DoSomething.org and VH1 have announced the winners for this year’s 2011 Do Something Awards.
Hosted by Glee star Jane Lynch, the ceremony honored and celebrated the nation’s best young world-changers who represent the pivotal “do-ers” in their field, cause or issue.
Celebrities such as Tyra Banks, David Beckham, Justin Bieber, Sophia Bush, Will Ferrell, Demi Lovato and Olivia Wilde were on-hand to receive awards in a variety of categories from ‘Do Something Movie Star’ to ‘Do Something Athlete’ for all they have done to inspire young people.
Stage veterans Stephen Colbert, Will Ferrell, and Olivia Wilde were among the winners of the 2011 Do Something Awards, which were announced on a VH1 telecast, hosted by Glee star Jane Lynch.
The ceremony honored and celebrated the nation's best young world-changers who represent the pivotal "do-ers" in their field, cause or issue, as well as celebrities who have inspired young people.
Sure, VH1's "Do Something Awards" are all about celebrating community involvement and giving back and all that fancy jazz. And the awards brought together all kinds of people from different walks of life in the spirit of doing good. But there were also some pretty hilarious photos from the night, and we wouldn't be doing our job if we didn't share them with you.
A month before Jane Lynch hosts the Emmys, the actress takes to the stage hosting the "2011 Do Something Awards" on VH1 for the second time.
Younger people taking the incentive impress her, Lynch tells Zap2it.
"It's a mixed blessing of being young and naive and they do and they sacrifice themselves and it's great to give the winner a spotlight," she says.
The awards honor those under 25 who achieve change for the better, and one honoree receives $100,000 for his cause.
