The Environmental Media Association has recognised six Hollywood productions for spreading the word about going green.
Warner Bros.' animated “Yogi Bear” and the documentary “Revenge of the Electric Car” were honoured on Saturday night (October 15) at the group's 21st anniversary party and awards ceremony at Warner Bros. Studios in Burbank, Calif.
TV's “Futurama,” “CSI — Crime Scene Investigation,” “HGTV Green Home 2011,” “Real Time with Bill Maher” and the children's show “Bubble Guppies” also won awards for raising awareness about environmental issues. Actor/pop star Justin Timberlake accepted EMA's “Futures Award” for his ecological efforts, which include advocacy for environmental issues, greening his concert tours and the eco-friendly golf course he owns near Memphis. The awards are presented in the following categories: “Feature Film,” “Television Episodic Comedy,” “Television Episodic Drama,” “Reality Primetime Program,” “Children's Television Series” and “Documentary.” In addition to category-specific EMA Awards, special honours are given to people in the entertainment industry who have gone above and beyond to help the environment both professionally and personally. — AP
