The Artist’s Uggie and Red Dog’s Koko win big at Golden Collar Awards

Continuing The Artists domination of the 2012 awards’ circuit, star Uggie was named Best Dog in a Theatrical Film for his stirring performance in the black-and-white silent film at the 1st Annual Golden Collar Awards.

The Jack Russell Terrier beat out Beginners‘ Cosmo, 50/50‘s Denver and Young Adults Hummer. Uggie was also nominated in the same category for his gender-bending turn as Queenie in Water for Elephants.

Sadly, what with the Academy’s ongoing refusal to acknowledge animal performances, the much-deserved Oscar will be forever out of the retiring Uggie’s grasp.

Australia’s own Red DogKoko, nabbed the Best Dog in a Foreign Film category. You can see his acceptance speech below.
