Ellen DeGeneres & Portia de Rossi accept The Wyler Award.

Roll over Oscar and Emmy, because the 23rd annual Genesis Awards are here—or close enough, considering they just happened last Saturday. Presented by the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), the awards recognizing animal awareness in news and entertainment media were presented Mar. 28 in Beverly Hills. Among those taking top honors were Disney’s Bolt, the Simpsons, Grey’s Anatomy, and the Oprah Winfrey Show.

Tails cover girl Ellen DeGeneres and partner Portia de Rossi received the prestigious Gretchen Wyler Award, named for the Genesis Awards’ founder and given to a public figure making news in the name of animal welfare.
