Up among Genesis Award nominees

MUMBAI: Disney/Pixar‘s Up is one of three features along with DreamWorks/Nickelodeon‘s Hotel for Dogs and Overture/Smokehouse‘s The Men Who Stare at Goats that have been nominated for Genesis Awards.

Presented by the Humane Society of the United States, the 24th annual awards, to be handed out on 20 March at the Beverly Hilton, recognize films, TV shows and news reports that spotlight animal-protection issues.

In the feature documentary category, Oscar nominees The Cove and Food, Inc. will compete against The End of the Line.

"This is truly a benchmark year for feature and documentary films, with animal-protection messages breaking through to mass audiences and garnering Academy Award recognition," said Beverly Kaskey, senior director of the Hollywood office of the HSUS and executive producer of the awards.
"The Cove which earned its director Louie Psihoyos a DGA award, is proof that even a tough animal issue like Japan‘s dolphin slaughter can resonate with audiences when it‘s the basis of thrilling, cinematic storytelling."

Two animated series came up in the TV comedy category: An episode of Family Guy titled Dog Gone and a South Park instalment dubbed Whale Whores. Rounding out the group is the Monk episode Mr. Monk and the Dog.

On the TV drama series side, an episode of "Bones" titled "The Tough Man in the Tender Chicken" will compete with multiple episodes of "The Closer."

Among TV talk shows, Ellen DeGeneres earned a nom for focusing on Jonathan Safran Foer‘s book "Eating Animals," and Larry King was included for a show on Alaska‘s aerial wolf hunt.
