BEVERLY HILLS (CNS) - The menu at tonight's Golden Globe Awards ceremony will be lacking a key ingredient -- meat.
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has opted to serve a 100% plant-based meal during the Beverly Hilton event.
“Over the holidays, we took time to reflect on the last year and began thinking about the new year and the decade ahead,” HFPA president Lorenzo Soria said. “The climate crisis is impossible to ignore and after speaking with our peers and friends in the community, we felt challenged to do better.”
As a result, the menu during the 77th Golden Globes will feature items such as chilled golden beet soup and king oyster mushrooms with risotto.
“The decision to serve an entirely plant-based meal was embraced by our partners at the Beverly Hilton, and represents a small step in response to a big problem,” Soria said. “By partnering with Icelandic Glacial to hydrate guests via glass bottles, eliminating single-use plastic, and serving a 100% plant-based meal, we're hoping to raise awareness around small changes that can have a greater impact.
“We know awards shows have a long way to go, and we all can do better,” he said.
