HOLLYWOOD, CA - And the winner is...being veggie! The 83rd Academy Awards was a winning night for animal lovers. Vegan Natalie Portman won the Oscar for Best Actress. The evening's co-host Anne Hathaway is also a vegetarian, as is presenter Russell Brand. In fact, it seems like being a vegetarian is also good karma for winning the famous gold statue. The long list of vegan and vegetarian Oscar winners include Kate Winslet, Joaquin Phoenix, Anna Paquin, Diane Keaton, Russell Crowe, Forest Whitaker, Dustin Hoffman, and many others.

It's now 30 hours. This is a ghastly by-product of the dairy industry, the slaughter of 800,000 male calves a year in Australia alone, with millions more being killed in the United States. If we must slaughter them, we owe these innocent calves a cruelty-free life without starvation. – Global Animal
