This year’s Environmental Media Association’s Awards and Honors Gala will return in person on Oct. 16, with Jeff Goldblum set to host.

The awards recognize Hollywood titles that address climate change, sustainability and other environmental topics through storylines, while also recognizing studios and productions for their efforts to be sustainable in front of and behind the camera.

Also at the gala, held at Gearbox L.A., Ed Begley Jr. will be honored with the EMA Lifetime Achievement Award; stylist Karla Welch and entrepreneur Sasha Markova, who together founded The Period Company, will receive the EMA Innovator Award; nonprofit Hip Hop Caucus will get the EMA Global Justice Award and climate activist (and former presidential candidate) Tom Steyer will receive the EMA Ongoing Commitment Award.

“This is a special year for the 2021 Environmental Media Association’s Awards & Honors Gala. I’m thrilled to be able to host as well as to present the EMA Lifetime Achievement Award to my dear friend of over 45 years, Ed Begley Jr.,” Goldblum said in a statement. “There is no one in the environmental community that has made a greater impact than Ed. He has consistently used his platforms to spotlight and role model environmental issues impacting our global community. No one is more deserving of this honor.”
