Eugenio Derbez & Jacky Bracamontes to Host 2019 Latin American Music Awards

For the first time, Mexican artists Eugenio Derbez and Jacky Bracamontes will host the 2019 Latin American Music Awards.

Internationally acclaimed comedian, actor, and producer Eugenio Derbez and actress and hostess Jacky Bracamontes, one of the most prominent celebrities in Latin American entertainment, will host, for the first time ever, the 2019 Latin American Music Awards.

With their indisputable talent, these two Mexican artists, who have starred in successful international films and television series, will bring the “Latin AMAs” awards ceremony to life, to showcase performances by artists in English and Spanish.

As the creator of the series “La Familia P. Luche” and lead actor on film productions like “Instructions Not Included,” Eugenio Derbez has rocketed to international stardom in a very short period of time. Variety magazine named him the most influential Hispanic man in entertainment, and he has been considered the #1 Influencer on Mexican social networks during the last two years.

But without a doubt, the film “Instructions Not Included,” which he not only directed but also co-wrote, became the most successful Spanish-language movie in U.S. history. Derbez can now be seen on Paramount’s “Dora and the Lost City of Gold” starring Eva Longoria, Michael Peña, and Isabela Moner and directed by James Bobin; as well as on Sony’s “The Angry Birds Movie” 2, alongside Jason Sudeikis, Bill Hader and Peter Dinklage.
