There were plenty of reasons to celebrate Sunday night as many a famous face left the Academy Awards with a new prize.
But we noticed the Oscars left out a category – Best Dog Ever – so we're going to hand out a belated award on the Academy's behalf.

Home. Some pets never have one to call their own. We'd like to help change that by introducing you to an extraordinary adoptable pet every week. Today, meet Max, a handsome husky who charms everyone that he meets.
This stunningly beautiful pup, who is 3 to 4-years-old, arrived at the Eleventh Hour Rescue in Rockaway, N.J., two weeks ago from an over-crowded Ohio shelter. While his full back story is unknown, Max's coat is in such pristine condition it's believed he was never a stray.
Before he was even 2 years old, toddler Dylan Lipton-Lesser had undergone 15 brain surgeries due to a condition known as hydrocephalus, an excessive buildup of fluid inside the brain. But there's an upside – he's been able to find comfort in a friend who's experienced something similar: puppy Frank, a Chihuahua-dachshund mix with the same condition.
"As a very young puppy Frank clearly had a really big head," Amy McCracken, executive director of the no-kill shelter Richmond Animal League told TODAY.com. "We transfer animals from municipal shelters that are in danger of being euthanized, and that's how we got Frank."
Frank was placed with a foster family, and aside from suffering a seizure at 8 weeks old, thrived under their care and with regular doses of a seizure-controlling drug. When it became clear that concerns over his medical care were preventing potential adopters from signing on the dotted line, Frank's foster parents were prepared to make him their forever pet – until Stacy Metz stepped in.
The Winter Olympics may be over and the crowds have packed up and left Sochi, but the stray dogs that captured the world's attention are still there. And so is Oleg Deripaska, the Russian billionaire who developed much of the area and is now determined to do what he can to shelter and find homes for the area's estimated 4,000 dogs.
"It is a problem, a big problem," says Deripaska in an exclusive interview with PEOPLE, while flipping through countless photos of strays on his cellphone. "Here, look," he tells his visitor a moment later, pointing to a picture of ten puppies in a cardboard box. "Somebody dropped these off at our shelter a few days ago."
