CG Animated Happy Feet Deemed the 2007 EMA Awards' Best Flick


The tap-dancing penguin toon got honored for its uplifting and informative message about world environment.

Kudos and recognition still get directed to "Happy Feet" as the prancing penguin toon was named best feature film at this year's Environmental Media Association Awards, which celebrated its seventeenth anniversary yesterday, October 24, 2007.

The Warner Bros. Pictures release was recognized for its ecologically uplifting and informative message, particularly the campaign to stop commercial overfishing of the Antarctic. Pic beat out its three competitors of "Evan Almighty," "Fast Food Nation", and "Miss Potter."

Other notable honorees included British actress Sienna Miller, former U.S. vice president Al Gore, and rock band Incubus, to name few. Miller was granted the Futures Award for her efforts in raising awareness of the harmful effects of global warming while Gore and Incubus receiving the Outstanding Achievement Award and the Pepsi Mission in Music Award, respectively.

Held annually, the awards show honors creative teams behind TV and film productions as well as musicians who raise public awareness of environmental issues. The seventeenth edition, hosted by Joel McHale of E! Entertainment's "The Soup", will be aired on November 7, 2007 on both E! and BBC International.
