Twenty three HSUS Genesis get Awards
In true HSUS style, the stars shone brightly at the 23rd Genesis Awards last week in Beverly Hills. Dedicated to ending the Canadian Seal Hunt, the GAs also presented the Wyler Award to Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi, for their leadership in making news on behalf of animals. The award, named after Genesis Awards founder and former Broadway headliner Gretchen Wyler has previously been awarded to Hayden Panettiere and Sir Paul McCartney.
The usual suspects were out in full force and included Razz faves Constance Marie, who having recently given birth to a baby girl, couldn’t help but extol the virtues of veganism the oh-so-beautiful Emily Deschanel, James Cromwell, Wendie Malick, Jennifer Coolidge, Esai Morales, Corey Feldman, and Jillian Reynolds, who reminded us to get our dogs from shelters and not pet stores. Other celebs lending their support included Gabrielle Anwar, Matt Grant, Joe Mantegna, and Victoria Stilwell.
