The first ever Golden Collar Awards took place Monday honoring dogs on tv and in the movies. The awards show was only broadcast online, but the creators at dognewsdaily.com hope to have it televised next year. The show drew dog and human stars alike. Six dogs received various awards.
Uggi, the small terrier from the movie The Artist took home the top prize this year for Best Dog in a Theatrical Film.
Here is B-Dawg from the Disney’s Buddies franchise:
Here is the prize, a golden collar covered in Swarovski crystals:
The dog from the movie “The Artist” was a hit on the red carpet and on stage at this years Golden Globes. I saw him perform onstage when the actors came up to accept their Golden Globe for “best motion picture comedy or musical.” He walked on his hind legs and played dead on stage.
I do not know anything about the movie , or how prominently featured this dog actually is. The movie is rated pg 13 and IMDB explains “Hollywood, 1927: As silent movie star George Valentin wonders if the arrival of talking pictures will cause him to fade into oblivion, he sparks with Peppy Miller, a young dancer set for a big break.”
