Netflix and Fox Lead 2017 Environmental Media Association Award Nominees

The Environmental Media Association (EMA) has announced the nominees for its 27th annual awards. Netflix and Fox lead the pack with four nominations each.

Nat Geo, Hulu, and HBO received three nominations apiece.

Jaden Smith, a member of the EMA board, will host the awards. The show will also honor Russell Simmons with EMA’s Mission in Music Award, Natalie Portman with the EMA Ongoing Commitment Award, John Paul DeJoria with the Innovator Award, and former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg will be given the org’s Lifetime Achievement Award. The event takes place at Barker Hangar at Santa Monica Airport on Sept. 23.
