Last night at the Oscars there may have been no country for old men, a good amount of sacramental blood for Daniel Day Lewis, a special light where Juno was aglow and a bit of Ratatouille to be tasted in the after parties. But, there was another subplot offered at the Academy Awards that went underreported by the entertainment media.
Celebrated celebrity, film star and all around good girl, Cameron Diaz made a pro-environmental statement last night by showing up to Hollywood’s red carpet in a BMW Hydrogen 7 luxury automobile. There’s something about Cameron driving up in a zero emissions hydrogen car that helped reinforce the notion among the Hollywood elite that green is the way to go.
Woe are last year’s B-List celebs in their passé Priuses or old school bicycles ala Ed Begley, Jr. Rather Ed Norton, Cameron Diaz, Jay Leno, Will Ferrell, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are the hipster A-List celebs who dare to make a statement that hydrogen is the future of environmental wholeness and responsibility.
So, for Cameron Diaz showing at the 80th annual Academy Awards in a BMW Hydrogen 7, I have to give her “Best Supporting Actress in an Environmental Role”. I just have to figure out how to get her that trophy without any kind of ugly stalking charges thrown my way.
