Greens get goofy

Celebs honored at EMA kudos

HOLLYWOOD — Hollywood’s green-issue advocates got a little rowdy and raunchy at the Environmental Media Awards on Nov. 8, the kudo gathering that honors film, TV and music contributions to the cause.

Taped for broadcast on E! at Los Angeles’ Ebell Theater, many of the teleprompter-challenged presenters ad libbed risque asides; one even had a go at the showbiz gossip cabler. Comedian Rob Schneider noted E! is the ultimate environmental network, saying, “Talk about recycling garbage!”

Wilmer Valderrama got frisky with his co-presenter, as did Julie Bowen with hers.

One of the few podium speakers not to flub lines was a non-pro, Toyota’s senior VP and general counsel Dian Ogilvie, who joked she has a script to pitch, “The March of the Inconvenient Penguins.”

Winners included films “Ice Age: The Meltdown” and “An Inconvenient Truth”; TV series “The Simpsons” and “Law & Order: SVU”; and bands Red Hot Chili Peppers and Maroon 5.
