The winner of the Where's Whitey Award for Best Animal Performance of 2012 was actually annouced weeks ago at the Boston Society of Film Critics Award ceremony at the Brattle Theatre on February [thanks to Ellen Gitelman for the photo]
My apologies for keeping you in suspense.
The winner in a hard fought battle was Snoopy, the dog from "Moonrise Kingdom." He had tough competition from a strong field, including a surprising showing from the extinct animals, including the Aurocs in "Beasts of the Southern Wild"
and the Tasmanian Tiger in "The Hunter"
But as you can see, Snoopy is a bit on the extinct side himself.
Congratulations to the winner! And to all the worthy nominees.
Meanwhile, the race for the Where's Whitey? award winner for 2013 is on!
