PG_79AAAN7012306.jpgSo not only did numerous Spanish-speaking folk get nominated for Academy Awards, but Salma Hayek was also the announcer of the nods. (Members of the Minuteman Project everywhere are furious!)

Funny thing is that the pictures of Penelope Cruz and Alejandro Gonzalez Iñarritu are both eyeing Salma. You so know Salma wanted to shout out ‘Go Penelope! Go Alejandro! Go Mexico!’

ab.jpgAB Quintanilla is having his fourth child and he says that this baby will be born in Mexico.

If it is a girl, he is naming her Selena Flor Quintanilla after his sister.

He also took a chance during an interview on La Oreja to say the following to Cruz Martinez and Alicia Villareal:

“I want to send a message to my ex friend Cruz. Keep your head up Cruz, you have a great woman by your side, I don’t think she is lying to you, understand, but we’ll see with time and congratulations because you are going to be a father again.?

Huh? Why is he being so nice to Cruz? Either way, Felicitaciones!
