   Productions that focused on the humane treatment of all creatures great and small were honored at this year's Humane Society's Genesis Awards. The acclaimed movie that was lauded by all the animal lovers was DreamWorks Animation's boxoffice champ How To Train Your Dragon. It received an Outstanding Feature Film award for its inspiring message about tolerance and respect for all living creatures. The Elephant in the Living Room won in the Outstanding Feature Documentary category, for its disturbing look at exotic pet ownership. Oh my, it emphasized that it is a growing trend, and just opened in theaters in Los Angeles and New York, for those who are fascinated by the issue.
   There was a surprise among the TV productions to pick up awards, with Comedy Central's The Colbert Report winning the Sid Caesar Comedy Award for satirizing bullfighters. HBO's True Blood was named the Outstanding Dramatic Series for a unique storyline about a shape-shifter abused through dogfighting. The Oprah Winfrey Show got the Outstanding Talk Show award for two animal-themed shows spotlighting Japan's dolphin slaughter, pet overpopulation, and elephant poaching.
   Kristin Davis received the prestigious Wyler Award, named about the Genesis Awards founder Gretchen Wyler. Davis was recognized for the Oprah show she did that brought media attention to the orphaned African elephants impacted by the increase in elephant poaching for their ivory tusks.
   The gala night marked The Humane Society of the United States' 25th Anniversary of the Genesis Awards, held at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza. Featuring The event was taped for an April 30 premiere broadcast on Animal Planet. I'm sure viewers will find it one of the few awards shows that's as educational as it is entertaining.
