Genesis Awards

From Karen Dawn - [email protected] 

People new to this list may not be familiar with the Genesis Awards - I like to think of them as our Oscars. Oscars with heart. The night is a celebrity studded, glamorous, but deeply moving ceremony in which awards are given to members of the major media who have helped shine the spotlight on animal cruelty. Movie stars, television stars and pop stars present the awards. Their function is to reward the media for animal friendly presentations and thus encourage more.

This year the Sixteenth annual Genesis Awards were held at the Beverly Hilton hotel on March 16. They will air on Animal Planet on:

Sunday, May 19 - Two-Hour Special
2:00pm - West Coast
(5:00pm - East Coast)

with an encore presentation of the two hour special on:

Saturday, May 25
9:00am - West Coast
(12:00 noon - East Coast)

One hour highlights will air on:

Saturday, May 18
7:00pm and 10pm - West Coast
(10:00pm and 1am - East Coast)

If you are not on the west or east coasts, please check your local listings.

I strongly recommend watching or taping the two hour special. I know that any compassionate person will be moved by the show. Please don't forget to thank Animal Planet for putting it on the air. Animal Planet takes comments at:
