1994 Genesis Awards
The highlight of the Eighth Annual Genesis Awards came when one legend acknowledged another: Jack Lemmon presented the Lifetime Achievement Award to world-renowned chimpanzee expert, Dr. Jane Goodall, who received a thunderous standing ovation from the nearly 1,000 people in the Los Angeles Ballroom of the Century Plaza Hotel.

Sponsored for the second consecutive year by John Paul Mitchell Systems, Inc. and co-hosted by Brooke Shields and Scott Hamilton, the Genesis Awards honored 24 different winners, including Hard Copy, I Witness Video, The Simpsons, Time magazine, and the hit feature film, Free Willy. The Doris Day Music Award was presented to Paul McCartney for his antivivisection anthem, "Looking for Changes," from his album, Off the Ground.

Celebrity presenters included Shari Lewis and Charlie Horse, Jane Leeves and four-legged co-star Eddie, Candace Cameron, Jason James Richter, and Stephanie Zimbalist. For the fourth consecutive year, the show was taped for broadcast on the Discovery Channel.

Most Memorable Moments:

The Jane Goodall presentation, of course. It was only the second Lifetime Achievement Award presented in Genesis's history; the first went to Jacques Cousteau. But the audience also rose to its feet when Sidney Poitier presented the Film Classic Award to Stanley Kramer, who produced and directed the poignant 1971 film, Bless the Beasts and Children.
