It’s the biggest night for Latino American entertainers, and last evening (September 17)  Salma Hayek was a big winner at the 2009 ALMA Awards.

The “Desperado” babe looked amazing as she arrived at Royce Hall, sporting a flirty short grey dress with a chunky necklace and silver platform heels.

During the course of the evening, Ms. Hayek was given the Anthony Quinn award for Industry Excellence, a top honor at the ALMAs.

Eva Longoria and George Lopez hosted the night’s affairs which included performances by Nelly Furtado, Shakira, and David Archuleta.
