America Ferrera, Michael Pena, Nicole Richie and Wilmer Valderrama will be among the many presenters on hand to celebrate the accomplishments of some of the most prolific Latinos in the entertainment industry, spanning music, television and film.

This year marks the third time that Longoria and Lopez will co-host the NCLR ALMA Awards(R) after sharing hosting duties in 2009 and 2011. Longoria, the Golden Globe-nominated, Screen Actors Guild Award-winning and ALMA Award-winning actress, producer, businesswoman and philanthropist, is executive producer of the upcoming NBC dating series "Ready for Love" and just finished her eighth and final season of "Desperate Housewives." The film and television star won a People's Choice Award for "Favorite Female TV Star," has been named one of People Magazine's "50 Most Beautiful People" and was selected three years in a row in the prestigious Forbes Celebrity 100, as well as being named "Philanthropist of the Year" by the Hollywood Reporter.

Lopez is a multi-talented entertainer whose careers spans film, television, stand-up comedy and late-night television. He hosted his late-night talk show "Lopez Tonight" for two seasons, after co-creating, writing, producing and starring in his ground-breaking hit sitcom "George Lopez," which ran for six seasons and remains a hit with viewers in syndication. This summer, he hosted the dating series "Take Me Out," and debuted his third solo stand-up special. Lopez has been named one of the "25 Most Influential Hispanics in America" by Time Magazine, and the Harris Poll named him one of the Top Ten Favorite Television Personalities.

One of the most accomplished performers of the last decade, Aguilera has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide and won five Grammy Awards. She has released seven albums, with pop hits that include "Beautiful," "Genie in a Bottle" and "Dirrty," and recently began her third season mentoring music talent as a coach on NBC's Emmy-nominated series "The Voice." No stranger to the ALMA Awards, Aguilera has received ten ALMA Award nominations and taken home three ALMAs. She has served as global spokesperson for Yum! Brands' World Hunger Relief effort since 2009 where her participation has helped raise over $80 million for the World Food Programme (WFP) and other hunger relief agencies. She also serves as an "Ambassador Against Hunger" for WFP and has traveled on relief trips with the organization to Haiti and Guatemala. Aguilera continues to also fight for gay and lesbian rights as well as helping victims of domestic violence, a cause close to her heart.
