As another movie year comes to a close, it's time to look back at the biggest film-related stories of 2012 and take stock of all the highs and lows. And while there certainly were some major movie highs this year — from acclaimed period pieces to crowd-pleasing blockbusters to surprise comedy hits — frankly, we're more than happy for 2012 to be over.
That's because, as cool as the action was on screen, the headlines being made off-screen were often sad, disappointing or downright terrifying to think about. So let's look back at the year that was — and hope that 2013 is a whole hell of a lot more fun. Get More »
One of the most heartwarming stories and performances of the year was that of Uggie the dog in the Best Picture-winning silent film "The Artist." After stealing hearts across the globe, the Jack Russell terrier became so beloved that there was actually a grassroots campaign to get him a Best Supporting Actor nomination. He was just so darn cute.Which makes this latest news even more shocking: According to his own new autobiography, "Uggie: My Story," Uggie the dog actually began his career in the most heinous fashion possible: He murdered an innocent kitten.

The mustache isn't just facial hair. It's an art form, one few are able to master.
In honor of Movember, we salute some of the finest examples of the mustache in cinema, from Robert Pattinson's bizarre turn as Salvador Dali in "Little Ashes" to Tom Selleck in just about everything. The extreme levels of testosterone may make you feel a little woozy, but that's all part of the awesome.

Every movie star needs a juicy memoir to his or her name and Uggie the dog is no different. Although it will probably be pretty G-rated compared to other stars' tell-all autobiographies, Uggie has plenty of waggy tales to tell for his upcoming book "Uggie: My Story."
And what a story! The little Jack Russell terrier stole screen time from dreamy Jean Dujardin in "The Artist" and appeared in "Water for Elephants" with Reese Witherspoon and Robert Pattison. He's currently working as the spokesdog for Nintendo after rumors of retirement, and he was a guest at the White House Correspondents' Dinner over the weekend.

Jean Dujardin is an Oscar-winning actor. It wasn't always this way.
The past will always come back to haunt you, and in this case the past takes the form of "Brice de Nice," a 2005 French film in which "The Artist" himself plays the title role, a platinum blonde spoiled rich teenager of 30 who fancies himself a surfer (even though he's never actually surfed). After he suddenly finds himself penniless, he decides to rob a bank -- and indulges the opportunity to perform a rap number while he's at it (after hitting a guy in the face with his surfboard and saying he wants to "make a withdrawal").
