Uggy, the plucky Jack Russell from The Artist, Michel Hazanavicius's gorgeous silent-movie pastiche, triumphed in the race for the coveted Palm Dog, awarded for best canine turn. Laika, a strong favourite for his performance in Aki Kaurismäki's Le Havre, had to settle for the special Jury Prize. The winner receives a rather lovely collar.
