The Latin Recording Academy® Honors Antonio Banderas with the 2023 President's Award.

Esteemed actor, director, and entrepreneur Antonio Banderas has been announced as the recipient of the coveted 2023 President’s Award by The Latin Recording Academy®. Banderas, whose illustrious career has left an indelible mark on the global arts scene, will be recognized for his contributions that extend beyond the silver screen, into the heart of cultural and artistic promotion.

The President’s Award is a rare honor, reserved for individuals who have played a pivotal role in enriching Latin arts and culture globally. This esteemed recognition has been bestowed in only a handful of instances, with the multi-talented Lin-Manuel Miranda being the most recent awardee in 2017.

Beyond his international stardom, Banderas has been instrumental in elevating musical theater within the Spanish-speaking world. His vision led to the establishment of the Teatro del Soho in Málaga, which has become a cultural beacon in his hometown. Through the theater, he has introduced acclaimed Spanish-language versions of legendary musicals such as "Company" and "A Chorus Line," reenergizing the local theater landscape and broadening its reach to a diverse array of audiences.

The presentation of the President’s Award to Banderas will be a highlight of the 24th Annual Latin GRAMMY Awards®, which, for the first time, will celebrate the event internationally in the vibrant city of Sevilla, Andalucía, on November 16. Manuel Abud, CEO of The Latin Recording Academy, expressed his joy in honoring Banderas, noting his exceptional achievements and role as a global ambassador for the community's cultural legacy.

As anticipation builds, the gala event promises to captivate audiences from the Conference and Exhibition Centre (FIBES) in Sevilla. American viewers can tune in at 8 p.m. ET (7 p.m. CT) on networks including Univision, UniMás, and Galavisión. Spanish audiences can catch the broadcast at 10:30 p.m. CET on Radiotelevisión Española (RTVE). For a broader reach, the ceremony will also be available on the cable channel TNT at various times throughout Latin America and aired in over 80 countries worldwide.

Mark your calendars for an evening of celebration, culture, and the arts, and join us in congratulating Antonio Banderas for this well-deserved acknowledgment. Check your local listings for additional airings and get ready for an unforgettable night at the Latin GRAMMYs®!
