Martin Scorsese campaigned successfully for 'Hugo' Doberman, but what other animals deserve accolades?
Martin Scorsese knows a thing or two about painful awards snubs. Not this year, mind you, as his cinematic love letter Hugo leads the Oscar race, but certainly in years past. Perhaps that’s why the legendary director felt so compelled to launch a campaign to get Blackie, the law-enforcing Doberman from Hugo, rightfully nominated for a Golden Collar Award. (“I’m proud of Blackie, who laid it on the line and dared to risk the sympathy of her audience. Let’s just say that on the set, she had a fitting nickname: Citizen Canine. The bath scene alone is a masterpiece of underplaying, with Blackie’s wonderfully aquiline face accentuated by the 3-D,” Scorsese wrote in an op-ed for the Los Angeles Times.)

The Grey, Liam Neeson‘s latest January release that features the gruff 59-year-old Irishman screaming at and fighting with every living creature around him, may have gotten a middling review from EW critic Lisa Schwarzbaum, but it still managed to debut with $19.6 million over the weekend, and earned many positive reviews from critics across America. (Audiences issued the film a “B–” CinemaScore grade, with 76 percent giving it an “A” or “B”.) A lot of people, it’s safe to say, were very much on board with the man vs. wolf film.
Here’s the thing, though: The Grey was the most depressing film I’ve seen in years. I disliked every single character in the film. Heck, I was rooting for the wolves to prevail, just so the movie would end! (WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD) READ FULL STORY »
Today the lovely Kristen Bell appears on Ellen and tells the story of her 31st birthday present from her boyfriend, Parenthood‘s Dax Shepard. The Veronica Mars actress apparently has always had sort of a thing for the furry folivores, and when she heard that Shepard had a surprise for her, she said she knew that it just had to involve a sloth. “I didn’t know how to process that … my entire life has been waiting for this moment, waiting to interact with a sloth,” she says.

It’s a sad, sad day in the animal kingdom as arguably one of the most adored pooches of all time hangs up his acting collar. Yes, it’s true: Uggie, the scene-stealing Jack Russell terrier who played sidekick to Jean Dujardin in The Artist, is retiring. His trainers Omar Von Muller and Sarah Clifford have announced that the camera-loving canine is ready to bid farewell to the red carpet at the ripe old age of 10 for scruffier pastures.
Needless to say, it’s been a busy year for Uggie. He first wooed audiences as Queenie in last year’s Water for Elephants and continued his rise in The Artist, where he loyally braved fire to save George Valentin. Plus, the fact that this tiny terrier evoked the ‘Aww’ heard around the world at the Golden Globes when the cast of The Artist took the stage should speak to his star power.
I think I may have found the ultimate cure for the beating the winter-Monday blues: Have your favorite football team head to the Super Bowl (Go Giants!) and then look at photos for the lineup for this year’s painfully adorable Puppy Bowl. Huzzah! Puppies and sports! Take that, rainy January Monday!
Just hours after it was determined that the New York Giants would be facing off against the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI, Animal Planet announced their lineup for Puppy Bowl VIII. Among the unbearably cute pooches competing in the wildly popular televised event (last year saw a staggering 9.2 million people tuning in for Puppy Bowl programming) are a 10-month-old Dachshund named Shiloh (“Fun Fact: Has read all the Harry Potter books”), a floppy-eared 13-week-old Terrier named Marbles (!), and a 14-week-old Miniature Aussie Mix named Tattoo who is so fluffy I’m going to die! Check out the entire lineup here. But, be warned, it’s NSFW — in that you will distract everyone in your office with a torrent of “D’awwwwwwwwww“s!
Puppy Bowl VIII begins at 3 p.m. EST on Sunday, Feb. 5, on Animal Planet. D’awwww.
Hellllluuurrr, Happy Endings fans! As per usual, last night’s hysterical new episode was chock full of we-dare-you-to-keep-up-with-us pop-culture references. (Ali, Entourage, Rear Window, and of course, The Wire, were just some of the inspired gems mentioned.) But, there was a nice little added bonus to all of the whip-fast HE madness: Guest appearances by pop-culture gems Michael McKean, Ed Begley Jr., and Megan Mullally, who was making her second appearance on the show. (Oh yeah, and a racist parrot was there, too.)
You can take the girl out of New York City, but you can’t take the New York out of the girl. Emmy Rossum, star of Showtime’s Shameless, appeared on Chelsea Handler’s show last night and told a story about living in L.A. Explaining how different her new digs were from her natural Big Apple habitat, Rossum said that “a mountain lion came walking through the clearing and was drinking out of my pool, and I didn’t have the fear instinct. I had the New York outraged instinct, and I was like, ‘What the hell are you doing? Get off my property! I’m Brian Fellow!!’”
Thanks to this brilliantly edited mash-up by Brad Hansen for revealing to us the first great truth of 2012: It turns out that this summer’s upcoming The Dark Knight Rises is a rather believable allegory for 1994′s The Lion King.
Are you ready for THE STAMPEDE? I don’t think you’re ready for this stampede. Watch the video:
A new season (?!?!) of Finding Bigfoot premieres Sunday, Jan. 1, at 10 p.m. ET on Animal Planet, and I just might tune in to witness the stunning ineptitude of the “expert team of true believers” in person.
Frankly I cannot fathom why it’s taken them so long to find me, considering I moved to the West Coast SIX MONTHS AGO and have been dying to get discovered! Sometimes I even leave my giant sneakers outside the door in my Melrose Waste of Space apartment complex. How have the true believers not picked up on their stench and size? Yoo-hoo! Experts! I am RIGHT HERE.
