Celebrities Will Have to Go Vegan at the 2020 Golden Globes
Those late night runs to In-N-Out might start a little earlier this year.
When you think of the annual Golden Globes Awards, the first thing that comes to mind probably isn't what the attendees will be eating during the commercial breaks. This year, however, the plant-based meal choice is stealing the spotlight. (BTW, here's the difference between a plant-based diet and a vegan diet.)
That's right: For one night only, celebrities are being forced to go vegan (except for whatever snacks they sneak in their bags, of course), according to the Los Angeles Times.
In a statement to The Times, Hollywood Foreign Press Association president Lorenzo Soria explained the decision, saying, "Over the holidays, we took time to reflect on the last year and began thinking about the new year and the decade ahead. The climate crisis is impossible to ignore and after speaking with our peers, and friends in the community, we felt challenged to do better." (Interested in reducing your own carbon footprint?

He continued, "The decision to serve an entirely plant-based meal was embraced by our partners at the Beverly Hilton, and represents a small step in response to a big problem."
So, what's on the menu? This year, they will be serving up a golden beet soup appetizer, king oyster mushrooms scallops (no actual scallops will be in the meal), cheese-less wild mushroom risotto, and roasted vegetables. They will also be serving a cocktail created by designer Laquan Smith called the Moët Golden Hour, which consists of champagne, pineapple, grapefruit vodka, and simple syrup.

While the meal does sound pretty great, it's not uncommon for stars to post photos of themselves getting down on some fast food after the awards shows. After all, there is usually a lot of socializing and, um, partying involved. This year, it seems likely that—delicious food or not—the local In-N-Out will be pretty busy come late Sunday night.
