Congratulations to Emmy Nominees

Written by PETA | July 9, 2010

One could be forgiven for mistaking this year’s list of Emmy nominees for the guest list for PETA’s 30th Anniversary Gala. Just look at all these talented PETA supporters:

  • Alec Baldwin, Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series
    It would take less time to list what he hasn’t done for animals, but my personal favorite is his powerful narration of PETA’s “Meet Your Meat” video. Alec, if you do decide to retire from acting, the door is always open in the PETA Foundation’s A-V department.
  • Lea Michele, Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series
    We can’t stop singing the praises of this break-out star whose voice is almost as big as her heart.
  • Edie Falco, Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series
    The Sopranos veteran knows that crime doesn’t pay—especially crimes against animals.
  • Kyra Sedgwick, Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series
    If elephants could vote, they’d certainly choose the kind Closer star.
  • Jane Lynch, Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series
    Personally, I think her adorable PETA spay/neuter ad should have been nominated too.
  • Martin Short, Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series
    Ditto for Martin Short’s inspired interview with a demented Ronald McDonald.
  • Ricky Gervais, Outstanding Animated Program
    His animated PETA ad is pretty outstanding too.
  • Bill Maher, Outstanding Variety, Music, or Comedy Series and Outstanding Variety, Music, or Comedy Special
    He can find humor in just about anything—except the Canadian seal slaughter (actually, his digs at seal hunters are pretty funny).

Best of luck to you, animal-rights thespians—although I have to admit that I’ll also be rooting for fellow William & Mary alum Jon Stewart. Go, Tribe—er—Griffin(s)!

How about you? Feel free to post a comment below letting us know who you think (or hope) will be walking home carrying a little gold-winged woman holding up a medicine ball.
