Corgis win big at dog film awards

A corgi

A pack of corgis were the big stars at the first ever film prizes to reward the pooches you see on the big screen.

Poppy, Anna, Alice, Oliver and Megan took home the awards for best historical hounds and best in world at the first ever Fido Film Awards.

The dogs played their part in a film called The Queen, which starred one Britain's most famous actresses, Dame Helen Mirren.

Another Corgi, called Travis, took home a prize too for best comedy canine.

Travis had to play a disabled dog in the movie, and had to learn how to move around using a special wheelchair.

Dame Helen said about her corgi pals "I know one should avoid acting with animals and children but these little chaps were a pleasure to work with and deserve all the plaudits for their fine performances."
