Stars, filmmakers, and philanthropists strolled down an appropriately green carpet and gathered in a vast hangar at Santa Monica airport for this year’s Environmental Media Association awards on Saturday night.
Among the honorees at the ceremony, which recognizes both individuals and corporations who have demonstrated a commitment to protect the environment through their work, were Natalie Portman, Russell Simmons, John Paul DeJoria and former New York mayor Michael Bloomberg. The Environmental Media Awards have been awarded by the Environmental Media Association since 1991 to the best television episode or film with an environmental message. The Environmental Media Association (EMA) is a non-profit organization created in 1989 with the belief that through television, film and music, the entertainment community has the power to influence the environmental awareness of millions of people.
