Hayden Panettiere, Matt Damon among Environmental Media Awards winners

Hollywood's greenest gathered at the star-studded Environmental Media Awards on Saturday to recognize stars who are going above and beyond in their efforts to raise eco-friendly awareness. 

Matt Damon accepted the Ongoing Commitment award and was accompanied by his beautiful wife Luciana Barroso, who wore a gorgeous, off-the-shoulder black gown.


Hayden Panettiere was also a winner, receiving the Futures award for her work for protecting ocean animals. Donning a sexy lace top paired with a snug, orange skirt, the newly-engaged actress encouraged her fans to focus on important issues and avoid certain Twitter-trending distractions. 

"Twerking is not going to solve global warming," the Nashville star quipped as she accepted her award. "In fact I think it speeds it up."

Also in attendance was Canadian actress Emmanuelle Chriqui, a proponent of all-natural and environmentally-friendly products, who wore a sleek, all-black ensemble on the green carpet. 

She was joined by fellow green-thumb celebrities like Lance Bass, Wilmer Valderrama, Daryl Hannah and Malin Akerman.
