"Babel" scored most nominations in film categories, collecting nods in all five categories, including that of Outstanding Motion Pictures.

Consistently promoting fair, accurate, and balanced portrayals of Latinos in the U.S. entertainment industry, the National Council of La Raza (NCLR) for the thirteenth time is going to hold its American Latino Media Arts Awards or known as ALMA Awards and has officially revealed titles and names nominated for the prizes.

The list was made public by telecast host Eva Longoria, NCLR President and CEO Janet Murguia, and Mario Lopez on April 16 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California. Winners will be named on Friday, June 1 at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium with the event being aired later by ABC Television Network on Tuesday, June 5 at 9:00-11:00 p.m. ET.

For film categories, the organization firmly picked three titles namely "Babel", "Bobby", and "Quinceanera" as contenders for Outstanding Motion Pictures category while lining up helmer of the former two, Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu and Emilio Estevez, respectively, in Outstanding Director - Motion Picture slot alongside director of "Children of Men" Alfonso Cuaron and that of "The Lost City" Andy Garcia.

Up for the title of Outstanding Actor - Motion Picture are Gael Garcia Bernal of "Babel", Jesse Garcia of "Quinceanera", and Michael Pena of "World Trade Center." Meanwhile, Bernal's co-star Adriana Barraza successfully earns a nod in the opposite category together with Cameron Diaz of "The Holiday", Eva Mendes of "Trust the Man", and Emily Rios of "Quinceanera."

Elsewhere, the NCLR also lists out several writing names to compete in the category of Outstanding Screenplay - Motion Picture, submitting "Babel" scribe Guillermo Arriaga and Estevez, once again, for "Bobby" as well as the writing team behind "Men" consisting of Cuaron, David Arata, Timothy J.
