The green carpet rolled out for The Environmental Media Association’s EMA Awards this Saturday at the Warner Bros. movie lot, which was hosted by Olivia Munn and Jason Ritter. The event, which was completely plastic water bottle free, honored environmental films and television series, tackled topics such as alternative fuel sources and even featured a live Native American Dance troupe.

Celebrity guests included the brilliant James Cameron and his beautiful and green conscious wife, Suzy Amis Cameron (famous for her own green fashion choices). They were both on hand when Avatar snagged the night’s award for Feature Film. On the green carpet, Cameron explained the significance of how his film was shot and its overall environmental impact.

“Let’s look at the big picture,” he said. “Avatar was a film that took place in an enormous rain forest. Can’t shoot big battle scenes in a rain forest. It was 100 percent CGI. There were a few people playing multiple roles so the footprint compared to the visual impact was very tiny. But ultimately it’s a multi-hundred million dollar movie, there are a lot of people working on computers, and those computers are absorbing energy. There’s no way you can say this movie was made with one watt of power. But you have to weigh the value of the film with the environmental impact in the public consciousness.” – James Cameron,  on making Avatar
