Hollywood should give itself an Emmy for best mystery. Those green ribbons worn by multiple stars had many watchers baffled, and even fooled media insiders.
In its awards coverage, Entertainment Weekly initially wrote that the ribbons were to promote mental health awareness, but later had to correct the record.
“The ribbons, which include the phrase ‘DemandClimateAction,’ are meant to support the EPA and President Barack Obama’s plan to take on climate change,” the publication wrote, getting it right on the second try.
Mental health was last year’s cause—this year, climate change is the new green.
Twitter users couldn’t figure it out either, but not for lack of trying.
Happy to see so many celebrities wearing their support for leprechauns. #Emmys2015

Apparently, the entire Internet was in the dark on this one.
Don’t try to google the green ribbon actors are wearing. No one knows. The entire internet. #EmmyAwards — NECS (@necs) September 21, 2015
@necs To my last tweet, two people responded with two different answers 1) mental health and 2) climate change #EmmyAwards

@necs @cmortolani I think it’s the Green ribbon they should have worn in 2009 when Iran wanted freedom, and Neda was murdered in the street — Leigh (@sybilll) September 21, 2015

So the green ribbon is for transgender equality tonight? I thought maybe it was for all the women in sexual slavery c/o #IS — Jules (@juleslalaland) September 21, 2015

Can’t wait to see what cause will captivate TV land for next year.
