The Associated Press' report on the ALMA Awards bestowed last night in Los Angeles was spotty, having such phrases in it as "'The West Wing' and series star Jimmy Smits also won awards." What awards, eh?

I think I've been able to sort out some results, but not all. The ALMA Awards website is shoddy. For example, it doesn't bother to list nominees for best supporting film actor. Nor does it list categories for best film or TV show, but I came across a list of TV show nominees someplace else, but, frankly, I can't recall where. If my list is right and the AP report is put through a decoding device, it looks like "West Wing" won that category.

To sort through other award mysteries, check out the website of the ALMA Awards, which salute achievement by Latino artists in film, TV and music: click here.

Meantime, here are partial results of the ALMA Awards, which will be bestowed on a program to air ABC taped last night, but will air on June 5.
