Purdey cropIt’s January… the red carpet is being rolled out… I’ve got my manicurist on speed dial.    It can only mean one thing:  yes, it’s time for my PAWS awards!

For those of you who don’t already know, PAWS stands for ‘Purdey’s Awards for Worldwide Stardom’.   It’s a bit like the BAFTAs and the Golden Globes, except that it’s my own acting skills that are in the spotlight – oh, and those of my furry friends, Angel and Ponyo.    We’re known for our versatility, dedication and vocal range.   Well, Ponyo is known mostly for her fluffiness.

There have been some very illustrious winners of PAWS awards over the years.   Last year, the winner was… er, let’s see… myself, and in 2012… ah, yes, I won again.   Goodness me, I really am very talented.

This year, to make things more democratic, I think we’ll have a poll.    I will keep this open until I’m in the lead… 21st February, when the winner will be announced.    I don’t know if you’ll be allowed to vote more than once, so please consider the nominations very carefully, basing your choice on acting ability and artistic interpretation.  This year, I have got to say, we have pulled out every whisker to bring you the lowest budget productions.

Here, without further ado, are my nominations…

and the nominations from Ponyo and Angel…

Voting has now closed in Purdey’s PAWS Awards 2014 – but you can still view the poll below, and you can see all the media coverage of the Awards Ceremony here!
