“This is a special year for the 2021 Environmental Media Association’s Awards & Honors Gala,” said Goldblum. “I’m thrilled to be able to host as well as to present the EMA Lifetime Achievement Award to my dear friend of over 45 years, Ed Begley Jr. There is no one in the environmental community that has made a greater impact than Ed. He has consistently used his platforms to spotlight and role model environmental issues impacting our global community. No one is more deserving of this honor.”
