Today in Celebrity Dog News: RIP Tom Hanks' Dog Monty + Uggie Nabs Golden Collar Award

1. Very sadly, Tom Hanks' dog Monty (pictured above) passed away yesterday. "Deep brown eyes, noble demeanor, finest dog ever. A sad day. Goodbye Big Boy. Hanx," Hanks tweeted. [via Oh No They Didn't!]

Sources close to the actress say that after visiting the Best Friends Animal Society in Utah, the actress "fell in love with a shepherd mix." [via Contact Music]


3. Dog News Daily has announced the first ever Golden Collar Awards, to honor the best on-screen performances by dogs. Those up for the "best dog in a theatrical film" award include Cosmo (from Beginners), Denver (from 50/50) Hummer (from Young Adult) and of course, Uggie (from The Artist). [via The Washington Post]

4. Golden Collar Awards are all well and good, but why can't Uggie, who totally steals The Artist, be nominated for an Oscar? Susan Orlean, who has a new book out about '50s canine movie star Rin Tin Tin, explains in a recent NPR interview: "The story was that [Rin Tin Tin] was in line to get the first Best Actor award. It was the first year the Oscars were being given out. It wouldn't have been unheard of. He was a huge box-office star. It wasn't a crazy idea. He was that popular and he was that seriously regarded as an actor. But the academy, according to the story, believed that this new idea of handing out these Oscars could possibly be damaged by the first Best Actor being a dog even though everyone loved Rin Tin Tin." Not fair!


5. Jon Hamm and girlfriend Jennifer Westfeldt got animated for the new PBS show Martha Speaks. And so did their German Shepherd mix, Cora!  [via USA Today]
