On Saturday, October 19th, the Environmental Media Association announced the winners of the 23rd annual Environmental Media Association Awards at a ceremony in Burbank, California. Last Man Standing, the Twentieth Century Fox Television production starring Tim Allen, won in the Television Episodic Comedy category for its episode on fracking.
Last Man Standing beat out fellow TCFTV production Modern Family and IFC’s Portlandia for the Television Comedy Prize. Fox Searchlight’s eco-terrorism thriller The East was also nominated in the Feature Film category.
“This is quite an honor,” said Ed Yeager, who accepted the award for Last Man Standing. “We have a lot of fun on our show, and… [we’re grateful] we can get political and show both sides of an issue.”
Several Fox feature films also received the EMA’s Green Seal for environmentally sustainable productions: Animal Rescue, Baggage Claim, Black Nativity, The Book Thief, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Enough Said, The Internship, Maze Runner, and The Wolverine.
