Crowe is currently in Australia protecting his home and family from the bushfires. “Make no mistake, the tragedy unfolding in Australia is climate change based,” his message, which was read by Aniston, started. “We need to act based on science, move our global workforce to renewable energy and respect our planet for the unique and amazing place that it is. That way, we all have a future.”
Pierce Brosnan delivered another message directly to Australia: “All of us at the Golden Globes and the HFPA send our hearts to all of the people affected by the bushfires in Australia. Stay strong, God bless.”
Ellen DeGeneres used her acceptance speech for her Carol Burnett Award to express her condolences to the many animals who have lost their lives. “My heart goes out to everyone in Australia, for all the animals you’ve lost,” she told the crowd.
