PETA Honors Stars With Oscat Awards

PETA's Animals in Film and Television Division is getting into the awards season spirit with its third annual Oscats, which honor the movies and stars who promoted kindness to animals through positive actions, story lines, and the use of computer-generated imagery (CGI) during the previous year.

Two outspoken vegans, Joker star and PETA’s 2019 Person of the Year Joaquin Phoenix and Harriet star Cynthia Erivo, won Best Actor, while Best Picture went to The Lion King for using breathtaking CGI to portray its cast of wild-animal characters instead of exploiting a single real one. Dumbo netted two awards: Best Screenplay, for changing the original film’s ending so that Dumbo and his mother escape from a life of abuse and exploitation, and Best “Bad Guy” for star Michael Keaton, who continued spreading the film’s anti-captivity message in a PETA campaign.
