Marc Anthony earned 3 nomination at the 2005 Latin Grammy Awards
2005 is still a good year for Marc Anthony as he managed to grab 3 nominations at the 6th Annual Latin Grammy Awards which is slated to be held on Thursday at Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. From 43 categories, he was nominated for Best Male Pop Vocal Album through "Amar Sin Mentiras", Best Salsa Album, and Best Tropical Song through "Valio La Pena." Anthony is not the only artist to do so for other artists such as Juanes, Aleks Syntek, Obie Bermudez, and JD Natasha also gained the same amount of nominations.
Meanwhile, this year Latin Grammy Awards surely has created a history as it is the first event to be broadcasted in Spanish language after previously was presented in English to obtain a broad prime-time audience. "After five years, we thought, 'Shouldn't we go the other way around and first reach out to people whose first music and language is Spanish?'" Gabriel Abaroa, the president of Latin Recording Academy, commented. "We are taking a 180 degree change of route."
