Oscar singing Kermit’s song, “Not that easy bein’ green?”
No hoopla planned for a green carpet at this Sunday’s upcoming Academy Awards. Perhaps show business folks grew wary of the flack last year for eco inconsistencies with flight patterns. Or maybe more focus was put on ending the writer’s strike.
While Vanity Fair canceled their legendary after-party bash in sympathy with the writers, Global Green plans to celebrate again with their 5th Annual Pre-Oscar Party this Wednesday night. Tix range from $250 to $5,000, with proceeds going to the non-profit’s green houses in New Orleans and more.
Stars attending the gala include Adrien Grenier (between Entourage and prepping his show for Discovery Channel’s Planet Green), Alicia Silverstone, Val Kilmer, Dana Delany, Chris Kattan, Big Love’s Ginnifer Goodwin, Brothers and Sisters’ Balthazar Getty, and Pirates of the Caribbean’s Vanessa Branch.
