Tony Revolori is also recognised and honoured with the Lupe Award. His roles in The Grand Budapest Hotel and Spider-Man: Homecoming changed the media landscape and expanded the types of roles offered to Latino actors.

At the event, Saldana's good friends, including Vin Diesel, gave her a birthday surprise that was captured on the actress' Instagram.

That’s not all. Just two days prior, the star revealed that she is getting honoured with a Hollywood Walk of Fame star, to come in 2018.

Congratulations, Zoe!
