Two big winners at the Golden Globes on Monday are also longtime PETA supporters and outspoken advocates of vegetarianism. Alec Baldwin—whose harrowing narration of PETA’s Meat Your Meat video is permanently etched into the brains of countless ex-meat-eaters—took home the award for Best Actor in a TV comedy.

In the meantime, our old friend Joaquin Phoenix presented the award for Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy, which was won by Meryl Streep. And last year’s “World’s Sexiest Vegetarian,” Prince, won the award for Best Song. The whole event could almost have been a PETA Gala, except with, like, awards for people doing a good job in movies instead of PETA employees in giant rat costumes (not to say that wasn’t really fun).
