George Lopez to Host Inaugural ‘World Dog Awards’ on CW

Hollywood is finally throwing its dogs a bone during awards season. The CW will telecast the first ever “The World Dog Awards,” to be hosted by comedian George Lopez at Santa Monica’s Barker Hangar on Jan. 15.

Viewers can throw their paws up for the year’s top canine thesps with the two-hour award show doling out congratulatory wags of the tail for categories including Top TV Dog, Celebrity Dog Selife, America’s Top Mutt and “The Dog’s Life” Achievement Award. The ceremony will even dig up some buried treasure for feline friends with its Most Dog-Like Cat award, celebrating the cat with the most canine personality traits.

The kudos categories also include Best in Film, recognizing the best dog-centric pic of the past 25 years.

“World Dog Awards” is produced by Juma Entertainment in coordination with and for the benefit of the ASPCA and the Pedigree Foundation.
