Hayden Panettiere @ Genesis Awards 2008

After making a quick appearance at the Kids’ Choice Awards, Hayden Panettiere was honored at the 2008 Genesis Awards on Saturday night in Beverly Hills. (The event was produced by The Hollywood Office of the Humane Society of the United States.)

The Genesis Awards honors the news and entertainment media for showcasing animal protection issues. Hayden was honored with The Wyler Award for drawing worldwide attention to the cruelty of Japan’s whale and dolphin slaughter. The award, given to a celebrity who has made news on behalf of animals, is named after Genesis Awards founder Gretchen Wyler, the former Broadway headliner and animal activist, who died last year.

Said Beverly Kaskey, Senior Director of The Hollywood Office of The Humane Society of the United States: “We feel Hayden is a very worthy successor to Sir Paul McCartney, last year’s Wyler Award recipient. She’s an inspiring example to her generation, using her compassion, courage and celebrity to help animals in a very effective way.”

  • eddie jones

    Let me be known that the humane society of the united states does absolutely nothing to help animals. They are a political organization designed to attack people. They are not involved with protecting animals what so ever.

  • zzarazza

    those shoes are seriously HOT

  • _nika

    for real eddie jones?

  • rolling eyes

    hey eddie

    that aint news… most organizatoins like them are just made up to look like they have a cause, but their real underlying intentions are just political

    What’s that word used to describe them…

  • missheloise

    Hayden is pretty ;) can’t wait for new eps of Heroes…!
    Check out my blog:

  • ken

    This sounds mean too. I don’t like girls to starve and be skeletors either. But this girl, at 19 or something, is really stubby and chubby. All limbs are short. Face is just too big for her age. I don’t see anything pretty about her other than the age related glow.

  • booyay

    not particularly beautiful, shes way overrated. jutting jaw and pointy chin. plus heroes is crap

  • joey


  • joey


  • joey

    HA !

  • x-becky-may-x

  • Ele

  • 007

    Wow 2 events in 24 hrs.

  • Diama

    love her outfit

  • summer

    love her outfit(:

  • Kristin

    well deserved Hayden is awesome for taking her time to support this cause she is really an inspiration and she looks really pretty and normal ;)

  • unbelievable.

    Why is she recieving an award? Because she cried over those poor dolphins? Because she’s pretty and looks like jailbait? There are thousands of people in the world who have dedicated their lives to enviromental causes but, yeah, give it to the pretty tv bimbo and stroke her giant ego even more.

  • k

    ^#33 You obviously didn’t read the article because that award is for people in entertainment. There are many stars that just show up to charity events but Hayden has been with the save the whales foundation for some time and has put her words into action. She went to Japan to support the foundation, has made rallies and taken her cause to Washington D.C. Many people didn’t even know about commercial whaling a couple a months ago and that’s why I think her getting an award is great for helping spread the word.

  • Sally


    This girl needs to start dressing her age! I know she’s dating a much older man and all but that does NOT mean she has to sacrifice her youth for it! She’s ALWAYS seen in dresses, dresseS, DRESSES! How abt a pair of jeans once in a while eh Hayden?

    U’re 18! NOT 40!

  • julie

    i love her on heroes. shes so hott. did you guys see her on keeping up witht he kardashians? hilarious. tell me what u think

  • a

    There are plenty of paparazzi pictures of her with jeans or sweats. This is her receiving an award what is she supposed to wear? She has always had the same style for events no matter who she was dating; that’s how she likes to dress so she’s not sacrificing anything. She doesn’t even dress bad but people just want to find anything to criticize.

  • geniass

    I love love her dress. Who’s the designer??

  • Nando

    Hayden is a stupend girl, she is fabulous, and she is the best girl in the world.
    I love Hayden.
