We’ve all heard about the Grammy Awards and the Academy Awards. But, what about the Golden Collar Awards? The first annual Golden Collar Awards was held earlier this month in Los Angeles to celebrate and honor dogs in film. It’s no surprise that Uggie, the four-legged star of “The Artist” and “Water for Elephants” was the big winner of the day, taking 2 of the 5 nominations for Best Dog in a Theatrical Film and winning for his role in “The Artist.” So, who else took home an award? Read on…
- Best Dog in a Foreign Film – Koko in “Red Dog“
- Best Dog in a Television Series – Brigitte in “Modern Family”
- Best Dog in a Direct-to-DVD Film – Rody in “Marley & Me: The Puppy Years”
- Best Dog in a Reality Television Series (tie) – Hercules in “Pit Boss”
- Best Dog in a Reality Television Series (tie) – Giggy in “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills”
