She is known for her roles in Coco as Mama Imelda, the matriarch and female lead, in which she sings a haunting version of La Llorona, Legally Blonde as Serena McGuire, and Meet the Fockers as Isabel Villalobos.
She has provided voices for several characters in a number of animated television shows and movies, such as Liz Allan on The Spectacular Spider-Man, the title character on El Tigre: The Adventures of Manny Rivera, Lola Boa on Brandy & Mr. Whiskers, Strudel on Pound Puppies (2010), and four characters in the Oscar-winning animated film Rango.
She played the first female assistant, Josie, on Beakman's World. She also wrote and performed a one-woman show.
Ubach stars with Lisa Edelstein as a regular cast member on Bravo's first-ever scripted series, Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce. Ubach portrays Jo, who moves to Los Angeles to reinvent herself in the guest house of her just-divorced best friend from college, Abby. "Jo ditches the vegan bakery she owned in New York for a sugary one in LA, she's an outspoken New Yorker who rarely chooses her words wisely in public," explains Ubach. "Jo can be tough or tender, depending on what she has just ingested as food or drink—or if she's fueled by her inner strength, anger or grit." Ubach describes the show as "fun and stylish, it's very relatable." The role of Jo was created following the exit of Janeane Garofalo, who played Lyla, a lawyer and one of Abby’s best friends, for several of the show’s earlier episodes.
- Alanna has also voiced another Mexican protagonist on Nickelodeon before, Manny Rivera from El Tigre.
