As we cover the hottest entertainment in Asia, we also want to take the time to celebrate Asian American representation in Hollywood. More and more of our favorite Asian American talents are scoring roles in leading blockbuster films, racking up subscribers on YouTube, and starring in hit television shows – a feat that should definitely be recognized.
The Unforgettable Gala is an annual event hosted by Kore Asian Media to celebrate these Asian American trailblazers and their achievements in the entertainment industry. The event was held just a few weeks ago on December 10th in Los Angeles. With presenters like Buzzfeed’s Eugene Lee Yang, Star Trek’s John Cho, YouTube sensation Anna Akana and more, the evening truly applauded all forms of entertainment and talent.
Winners of major awards from the evening included George Takei (ICON Award), Ken Jeong (Actor of the Year), Wong Fu Productions (Digital Influencer Award), and Steve Aoki (Music Vanguard Award). Notable performers and guests for the evening included B.I.G, Eric Nam, DEAN, Kina Grannis and more.
Join in the celebration by reliving the evening to catch all the epic performances and to see your favorite talents honored. Viki has the full star-studded event streaming now and you can watch it below:
