Well, last night, it was time for Uggie to pick Best Picture and, surprise, he chose THE ARTIST. Clearly this is one smart dog as, odds are, the Academy will agree with him when the actual winner is revealed on the Oscar telecast Sunday night. (Last summer, I beat Uggie's prediction by writing about THE ARTIST as the first potential silent Best Picture winner in 80-odd years.) We still think Uggie deserves a nomination of his own. However there is no Oscar category for Best Supporting Pet....yet.
