Watch Uggie with his award!

There's a new award specially for acting dogs - and no surprises who's won it... Yes, Uggie of course!

The star of the award-tastic film The Artist was given the first annual Golden Collar award for his performance in the black-and-white silent film.

Uggie's already picked up the Palm Dog Award at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival.

His trainer said: "I think it's very important because people don't realise how many hours we put into training these dogs into becoming movie stars."

The Artist is racking up lots of awards. It won seven Baftas in London on Sunday night, including best film, best director and best actor - and it looks favourite to win big at the Oscars.
