After the stars like Joaquin Phoenix and Leonardo di Caprio praised the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for the serving up a first plant-based meal in the history of the awards ceremony offering vegan meals at Hollywood's biggest events has become the new normal.
After the Golden Globes, another Hollywood awards event is doing the same. The Critics Choice Association on Thursday announced it will serve only plant-based food during the 25th Annual Critics' Choice Awards ceremony this Sunday.
According to the announcement, the organisation wants to "shine a light on sustainability and the ever-growing climate crisis our world is facing".
The event will take place in Santa Monica and will host over 1 000 prominent guests from the cinema industry, including movie stars and celebrities.
The film critics organisation has recruited restaurants Baja Fresh and The Counter to provide guests with a selection of vegan tacos and burritos and plant-based burgers. And the famous Pinkberry and Cold Stone Creamery will create vegan desserts for the guests.
"When planning this year’s awards show, we wanted to be mindful of the impact that our event has on the environment," said Joey Berlin, CEO of the CCA.
"Baja Fresh and The Counter were able to step up in a big way to support our decision thanks to their diverse menus of tasty food options. Together we are looking forward to providing our incredible honorees, nominees and guests with delicious, and thoughtful, food during our show."
