I wanted so badly for Legend of Korra to be good. The animated Nickelodeon series follows the adventures of Korra, a magical “Avatar” who has the power to manipulate all elements—earth, water, air, and fire—as well as connect to the spirit world.
Even before I did my stint in a graduate film program, I was a pretty big fan of the Academy Awards. Though I've gotten increasingly less glamorous in my old age, I still enjoy the consistency of the red carpet style. But in terms of the environmental effects of the Academy Awards, I can only shake my head. The crazy electrical bills? The grotesque waste? The blood diamonds paraded around on loan from celebrity jewelers? All aspects I can do without. However, there were a few bright spots in terms of eco-powered celeb moments.
