For once the Golden Globes got it right. Tonight The Artist, a film that I adore, won best motion picture— musical or comedy, best original score—motion picture, and best actor in a motion picture— musical or comedy for Jean Dujardin (isn’t he lovely?). But what about Uggie? The intrepid Jack Russell and real star of The Artist stole the show once again, interrupting producer Thomas Langmann's acceptance speech with his antics on stage (that dog really is brilliant). But this is just the beginning of the season; there are many more awards to come. So Academy, please take note. This dog deserves an Oscar.
If you're a fan of Uggie's too (and how could you not be) check out the Facebook campaign "Consider Uggie."
