Remembering Lupe Ontiveros 1942 - 2012
Ontiveros also appeared on Broadway in the 1979 play, Zoot Suit, and in its 1981 film adaptation. Her other movie credits include El Norte (1983), The Goonies (1985), Selena (1997), As Good as It Gets (1997), Real Women Have Curves (1992), Our Family Wedding (2010) and my personal favorite, Chuck & Buck (2000), for which she was nominated for an Independent Spirit Award as Best Supporting Female.
Below you can watch a celebration of her work in a video made to commemorate her NALIP (National Association of Latino Independent Producers) 2010 Lifetime Achievement Award as well as scenes from Desperate Housewives and Chuck & Buck.
