At the 25th annual Imagen Awards, which celebrate the achievements of Latinos in television, America Ferrara picked up her third award for her work on “Ugly Betty” as reported by the LA Times. Of course, it was a bittersweet moment, since Ferrara’s Betty made her final appearance last April.
“I’m going to try and not cry right now,” Ferrara said through her tears as she accepted the award. When someone shouted that he was sad from the audience, Ferrara agreed. “Me too. I just love her. I love the show. It was a period of my life that was just magical.”
Not that she’s concerned. “I’m not afraid I’m not going to work again. That’s not why I’m crying,” she clarified.
