The animal rights group said in a release Wednesday that DeGeneres earned her award for promoting awareness of animal issues on her TV talk show and Web site.

Gunn, a mentor on the TV series "Project Runway," was honored for narrating a PETA video on animal rights violations and for his outspoken opposition to the use of fur.

"Wearing fur is like wearing a big sign reading, 'I'm in favor of inflicting cruelty and pain on animals as a fashion statement.' Unspeakable torture is inflicted on dogs, cats, bunnies, raccoons, foxes, minks, and myriad trapped, helpless creatures in the name of fashion--yes, dogs and cats," Gunn said recently.
