanding Performance in a Youth/Children's Program (Series or Special) for her work on Wizards of Waverly Place. Even Dora the Explorer got some love with a nod for Outstanding Children's Program.

Our personal favorite new artist Bruno Mars caught the NAACP's attention last year as well and was nominated for Outstanding New Artist while Fergie and the Black Eyed Peas were recognized for their efforts with a Outstanding Duo, Group or Collaboration.

Zoe Saldana was nominated for Outstanding Actress in a Motion Picture while Benjamin Bratt's movie, La Mission, was recognized as one of the Outstanding Independent Motion Pictures of 2010.

Mariela Rosario,

I'm a raging opinionista and I love to share my ramblings on everything from pop culture to food to stuff that makes me laugh & cry! I've worked in all types of media (TV, film, print) and was previously the online editor at Latina magazine before joining Mamás Latinas. On most nights you can find me working my way through my library of cookbooks or playing with my puppy Lola (my only child so far). I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
