Even the Humane Society Won't Give Uggie an Award

Who does the most accomplished canine performer in Hollywood have to lick to get some hardware around here? "He's the toast of this year's award season, now Uggie, the Jack Russell star of this year’s Academy Award-winning silent film The Artist, will walk the red carpet and serve as a presenter at the only major award show where animals take center stage - The Humane Society of the United States' 26th Genesis Awards. [...] 'The Genesis Awards are about honoring the animal protection message, not the performance, but if we had an award for a dog who’s become a poster animal for people not giving up on their unruly companion animals, we’d give it to Uggie... now, there’s a thought!', says Beverly Kaskey, senior director and executive producer of the annual Genesis Awards."

    It's a sad day. This, and Luck got canceled on HBO. So...yeah. What a day...

    • S.T. VanAirsdale says:

      I've been dying to cover Luck all day just for the headline potential.

      Poor Mann's Tough Luck Runs Out
      Luck Blown Away Like Dustin the Wind
      Luck Canceled; Glue Factories Reel

      Alas we don't cover TV anymore.

    Oh for the love of Benji, face it: the dog just wasn't that good.

  • we'd love to honour you with an award Uggie - you are the artist. Please, please please will you be a patron of our International Film Festival here in Kilmersdon in the UK. Your film is launching the festival!!! Ken Loach is a patron, Charles Hazlewood is coming to the festival and so is Rob Holder the director of Eliminate: Archie Cookson. Your support would be just fantastic.
    Hope to hear from you soon
    lots of love, Chris. PS can my border terriers, Rosie and Charlie have a photo too???
