Though the 10-year-old star of The Artist is slated to perform at the Academy Awards on Feb. 26, he's one step ahead of his costars and crew. On Thursday, the American Humane Association gave the Jack Russell terrier the Pawscar for Best Scene Stealer.

Given out each year in recognition of the year's best animal performances and the proper treatment of animals on movie sets, the Pawscars also recognized War Horse and its equine stars for utilizing movie magic to simulate an endangered animal without hurting the creature, and the Adam Sandler comedy Jack & Jill for recreating the sight of a cockatoo in a chocolate fountain via green screen and computer imaging.

The Duchess of Cambridge is renowned for her poise and grace. But she needed some assistance – from none other than Steven Spielberg's wife – at a crucial moment of the War Horse premiere Sunday in London.

Spielberg has revealed that his wife, actress Kate Capshaw, was passing tissues to Kate, who turned 30 on Monday, as the film's story hit a particularly moving section.

Asked if Kate was in a "right state," he told the BBC on Monday that he was sitting between the duchess and his wife. "At one point my wife, who was sitting to my right ... passed a Kleenex to the Duchess of Cambridge. I just saw the Kleenex going across my face."
