Betty White, Jamie Oliver Win Early Emmy Awards
Gearing up for the 62nd Emmy Awards ceremony this Sunday, August 29th with Jimmy Fallon as host? Ohhhh, what a shame. We already know who the winners are and it’s killing us…we’ve got to tell someone. You understand, right?
Okay, to be perfectly honest, an early ceremony was already held for the winners, so that’s how we got the scoop. In the interest of preserving whatever Sunday night festivities you may have already planned (not to mention most of the element of surprise), we’re just going to spill the beans on the few greenies who have scored the illustrious winged woman statuette clasping an atom.
See…who loves you? That’s right, no doubt about it. Without further ado, here are this year’s select Emmy winning eco-homies:
- For her May 8, 2010 hosting gig on Saturday Night Live, our gal Betty White – a consistent champion of animal rights — scored her 5th Emmy Award and went down in history as garnering as many viewers (12 million) for her solitary stint as the 2008 presidential election.
- British celebrity chef and 2010 TED Prize winner Jamie Oliver – who has also established a veritable media & product empire with countless cookbooks, television shows, organic foods and a self-titled magazine – earned an Emmy for his ABC reality series Food Revolution which focused on revamping the lunch system of America’s schools.
- Newly veganized and gluten-free Isaiah Mustafa – who made a serious splash in the Old Spice commercials – was no doubt the real reason why “The Man Your Man Could Smell Like” scored for outstanding commercial. Who could forget those muscles…er, man-nerisms?
- Academy Award nominated documentarian Ken Burns added two additional Emmys to his vast collection of gold thanks to the stunning series The National Parks: America’s Best Idea which details the history of our nation’s park system.
Let’s give it up for the greenies — even the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences recognizes how royally they rock (let’s just keep our fingers crossed that next year we can give props to twice as many). For the remaining 60+ winning categories, don’t forget to plant yourself in front of the boob tube this weekend!
