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:
