A pocket-sized canine gets a whole page in Time's "Great Performances" feature, a tribute to this year's standout actors. Uggie, a trained Jack Russell Terrier, is fast gaining recognition for his scenestealing turn in The Artist. In photographer Sebastian Kim's "Great Performances" series, he stole the limelight from fellow honorees Rooney Mara (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), Brad Pitt (Moneyball) and George Clooney (The Descendants). Even the great Iron Lady herself, Meryl Streep, is no match for the lapdog's woeful demeanor.
Every dog has its day. This year, Uggie has the world by the tail.
