It's a Pawscar for Uggie the dog

While "The Artist" is expected to do well at the Feb. 26 Oscars, the film has some new hardware for the mantle courtesy of its four-legged cast member. Uggie won a Pawscar.

The Jack Russell terrier took home the prize on Thursday (Feb. 9) for "Best Scene Stealer" at the competition put on by the American Humane Association.

"Not only did Uggie steal the hearts of [the] audience, he also stole the hearts of his co-stars," the AHA says in a release. "Uggie even managed to continue stealing the spotlight when the camera person at the Golden Globes couldn't take the camera off him during the cast's acceptance speech as 'The Artist' won Best Film."

Other winners include "War Horse," "Dolphin Tale" and "Mr. Popper's Penguins" (for Best Dressed, of course). In the "Best Speaking Role, Ever" category, the winner was Cosmo from the Ewan McGregor and Christopher Plummer film "Beginners."
