The 92nd Academy Awards that will happen on the 9th of February will provide a vegan menu at their Oscars lunch and a 70 percent plant-based menu during the Governor’s Ball.
Even though the Academy of Motion Pictures and Arts and Sciences don’t serve dinner during the ceremony, they decided to make the pre- and after-celebration menus plant-based.
According to a statement by the organization, the Academy is an organization of storytellers from the whole world and they owe their global membership a commitment to support our planet.
In the last 10 years, the Academy worked on lowering their carbon footprint and succeeded in having zero-carbon emissions for the last seven years.
They want to spread their sustainability further and their ultimate goal is to go carbon neutral.
Popular Ceremonies Are Going Vegan
The academy is consisted of 8000 members who decide on the Oscar winners.
This decision for a plant-based menu comes after the Golden Globes, the SAG Awards, and the Critics Choice Awards all offered a plant-based menu.
The Governor’s Ball that will happen right after the Oscars ceremony will provide a vegan menu, at least a 70 percent vegan one.
This plan follows the decision of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association to have a vegan menu at the Golden Globes.
Originally, the menu had a Chilean sea bass dish; however, it was replaced in the last minute with king oyster mushroom scallops with wild mushroom risotto and veggies.
The menu also had a chilled golden beet soup as an appetizer. The dessert was made by pastry chef Thomas Henzi and it was called the vegan opera dome.
The plant-based menu at the pre-Oscar’s party will be vegan in honor of their client- Joaquin Phoenix, said the WME. The Joker start suggested that the Globes go vegan.
