25th Annual Genesis Awards - winners<br><br>
The 25th Anniversary Genesis Awards took place on Saturday night at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza in Los Angeles. The awards are given annually by the Humane Society of the United States in recognition of work that raises public awareness of animal issues.<br><br>
How to Train Your Dragon won the award for Outstanding Feature Film. The Feature Documentary winner was The Elephant in the Living Room.<br><br>
In television, winners included The Colbert Report, True Blood, Nightline, and The Oprah Winfrey Show. Stephen Colbert defeated his colleague Jon Stewart with a segment about bullfighting and joked in character that he "won't rest until animals can carry guns, just like us."<br><br>
Sex and the City actress Kristin Davis was honoured with the Wyler Award, named after the late Genesis Award founder Gretchen Wyler. Davis was awarded "in recognition of the media attention she has brought to the plight of orphaned African elephants impacted by the increase in elephant poaching for their ivory tusks." It seems that elephants were a big issue for many of the night's winners.<br><br>
