…… And so the Uggie bandwagon rolls on, this time courtesy of the newly-created Golden Collar Awards, given for the outstanding performance by a dog in a movie. Yep, only in America ……
With the Palme Dog already round his neck, the scene-stealing Jack Russell is a surefire bet to win, with no less than two nominations – for both The Artist and Water For Elephants. Up against him are Cosmo from Beginners, Denver in 50/50 and Hummer in Young Adult.
But check out the film of the nominations announcement on the BBC website http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-16626223 and you’ll see that Uggie was the only dog on stage. All of which makes it look like a done deal.
Which is a bit ruff on the other dogs!
