At the second annual Environmental Media Awards ceremony at Sony Studios Wednesday night, the $500-a-plate industry crowd did some serious empathizing with the wildlife they were gathered to help preserve--specifically, with the crane , as studio honchos strained their necks in pack-like unison, looking for their limos in the long post-awards valet line.

At last year's Environmental Media Awards ceremony, organizers handed out hundreds of hardback copies of then-Sen. Al Gore's hit book "Earth in the Balance." This year, they handed out Vice President Al Gore. Following Gore's sober keynote address to the star-studded crowd at Fox Studios Monday night, host Paula Poundstone playfully suggested that Gore might want to stick around and "work the crowd." But the crowd worked him.

If our polar caps weren't melting and our landfills weren't choking up, someone could get a few cheap-shot laughs out of Hollywood's most recent effort to save the planet. We're referring to Monday night's first (and possibly annual) Environmental Media Assn.'s awards program at the Sony Pictures Entertainment studio, the oft-recycled and retitled MGM lot in Culver City.
