The Environmental Media Awards, the eco-Oscars of the entertainment world, took place Saturday night in Los Angeles and featured some big names in attendance.

Natalie Portman, James Cameron and his wife Suzy Amis, Amy Poehler, Ted Turner, Rosario Dawson, Eva Mendes, Daryl Hannah, Olivia Munn, and of course Ed Belgey Jr., joined many others in honoring “individuals, organizations and productions that help increase public awareness of environmental issues.”

No surprise, Avatar took home the top prize for Feature Film, while 30 Rock’s “Sun Tea” episode won for TV Comedy. Animal-friendly favorite Bones also scored for their “Tough Man in the Tender Chicken” episode, which featured some gruesome factory farm footage (courtesy of Farm Sanctuary). From AP:

Entrepreneurs Ted Turner and Jeff Skoll received honorary awards for their environmental contributions. Natalie Portman presented Skoll with his award. His namesake foundation has funded organizations such as The Amazon Conservation Team, the American Council on Renewable Energy and Global Footprint Network.

Ecorazzi was on the scene with LivingEco interviewing celebrities about how they’re making their own lives more sustainable. We’ll bring you those videos throughout the day as they become available!

Prisons profit from exploiting life and labour

Most young workers don’t want anything to do with manual labour jobs in meat and dairy, and as a result, a large majority of agricultural workers are marginalized people

If you’re mourning Sudan the rhino, go vegan

The world needs more vegans because more than dollars or pledges or sad-emoji riddled posts, our individual efforts can stop the demand for horns, for zoos, for animal flesh, and for the exploitation of any living being.

Criticize veganism, but don’t discredit it

Oppressive and harmful behaviour has no place in a movement rooted in anti-oppression.
