It’s been a difficult week for Uggie the Dog. First, he gets snubbed by the Academy after being overlooked for his scene-stealing performance in Best Picture frontrunner, “The Artist”. And now, having been forced to face his movie mortality, Uggie has announced his retirement from film work altogether.
Hopes are high that Uggie will get to close out his Hollywood career by being invited to present at the Oscars next month. Which is all well and good, but we’re still not over the fact that Uggie won’t be presented with an Oscar of his own. Uggie’s snub got us thinking about other top dogs who put in Oscar worthy performances. So in honor of Uggie, we’ve compiled a list of the top ten tail-wagging roles of all time.
