The Golden Globe Award show this year was pretty entertaining, though most of its appeal came from the extreme photo bombing. Now, however, there’s been a new award created to honor the real stars of Hollywood: dogs. The Golden Collar Awards will be given out by Dog News Daily and will honor the pups that completely took your attention away from the more well known actors.
The front runner this year might be Uggie, aka the dog you were watching instead of listening to the Golden Globe acceptance speech when The Artist won best comedy. He’s been busy this year and was able to snag to nominations for his tail wagging and bounding in The Artist and Water For Elephants.
Uggie will compete against three of his fellow canine thespians, Cosmo in Beginners, Denver from 50/50 and Hummer from Young Adult.
That’s some stiff competition. I’m rooting for Denver, because he seemed the least loved (the character’s name was skeletor, not terribly cuddly). What’s more important is the Golden Collar star awarding some lifetime achievement awards, and like the Golden Globes extend into television.
I’ll start the TV nominations. Best dog in a television series: Stella from Modern Family. That’s a funny little bulldog.
