Doberman Movie Star Snubbed

doberman movie star Blackie from Hugo

Our newest doberman Hollywood movie star is Blackie. He acted alongside of Sacha Baron Cohen in the movie Hugo.

Surprisingly he was snubbed by the Golden Collar Awards  and didn’t even get a nomination.  Martin Scorsese  spoke out strongly on behalf of Blackie, the doberman movie star.

Do you think Blackie should have been nominated?

Scorsese Speaks Out For Blackie

    Hello! I’m new here, and am not sure how to register/navigate as of yet. However. I wanted to mention that I saw Scorsese do an interview with Blackie – on a couch, with her head on his lap! I hope that showed some people how mellow they are – or at least my four have been – and what “lap dogs” they can be!

    SHE!!! People SHE!!!! is a beautiful dog I have not seen the movie yet as I am in Western Australia! But can’t wait for it to come here. You know what they say “Life’s a Bitch” She’s one of the few “Blackies” I like!
    Good Stuff Mr Scorsese!

    Sure she should have been nominated. But I think Scorsese makes a good point about the type of character Blackie played – which is a typical part for a Doberman in a movie. I think Hollywood and movie viewers all over the country would benefit from seeing a Doberman in a “hero” role or as a family dog. There are so many real stories that could feature a Doberman in those kinds of roles. Even (perhaps especially) an animated film for kids would make a great difference. I’m tired of seeing Dobermans typecast in roles that don’t accurately reflect the friendly, loyal, and sometimes goofy personality that we know defines the breed.

  4. Yes, he should absolutely been nominated for a number of Awards. As a former owner of two wonderful Dobermans, I feel “Blackie” did an outstanding acting/performing job in “Hugo”. His response to commands were superb and he is a beautiful, intelligent, representation of the breed of the Doberman Pinscher.

    I think he should have gotten the Golden Paw Award for best male dog actor in a live animation film.
