Awards season expert Clayton Davis from AwardsCircuit.com joins us to discuss the 2019 Oscar nominations (10:25) and the newly minted Latino Entertainment Journalists Association (1:55), which he founded. I’ll talk to him about what would happen if Roma sweeps the Oscars… will it quiet Latino critics who claim prejudice by the Academy? Also will actress Yalitza Aparicio’s nomination break down doors for indigenous faces in film and TV?

Then we chat with versatile bilingual actor, singer and host Carlos Ponce (38:43) about his new co-starring role in Telemundo’s “Jugar con Fuego”. We talk about attracting a bilingual viewer to Spanish TV, the value of returning to your Latino roots after crossing-over, and why he thinks “Jugar con Fuego” will be a word of mouth hit.
