PETA is honoring the Smash actress as their Person of the Year for 2012, thanks to her hard hitting exposé on chimps in the entertainment industry.
Along with her expose (which started in 2008), Anjelica has tackled the fur industry as well as New York's horse drawn carriages.
Now the actress joins the likes of Bill Clinton, Ellen DeGeneres, and Russell Simmons as previous winners.
Congrats Anjelica! Way to SMASH down barriers for animal rights!
