Our newest Doberman Hollywood movie star is Blackie. He acted alongside Sacha Baron Cohen in the movie Hugo.
Surprisingly he was snubbed by the Golden Collar Awards, not even get a nomination. The Golden Collar Awards is a special event that rewards the best canine actors. The Oscars of the dog world.
Martin Scorsese spoke out strongly on behalf of Blackie, the Doberman movie star. He wrote a letter, pointing out the stigma against actors of the Doberman persuasion. “Jack Russell terriers are small and cute,” “Dobermans are enormous and — handsome. More tellingly, Uggie plays a nice little mascot who does tricks and saves his master’s life in one of the films, while Blackie gives an uncompromising performance as a ferocious guard dog who terrorizes children. I’m sure you can see what I’m driving at.
Do you think Blackie was discriminated against and should have been nominated?
