Platinos to Bestow Lifetime Achievement Award to Edward James Olmos
And rightfully so deserved....ADMIRAL ON DECK
Born of humble origin, the legendary Edward James Olmos was born in Los Angeles, California, to Eleanor (Huizar) and Pedro Olmos, who was a mail carrier and welder. His family was of Mexican descent. If he had followed the first love of his life, he would have been a professional baseball player. But by age 13, another love entered his life: rock music. By age 15, he was already an experienced rock singer, forming and reforming several "garage bands" along the way. Edward James Olmos, whose breakout role in hit TV show “Miami Vice” led to a series of prominent roles in such shows as “Hill Street Blues,” “Battlestar Galactica” and “Dexter,” will be receiving a Lifetime Achievement Award at the 4th Platino Ibero-American Film Awards. Olmos will be presented with the Platino Honor Award by Spanish comedian Carlos Latre and Uruguayan actress and singer Natalia Oreiro on July 22 at the Platino Prizes for Ibero-American Cinema gala, which will take place at Madrid's Caja Magica stadium.
