Leo wins - but not in a good way

Leonardo Dicaprio has been awarded the Black Lung Award by a group of Canadian high school students for the prevalence of cigarette smoking in the movie Blood Diamond. The purpose of the Black Lung Awards is to target actors and movies that attempt to glamorize smoking by featuring tobacco use. Blood Diamond was picked as the most smoke-filled movie of the year while its lead actor managed to earn himself "male chimney" honors. Night at the Museum was awarded the Pink Lung Award as a film without a single smoking character. "We want people to realize how much smoking there actually is in movies and how much they glamorize it," said a student at the school. "They never show the bad things that happen to people because of smoking."
