"PETA is proud to kick off awards season by honoring his dedication to showing everyone that when it comes to feeling fear, pain, and love, a human being is no different from a hen or a hamster."

Earlier this year, Phoenix joined California lawmakers to announce legislation banning traveling wild-animal circuses, and he cradled a dead chicken as he led a memorial service at National Animal Rights Day. PETA also recognized him as the executive producer of "The Animal People," a documentary that follows animal rights activists who were suppressed by powerful industry interests and that were prosecuted for organizing the Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty (SHAC) campaign.

"I don't want to cause pain to another living, empathetic creature," Phoenix said during the press tour for "Joker." "I don't want to take [their] babies away from [them]. I don't want to force [them] to be indoors and fattened up just to be slaughtered. It is absurd and barbaric."

Phoenix also narrated "Earthlings," the animal rights documentary, in 2005, and presented the director, Shaun Monson, with the first-ever River Phoenix Humanitarian Award at PETA's 35th Anniversary Gala in 2015. He produced the pro-vegan documentary "What the Health" in 2017 and was among the narrators of the animal agriculture exposé "Dominion" in 2018. His decades-long partnership with PETA includes campaigns against the wool (2016), dog-leather (2015), exotic-skins (2013), fishing (2013), and turkey (1998) industries, among others.
