Davis received the Wyler Award " in recognition of the media attention she has brought to the plight of orphaned African elephants" at the ceremony hosted by the Humane Society of the United States in Century City, California.
Animated movie "How to Train Your Dragon" was praised for highlighting animal rights issues and giving an "inspiring message about tolerance and respect for all living creatures", while vampire TV drama "True Blood" won a prize for a plot about dog fighting.
