It's officially award show season! In the event you missed any of these films when they were released, grab some popcorn, add them to your Netflix list and enjoy!
The Dog in The Artist: Uggie is a big-time star, with – get this – a Twitter account. The 10-year-old Jack Russell terrier was a pro acting alongside Jean Dujardin, who was a "great dog handler," according to Uggie's owner and trainer Omar Von Muller.
Joey in War Horse: It took 10 horses – from foal to adult – to play Joey in this Spielberg film. "They were all heroes," said trainer Bobby Lovgren.
Arthur in Beginners: Cosmo is the real name of the soulful little terrier whose thoughts are subtitled in the movie. He did so well in that film because of the "natural connection" he had with his co-star, Ewan McGregor.
Buster in We Bought a Zoo: Weighing in at 1200 pounds, this grizzly named Bart did a phenomenal job. Trainer Doug Seus said Bart's acting inspiration comes from his rewards: "meat, apples, a hug and a 'Good boy.'"
Maximilian in Hugo: It took three identical dogs to play this fierce guard dog.
