Last night, The Cove, a documentary which details the annual killing of dolphins in a National Park at Taiji, Wakayama, in Japan, took home the 2010 Best Documentary Academy Award and we couldn’t be happier!

Earlier this week, we reported that Ben Stiller was pulling for the film, saying, “If the movie wins, it will make a huge difference. I’m pulling for it for sure.” Of course, Hayden Panettiere, who appears in the film, was also crossing her fingers for The Cove and recently promoted it in SELF Magazine.

In his acceptance speech, The Cove producer Louie Psihoyos said:

“I just want to say it was an honor to work on this film and to try make an entertaining film that also tries to enlighten everybody. I have to thank Jim Clark who financed the film and who was also kind of the guiding wisdom behind the film, Paula DuPre Presman, my producing partner, and my hero, Rick O’Barry, who is not only a hero to this species but to all species.”

We agree!

Shortly after the win, a few of our favorites took to Twitter to share their excitement, including The Biggest Loser trainer Jillian Michaels, who said, “I AM SO GLAD THE COVE WON!!! Thank god. Please text Dolphin to 44144 to sign the petition to stop the slaughter of Dolphins from your phone.”

Are you excited about The Cove’s success? Chime in and share your thoughts!
