The Artist's Uggie Fetches a Golden Collar Award
Posted 02.14.12 by Mandy
Uggie, the canine star of The Artist and Water for Elephants, snagged a win at the Golden Collar Awards after a double nomination in the Best Dog in a Theatrical Film category. Uggie was competing against the dogs who starred in Young Adult, Beginners, 50/50, and Hugo. The Jack Russell's trainer, Omar Von Muller, announced last month that the pooch would be retiring, so this Golden Collar is a great way to cap his Hollywood career. The 10-year-old terrier also received the Palm Dog for his work in The Artist at the Cannes Film Festival.
Other winners from last night's award ceremony included Modern Family's French bulldog Brigitte, who plays Stella on the sitcom, and Rody from Marley & Me: The Puppy Years, who took the prize in the Best Dog in a Direct-to-DVD category.
