And the Oscar Goes To…


The red carpet has been laid out I know you’re all abuzz about tonight’s Academy Awards.


The critics and pundits continue to speculate about the winners – as well as the surrounding controversy. There seems to have been a noticeable lack of diversity among some of the nominating categories. Notably, the complete absence of canine representation.

For the Academy’s consideration, I offer the following nominations: For Best Animated Feature:

Pup Class_DSC_5749

Best Short Subject:

Puppy Class_DSC_4767

Best Costume Design:


Best Visual Effects:

Golden Tatoo_DSC_2229

Best Foreign Language Film:


Best Actress:


Best Actor:


Best in a Supporting Role:

Booker Going Home_DSC_9678

Best in a Leading Role:


Best Photography:


Best Director:


Best Picture:


The best picture always goes to “going homes.”

    1. You would not believe her age if I told you, and if I tell you, she will kill me. Let’s just say “past medicare eligible.” She’s amazing!

  1. …And the Oscars for “Best Screenplay and Best Supporting Blogger” go to ….AUDREY!!!!!! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ†πŸŽ­πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽˆπŸ‘‘

  2. I would watch the Oscars if they gave the awards to people who spend their lives making a difference, like you. But a bunch of over paid movie stars? No thanks. Your dogs are much more natural beauties!

  3. Audrey…you are amazing and talented! This is so clever. I agree with Selim…you get the award for Best Supporting Blogger!!!

  4. Oh, this is wonderful! I love it and I enjoyed it more than the human Oscars (most of which I forgot to watch, not having seen a movie since 2008). Great choices for winners! BTW, I feel stupid asking this, but is Best Actor my Woody? I should know my own dog, but there is another dog that looks so much like him that I often can’t tell who is who. So, if it’s Woody, I need to know so that I can give him his award here. πŸ˜‰ Thanks!

      1. I’ll definitely give him a hug from you! And he still gets a hug and treat from me since I told him he MAY have won and he’ll now be heartbroken and get all ‘dramatic’ on me. πŸ˜‰
