Armando del Moral, a Spanish language film journalist who helped organize the Golden Globes, died July 21 of natural causes, Variety reports. He was 93. A Spanish civil war refugee, Del Moral –who served as vice president of the Hollywood Foreign Correspondents Association– came to Mexico from Spain in 1939 before moving to the United States in 1943, where he wound up writing about Hollywood and interviewing such legendary screen stars as Elizabeth Taylor, Kirk Douglas, Marlon Brando and John Wayne. In addition to being an emcee and presenter at multiple Golden Globe Award ceremonies, Del Moral also wrote and edited the L.A-based magazine Cine-Grafica, and was a Hollywood rep for the Mexican Actor’s union.
