Glory is at the tips of my whiskers… time for Purdey’s PAWS Awards 2013!

Purdey cropAnother star-studded year has rolled around, and we find ourselves treading the red carpet once again, confident in the expectation of a BAFTA, an Oscar and a Golden Globe.

So much talent, so many costly productions, so much drama… I’m thinking purely of myself here.  This is the second year of the PAWS – Purdey’s Awards for Worldwide Stardom – invented so that my acting abilities receive the recognition that they deserve. 

Like last year, I’m generously allowing my fluffy friend, Ponyo, to have a chance of fame.  I notice that Ponyo’s roles have been fairly passive of late.  You won’t see her doing her own stunts!  Two words, Pon:  Workout DVD.

Anyway, all you have to do is vote for me… I mean, vote for your favourite movie and favourite actor.   The winner will receive a beautiful golden fir cone, and hopefully a largish piece of cheeeese.  Ah, cheeese…

To cast your vote, please use the ‘Comments’ form at the bottom of the page, and feel free to leave some praise, too.  I don’t mind if it’s lavish.    The winner will be announced when I’m in the lead, sometime in February.   Thank you for voting!

  1. I vote for Ponyo in the “Hangover” she does this very well, perfect acting skills right there! Although I was tempted by Purdey in Paranormal Activity! I think you should open the competition to all your readers and let them submit some! that would be fun! x

  2. Susan Abernethy says:

    “Phantom Menace” is a winner in my book Jo!

  3. I’ve never before realised how tough it must be to decide who gets an Oscar. Both actors represented here would be worthy winners but I think my vote goes to Purdey for A Passage to India.

    • That is a very discerning and diplomatic answer, Lorna – thank you! Purdey enjoyed her role in A Passage to India but she was disappointed to find that it didn’t involve any travel.

  4. It was a tough call, but my vote goes to Purdey for her sterling work in Jaws 2 – a very impressive set of gnashers! Close runner up is Ponyo in The Hangover.

    • Purdey was unsure about her ‘Jaws’ role but a pheasant feather brought out exactly the right kind of emotions. ‘The Hangover’ is a film just made for Ponyo, however! Thanks for your vote!

  5. Lovely photos!
    One vote goes for “The Hunger Games” and one for “Pride and Prejudice”.
    I don’t know if I’m allowed, but I love these two photos.
