The Oscars are going Vegan, sort of!

The Oscars are going Vegan, sort of!

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced on Monday that it will be offering entirely plant-based menus at today’s Oscar Nominees Luncheon and then in the Dolby Theatre lobbies prior to the 92nd Academy Awards on Feb. 9.
The post-ceremony Governors Ball will be 70% plant-based, and 30% vegetarian, fish, and meat. All food will be responsibly sourced and sustainably farmed.

“The Academy is an organization of storytellers from around the world, and we owe our global membership a commitment to supporting the planet,” the org said in a statement. “For the past decade, the Academy has been committed to reducing its carbon footprint. For the past seven years, the Oscars show has had a zero-carbon imprint. We continue to expand our sustainability plan with the ultimate goal of becoming carbon neutral.”

The Academy’s menu originally featured a Chilean sea bass dish but was changed to king oyster mushroom “scallops” with wild mushroom risotto and vegetables.
