VIDEO: Adorable, Grateful Puppet Stands in for Wes Anderson at Awards Ceremony
See, Mo'Nique? When you've got better things to do than drop by an awards ceremony to pick up your hardware, just find an animated stand-in who can express your gratitude. If you need to borrow one, check with Wes Anderson; he is on the practice's cutting-edge, having last night deployed his Fantastic Mr. Fox character Weasel to pick up the National Board of Review award for Special Achievement in Filmmaking. Click through for the video.
It bears noting that Anderson himself was also on hand to say a personal word of thanks, but still. Baby steps, Mo'Nique. Which critter would she be anyway? The rabid beagle? Mrs. Bean, with the meat cleaver? The mind reels. Make this happen.
