Cocaine Bear: Elizabeth Banks, Director of Cocaine Bear, receives the PETA Award for outstanding bear performance


Banks receives the Beary Best Award because she used a CGI bear in her film instead of an actual bear.

People are buzzing about Cocaine Bear for the right reasons. Audiences have not heard a title since Snakes On a Plane10. The marketing was appropriately tongue-in cheek. Early word is that it’s an easy, fun, and breezy adventure into the many examples of real life being stranger than fiction. The film’s director is Elizabeth Banks, a comedic film actress. Banks will direct this film, her third feature-length effort. PETA recently presented Banks the “Beary Best Award.” This award is given to Banks because she chose to use a human bear as a stand-in for filming the movie and CGI in an animal realistic bear, rather than using an actual bear for the performance. Lisa Lange, PETA Senior Vice President has made the following statement,

Cocaine Bear’s hyper-realistic star proves that the future of film lies in technology, not dragging abused animals onto movie sets. PETA is proud to recognize Elizabeth Banks for recognising that forcing a bear to perform in her dark comedy would not have been funny.” Lisa Lange, PETA Senior Vice President, stated that Jon Favreau’s live-action adaptation to Disney’s The Jungle Book

featured an all-animal cast and made the PETA Award For Innovation in Film in 2016. Although the animals in that story are geared toward a more fantasy element, Favreau sought to use advanced computer techniques, “It’s amazing what they can do with fur and live-flesh animals, and so every day I go into work, it’s astounding what these visual effects artists accomplish.”According to the organization,

“PETA’s undercover investigations and law-enforcement probes into animal suppliers for the film and TV industries have documented that animals are often whipped and kept in deplorable conditions. Bears are separated from their mothers prematurely, causing a lifetime of psychological distress, and handlers typically use cruel techniques such as food deprivation, beatings, electric shocks, and chaining to break their spirits, make them compliant, and force them to perform on cue.”
