The Top Dog in Cannes Receives Palm Dog

Forget About the Palme d'Or, What About the Palm Dog?

With all the excitement of the 2008 Cannes Film Festival hitting the Sugar Network, we don't want to forget about our furry, four-legged actors and actresses out there in showbiz! Not only are animals key players in film, but they deserve an award all their own: The Palm Dog.

An event that began in 2001, The Palm Dog is taking place this year right along side heavy hitters like Angelina and Brad at the UK Film Pavilion at Cannes this Friday. Past Palm Dog winners include "Mops" from Marie Antoinette (2006), "Moses" from Dogville (2003), and "Otis" in The Anniversary Party (2001) which starred Jennifer Jason Leigh and her own pup, Otis!

Remember how excited we got about the Corgi-licious winners of The Fidos last fall? I've heard the pooch starring alongside Julianne Moore in Blindness is the early favorite this year! It's hard for me to say – 'cause I couldn't be with those lucky guests to see that opening premiere at Cannes. Sigh. Stay tuned – I'll bring you the winner list as soon as the ceremony wraps up.
