The Fido Film Awards

Stephen Frears' film The Queen has already won a number of awards (now 59 in total) including the best actress Academy Award for title star Helen Mirren. Now it's the turn of Poppy, Anna, Oliver and Megan, the canine leads (no pun intended), as the corgis from the film have won in the inaugural Fido Film Awards in London last night. Whatever next?

  • Best overall - Helen Mirren's corgis in The Queen
  • Historical Hounds - Corgis Anna, Alice, Megan, Oliver and Poppy in The Queen
  • Best Action Movie - Unnamed hunting dog in Shooter
  • Comedy Canine - Mixed corgi, Travis in Year of the Dog
  • Short Film - Harvey, the Welsh terrier in Dog Flap
  • Best at London Film Festival - Petra, breed uncertain, in Far North

Congratulations to you all, take a bow(wow).
