The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences served an entirely plant-based menu for its Oscar Nominees Luncheon on Monday, noting, “we owe our global membership a commitment to supporting the planet.”
The Oscar Nominees Luncheon’s plant-based food menu was about the organization stressing the importance of committing to “supporting the planet,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.
“The Academy is an organization of storytellers from around the world, and we owe our global membership a commitment to supporting the planet,” said the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) in a statement, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
“For the past decade, the Academy has been committed to reducing its carbon footprint,” added the AMPAS.
The report noted that the Governors Ball is still serving meat this year, adding that the AMPAS said the menu will be 70 percent plant-based.
