Uggie the dog may have not won an Oscar directly for his role in The Artist, but the 10-year-old Jack Russell stole the show on Sunday for his cute looks and crafty stunts.
Uggie was looking his best; sporting a custom-made Chopard bowtie, made of an 18-card gold bone shaped charm and satin, according to US Weekly. The tie was designed by Chopard's Co-President and Artistic Director, Caroline Schedule.
The pooch was washed, groomed and blow dried before him out on his bowtie, according to the Daily Mail.
The Oscars marked the end of Uggie's acting career, after the terrier was diagnosed with a neurological disorder, which will require him to retire from film.
'Uggie has a schedule to rival any star in this town,' Cindi Berger, chairman and CEO of PMK BNC public relations, told the Daily Mail.

According to Uggie's trainer, Omar Von Muller, the dog suffered through his disorder during the shooting of The Artist. It comes and goes, he told the Daily Mail. It is a shame this has happened when he is getting the biggest success of his career, but we feel the best thing to do is to retire him after the Oscars.
The terrier took to the stage to pick up the prize for Best Picture, alongside The Artist's director, Michel Hazanavicius, stars Jean Dujardin, Berenice Bejo and other cast and crewmembers.
Sarah Clifford, who helped train Uggie for the film, said he had a great set of dramatic skills. There was a take where Uggie actually reached out and tried to pull the gun out of his (Jean's) hand with his mouth. He put his mouth on Jean's hand and started pulling his hand. We were so stunned. He wasn't told to do that, she told US Weekly.
Uggie may still take part in a few commercials, but he will no longer take part in films, the Daily Mail reported.
