695240615KC00058_89th_AnnuaLin-Manuel Miranda took his mom as his date for the Oscars.

The Puerto Rican star was up for an EGOT at the Academy Awards on Sunday – he already has an Emmy, a Grammy, a Tony…and was this close to getting the Oscar.

He was nominated for his “Moana” song “How Far I’ll Go.”

His mom, Dr. Luz Towns-Miranda, told “People” that “From the time he was tiny, he was really special. I knew that he would be here one day and I told him, ‘I’m gonna be with you.”

Lin-Manuel said, “I remember my mom – as a kid – saying, ‘When you get nominated for an Oscar, I’m your date.’ That’s such a pie-in-the-sky thing to say. But she sort of always believed, I think she believed even before I did, so I’m thrilled to get to keep that promise.”

That’s a good Hispanic son.

Salma Hayek Attends Oscars With Friend

salma+eugenioEveryone wants to know who Salma Hayek went to the Oscars with.

She didn’t attend with her husband, billionaire Francois Henri-Pinault. Instead, she went with a good friend named Eugenio Lopez.

Nothing strange here…they really are just friends.

If his face looks somewhat familiar, it’s because he recently was Paulina Rubio‘s date at the Grammys.

He’s become the go-to for when the ladies want to leave their hubbies at home.

Ana Patricia Gamez PLN Dress Designer Photoshops Her to Extremes

ana+patriciaAna Patricia Gamez looked beautiful at Premio Lo Nuestro – but it seems her designer still wanted to do some tweaks…to her, not the dress.

The “Despierta America” host walked the carpet in a Nicolas Felizola gown and, we repeat, looked beautiful.

She even posted a photo to share with her fans and it’s the pic you see on the left.

The account for the designer also put up a photo – however, it is heavily heavily photoshopped. It’s the one on the right.

Ana P’s pic is natural and shows her true self…Nicolas’ photo shows her waist taken in drastically and her body made to look extremely thin.

There was no need to touch the photo. She looks beautiful without the retouching.

becky+g+rubiBecky G and Rubi Ibarra, AKA the famous quinceañera, wore very similar dresses to Premio Lo Nuestro.

Normally, this would be a red-faced embarrassing moment – with neither party wanting to draw attention to it. Not Becky!

She took to social media to post a side-by-side photo of the two and said “Great minds think alike. 2 princesas. Las dos princesas pensaron igual.”

We love that Becky G made Rubi feel good about the unintended fashion faux pas…and she’s right, they both look like princesses!

J Balvin and Zion & Lennox Performance Blacks Out

by Latin Gossip Staff on 02.24.2017 - J Balvin, Zion & Lennox

j+balvin+zion+lennoxZion & Lennox and J Balvin performed at Premio Lo Nuestro – but nobody got to see.

The reggaeton stars sang “Otra Vez” and right before it went live on television, the signal appeared to cut out.

Univision’s broadcast went totally black for about ten seconds and the producer presumably made the decision to go straight to a commercial break.

Fans at home were left hanging. The performance was not shown or repeated.
