With just a day left until the 83rd Annual Academy Awards take place on February 27th, oscar predictions run rampant. Even a cross-eyed opossum is throwing in her two cents. We at HuffPost Green want to honor those nominees who have not only contributed positively to a film, but have also contributed positively to the environment.

From actors like Natalie Portman who embraces a vegan lifestyle while sporting an eco-friendly engagement ring, to directors like Darren Aronokfsy who banned plastic water bottles from his set, this is a tight race as well. Although in our eyes, all of these nominated environmentalists are winners.

Who do you think deserves the Green Oscar? Vote for your favorite!

Natalie Portman - Best Actress Nominee
1 of 12
She's no black swan in real life. Portman, a vegetarian since childhood, turned full-on vegan after reading Jonathan Safran Foer's book "Eating Animals" last year. She reported on The Huffington Post, "The human cost of factory farming -- both the compromised welfare of slaughterhouse workers and, even more, the environmental effects of the mass production of animals -- is staggering." She traveled to Rwanda to film a documentary about endangered gorillas, she's designed her own vegan shoes, and is now even sporting an eco-friendly engagement ring. Portman's passion for the environment began at a young age - she can even be seem dancing in a very...unique environmental video as a World Patrol Kid.
