The man who plays Wilfred was nominated for the dog performer-only Golden Collar awards!
Yes, there are awards for most anything. This is the first year where the Golden Collars are being awarded as a prize for the best performances by dogs in Hollywood. This year’s winner was Uggie, the dog from “The Artist.”
The amusing part about this is that actor Jason Gann was nominated. He stars in both the Australian and American versions of Wilfred, a show he created and stars in as the title character, a dog. Wilfred also stars Elijah Wood. He’s the only one (along with the viewers) that can see Wilfred, not as a four legged buddy, but as a man in a dog costume.
