Uggie may have been unfairly denied an Academy Award nomination, but his legacy is cemented regardless. The furry star of “The Artist” has become the first dog to have his paws imprinted at¬†Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood. I couldn’t decide which photo was the most adorable, so I downloaded a bunch. Enjoy — and congrats, Uggie!¬†[Photos: WENN]

Whenever Winona really loves something, she refers to it as “Dream Life Status.” Dream Life Status seems like a pretty fitting way to describe what it might be like to hang out with “The Artist” star Uggie and Walking Handsome Eyebrows actor Ian Somerhalder. I just watched Somerhalder in the all-together terrible movie “Rules of Attraction” (I don’t recommend it, but I totally recommend it, if you know what I mean), and he is dreamy. He and Uggie met and hung out (sadly without me) at the Genesis Awards, the Humane Society’s award show to raise public awareness about animal issues.

I mean, Reese Witherspoon made “Just Like Heaven” after winning the Best Actress Oscar for “Walk the Line,” and stars like Brad Pitt and George Clooney have tons of endorsement deals. So why not, Uggie? Go ahead and get yours, buddy. [YouTube]

An Open Letter To The Academy On Behalf Of Uggie

Dear members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences,

My mom says I am many things, among them: smart, hilarious, beautiful, pretty, extremely shed-y, bitchy, loud, psycho, trouble-making, and loving. One adjective she would not use to describe me is “talented.” Don’t worry — she accepts full responsibility for the fact that my sole trick is catching a ball in my mouth. I learned to pin down my soft, squeaky toy and hump it, but my mom says that while it’s funny and adorable, it is not really a talent that wins awards. But that’s why I’m writing — I think dogs should be able to win big awards for their talents, in particular their talents on the big screen. And so, I write to you to urge you to allow Uggie, the dog from “The Artist,” a shot at winning an Oscar at the 2012 Academy Awards. Keep reading »
