“At the Oscars halftime, I like to switch over to the Puppy Oscars,” Colbert said, “which we had to make ourselves because they don’t exist.”

Stephen Colbert’s “Puppy Oscars” Award Show

Who needs the Oscars when you have the PUPPY OSCARS?

Your move, Puppy Bowl.

On Monday’s episode of The Late Show, Stephen Colbert rounded up a bunch of adorable puppies, who are all available for adoption, to recreate the ceremony. The pups, dressed up in outfits they can’t quite move around in, strut their stuff on the red carpet and recreate scenes from Best Picture nominees.

About justin

Justin grew up a country boy in a female-dominated family that smoothed him into the softie he is today. A Seattle radio personality since 2007, he's perfected the art of never taking himself seriously and isn't afraid to cry at movies. Find him riding a scooter (nicknamed "Ivy" after Blue Ivy Carter) through the mean streets of Queen Anne in Seattle or twitter-stalking the Seattle Mariners!
