Animal Rights Movie Earns an Oscar

Post written by VegBlogger. Follow me on Twitter.

You know that animal rights issues are increasingly moving to the forefront when aThecove
movie about it wins an Oscar award. The documentary "The Cove," which I recently reviewed here, has won an Oscar for the best documentary of the year, even beating out Food, Inc. (reviewed here).

Kudos to those who put themselves out there to make "The Cove." They certainly stood up for what they believe and took a chance to expose such cruelty to animals. And their efforts to educate the public and help dolphins have certainly paid off. Not only with winning the award, but they will also have a new television series on the issue that will be on Animal Planet (read about it here).

Their show joins "Whale Wars" in bringing animal rights issues to the masses. Hopefully more will follow suit.

Check out the video here of them winning the award (an animal rights movie winning an Oscar actually brought tears to my eyes):

An amazing triumph! Can't wait to see it!


Yes, you have to see it! And it is such a victory. I had tears in my eyes when they won the award.
