'We want to extend a huge congratulations to our friend @jamieleecurtis for her SAG wins this past weekend!', wrote Paw Works on their social media.
Jamie Lee Curtis recently won the award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role for her film, "Everything Everywhere All at Once," at the 2023 SAG Awards. But she sure has another reason to cherish her victory. A group of canines celebrated her win by dressing up in some of her iconic roles, as reported by PEOPLE. The adorable canines are from a non-profit animal rescue organization, Paw Works. An animal rescue organization started in 2014, based in Southern California. It has helped rescue more than 12,500 abandoned dogs.
The photographs of these rescued canines were posted on their Instagram page on Tuesday. They were pictured in their special outfits and placed next to Curtis' shots from her movies. The post was captioned, "We want to extend a huge congratulations to our friend @jamieleecurtis for her SAG wins this past weekend! To show our admiration and appreciation for you and your work, some of our rescues (with the help of their humans 😜) have replicated some of your memorable personas!"
The pups dressed up in her characters from the movies, "Everything Everywhere All at Once," "Halloween," "Knives Out," "Christmas with the Kranks," "Trading Places," "True Lies" and "A Fish Called Wands." Each canine costume was inspired by the original character. One among them wore a red outfit along with a wig that looked similar to Curtis's role in "Christmas with the Kranks."
The actor had earlier worked with the organization when she honored Betty White and her dedication to animal welfare during the "In Memoriam" segment of the Oscars in 2022. She had brought a Chihuahua mix named Mac & Cheese, who was up for adoption. Later, Mac & Cheese was adopted by John Travolta, which made the organization's efforts to celebrate the special actress.
In her acceptance speech on Sunday at SAG Awards 2023, Curtis said, "I'm wearing the wedding ring that my father gave my mother. They hated each other, by the way, by the end of it," referencing her star parents, Tony Curtis and Janet Leigh. "But my sister Kelly and I were born from love. My father was from Hungary, and my mother was from Denmark, and they had nothing, and they became these monstrous stars in this industry. My parents were actors. And I married an actor [Christopher Guest]."She continued, "I love actors. I love acting. I love the job we get to do. I love being a part of a crew. I love being part of a cast. I love what we do with each other. It's such a beautiful job." "And I know that so many people in our industry who are actors who don't get to do this job, and you look at nights like this and think, 'Is that ever going to be possible for me?' And I know you look at me and think, 'Well, nepo baby, that's why she's there' — and I totally get it. But the truth of the matter is I'm 64 years old, and this is just amazing!"
