officially award season, the time of year
when our televisions are dominated by red carpets, elegant gowns, and hilarious
Ricky Gervais zingers—and oh, yeah, awards are given out too. If animals had
submitted the Golden
Globes ballots, the roster of
winners might have looked pretty similar to Sunday's lineup:
of fowl Kate Winslet grabbed a Best Actress
statue for her work in the miniseries Mildred Pierce, and vegetarian Peter Dinklage snagged a Best
Supporting Actor prize for Game of Thrones.
another television category, one of my
favorite comedies, Modern Family,
with young star and peta2 supporter Sarah Hyland, claimed top honors.
on the big screen, The Artist, which includes the beloved animal advocate James
Cromwell in its highly talented—albeit silent—cast,
cleaned up with wins for Best Actor, Best Picture, and Best Original Score.
to all the winners, and thanks for helping animals win too!
