Rita Moreno 1
The Puerto Rican icon was actually the first and ONLY Hispanic to have won an Emmy back in 1977. She was awarded Outstanding Supporting Actress for her appearance on The Muppet Show along with Outstanding Lead Actress for her guest appearance on the NBC drama series The Rockford Files in 1978. I should also mention she was the first Hispanic to have won a Grammy award, Oscar, and Tony!
Ricardo Montalban 2
The legendary Mexican actor took home an Emmy for his performance as Chief Satangkai in the ABC miniseries How the West Has Won. And that was just one out of many!
Edward James Olmos 3
You probably recognize him from his role as Abraham Quintanilla in the 1997 flick Selena. But the Mexican actor also won an Emmy for Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for his work in the classic TV series Miami Vice. He played a total badass on that show!
John Leguizamo 5
Kenny Ortega 6
Remember Dirty Dancing? Kenny was the one who choregraphed all those steamy dances. But that's not what the Spanish director won an Emmy for, obviously! He landed awards for the teen Disney movie High School Musical and XIX Winter Olympics Ceremony.
America Ferrera 7
America became the first Latina to win an Emmy for Best Actress in a Comedy Series for her role of Betty Suarez in ABC's Ugly Betty. Hoping Sofia Vergara can make number two this year!
Louis C.K. 8
Funnyman Louis C.K. took home the Emmy for Outstanding Writing For a Comedy Series for his show Louie last September. He's nominated for the same award this year, let's cross our fingers he gets it!
