UPDATE: Uggie was two for three, correctly predicting that Meryl Streep would win Best Actress and his own movie, “The Artist,” would win Best Picture. His one faux paw was picking George Clooney for Best Actor; that honor went to … “The Artist’s” Jean Dujardin!

Uggie, the adorable Jack Russell terrier from the Oscar-nominated film “The Artist” has been everywhere lately, and his latest stop was a stint on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Now break out your Oscar pools, because Kimmel bribed the pooch with hot dogs and asked Uggie to make Oscar picks for the top three categories. To see who Uggie says will win Best Actor and Best Actress, watch the videos below, and to see who the Ugg-ster picked for Best Picture, watch the clip above.
