CNN Heroes: Anderson Cooper, Viola Davis, Jane Lynch, and more + full list of honorees

CNN Heroes is not your typical Los Angeles awards show. Sure, there was a glamorous red carpet with photographers shouting and snapping away, an elaborate stage design, and a highly choreographed show, but on Sunday night at the Shrine Auditorium, the celebrities weren’t the ones being honored. They were there to pay tribute to 10 incredible individuals who are making a difference in the world.

The celebrity with a cause is not a new phenomena, but from Susan Sarandon to 50 Cent to Rico Rodriguez, all who attended were keenly aware of their platform and unique ability to elevate the names and causes of those who, otherwise, would not receive such high profile recognition.

Pushpa Basnet, creator of the Butterfly Home that supports children in Nepal who are forced to live with their parents in prison, was voted the CNN Hero of the Year and awarded a $250,000 grant to continue her work.
