Canine stars honoured at Cannes

Move over, Brad Pitt and Nicole Kidman... the Cannes Film Festival's four-legged stars are in the spotlight with the contest for the event's best canine performance.

The Palm Dog prize was awarded to Smurf and Ged, two terriers from twisted British comedy Sightseers. The runner-up was Billy Bob, companion of an ageing punk rocker in French film Le Grand Soir.

The judges spurned several high-profile performances, including dogs who meet violent ends in Wes Anderson's Moonrise Kingdom and Thomas Vinterberg's The Hunt.

Organiser Toby Rose said the strong contest reflected the "high canine quotient" at Cannes.

Now in its 12th year, the unofficial award was founded as a homage to the festival's main prize, the Palme d'Or.

Last year's winner was Jack Russell terrier Uggie from The Artist.
