The star of the Oscar-nominated film The Artist is making a press appearance at the Empire State Building today.
No, not Jean Du-whatever.
I’m talking about Uggie, the nine-year-old Jack Russell terrier who is currently nominated for two Golden Collar Awards (for The Artist and Water for Elephants).
Top that, Meryl Streep!
Uggie’s official bio?
“He began his studio career shortly after he was adopted by professional animal trainer Omar von Muller.
“Uggie starred in a number of television commercials for everything from dog food, cars, beer, and much more.
“He traveled with the ‘Incredible Dogs Show’ to Puerto Rico, Venezuela, Mexico and Miami, performing live tricks and riding his skateboard.
“His first movie Mr. Fix It, starring David Boreanaz, was shot when he was 1½ years old, and was followed by What’s Up Scarlett, Wassup Rockers, Disney’s Life Is Ruff, and most recently a featured role in the film Water For Elephants, where he plays the role of “Queenie.'”
Wait a minute. Queenie???
Is Uggie a closeted gay?
If so, get ready for them to drag up some “bitch” to accompany him to the Empire State Building today!
