In honor of the 80th Annual Academy Awards ceremony, hosted by comedian Jon Stewart, Plenty presents the First Annual Eco Film Awards, as nominated by staffers. These films may not win a golden statue at the Oscars, but they have achieved some serious (and sometimes tongue-in-cheek) green cred. And the winners are...

Best Depiction of a Superfund Site
The Simpsons Movie
Best “Conservation” of an Actor or Actress
Eddie Murphy [Norbit]
Best Focus on Local Food
Best Use of Public Transportation
The Darjeeling Limited
Best Voice of an Animal in Peril
Jerry Seinfeld [Bee Movie]
Best Zero-emission Transportation
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Maybe This Film Could’ve Received an Eco Award, but We’ll Never Know Because We Couldn’t Convince Anyone to Go See It
