    Default NY Times- Lead Equine Actor in War Horse

    He was nominated for an Oscar!

    Just kidding. But he has had a very interesting life.

    I think they need a new Oscar category: Best animal actor in a feature film.

    There is some sort of award program for animal actors. I can't think of the name off the top of my head. It's kind of the Oscars for animals.

    My husband read that last night and said, now we have to go see the movie. Too funny.

    You might be thinking of the Patsy Awards, which were retired in 1986 for lack of funding. Since then, per wikipedia, the American Humane Society has created the Pawscars as of 2011.

    If they did, it would probably go to a dog most of the time. Like the dog this year in The Artist.

    Dogs can "emote" in a way that's easier for most people to read.
