Music and film superstar and recent Rosebud Magazine cover celebrity Justin Timberlake was among the Hollywood players honored last Sunday with awards from the Environmental Media Association (EMA). The star-studded gala celebrated the contributions made by actors, producers, and directors to spread green ideals and environmental awareness, and recognized the efforts of Timberlake, along with massive studio Warner Brothers, and TV shows like Futurama and HBO's Real Time With Bill Maher, among others.

Warner Bros, who also hosted the event at their studios in Burbank, were honored for two of their films. One was the CGI film Yogi Bear (featuring Timberlake as a voice actor,) though light on critical acclaim, was heavy on environmentalist overtones. Their documentary feature, The Revenge of the Electric Car, (sequel to 2006's Who Killed The Electric Car?) will be released nationwide on Friday, and was recognized for its coverage of the resurgence of the electric vehicle and the companies, like GM, Nissan, and American upstart Tesla, who are facilitating a new, greener form of transportation.

Five television shows were also given awards -- Matt Groening's cult-favorite cartoon show Futurama, HBO's liberal soundboard Real Time With Bill Maher, massive-hit CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, HGTV's Green Home 2011, and children's show Bubble Guppies -- all for featuring programming that promotes a green agenda.

Justin Timberlake was honored with the Futures Award, which is given to the celebrity that year who is "just hitting his or her stride in terms of environmental commitment or activism."

Justin Timberlake was honored with the Futures Award, which is given to the celebrity that year who is "just hitting his or her stride in terms of environmental commitment or activism." Timberlake has recently gained notoriety within the environmental community for the changes he has instituted to make his concert tours greener, as well the eco-friendly golf course that he opened near his hometown of Memphis, Tennessee.

He accepted his award with the humor for which he has become known.

"I like a lot of green things; like nature, and money, and things like Kermit the Frog, and golf greens, Al Green, hell - I even love Seth Green," said Timberlake, who also famously admitted recently in a Playboy Magazine interview to having an affinity for a certain other green item. He continued, "I like all sorts of green herbs, some of which I take with a medical prescription: it's legal!" Then added, "Uh, green tea, that's what I was referring to - green tea."

Whatever his green affinities, Justin Timberlake is proving that you can be an environmentally thoughtful person and responsible human even while being a successful entrepreneur and international superstar. So, what have you done today?
