Canine Star in 'The Artist' Gave Oscar Worthy Performance

It’s your typical rags to riches story. Or, perhaps not so typical.

One of the standout stars in the hit film “The Artist” just happens to be a dog. A dog who came from a difficult beginning. He went through two homes as a pup, but was given up due to his rambunctious nature. Uggie, the nine-year-old Jack Russel, was going to be given to the shelter. Just like a hero in the last few moments of a film, animal trainer Omar Von Muller heard about Uggie, and came to his rescue.

Von Muller, who worked in the film industry, took him in and started training him. Soon after, Uggie started scoring roles. Last year he was in the hit film “Water for Elephants,” and this year, he’s a star in one of the most buzzed about films on the awards circuit. “The Artist” may be a film about an aging star struggling with the loss of his wealth and fame, but it’s also a film about loyalty and man’s best friend.

Even though Uggie stars alongside incredible talent like human stars Jean Dujardin, Bérénice Bejo, James Cromwell and John Goodman, I dare you to see this film and take your eyes off Uggie whenever he’s on screen. If “The Artist” wins best musical or comedy at the Golden Globes this weekend, we hope Uggie will get the appreciation he deserves, and perhaps a really good belly rub.
