Martin Scorsese, who wrote an editorial in the Los Angeles Times that inspired a write-in campaign for the Doberman in his Oscar-nominated movie “Hugo,” appeared at the ceremony by video. His star dog, Blackie, lost out to Uggie, who was nominated twice in his category (for both “The Artist” and “Water for Elephants.”)

Other winners included French bulldog Brigitte, who plays Stella on TV’s “Modern Family,” and Hercules of “Pit Boss,” who tied with Giggy of “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” for best dog in a reality television series.

Florida model chosen for Sports Illustrated cover

She’s a Florida girl who’s comfortable in a bikini, and now 19-year-old model Kate Upton is on the cover of the 2012 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue.

She wears a tiny red-and-brown, sparkle-covered string bikini with a view of the waters of Australia behind her as she poses for the magazine cover, which was unveiled on Monday night on “Late Show with David Letterman” on CBS.

“That was one of the first photos from the first shoot,” she said in a telephone interview before the big reveal. “It was my favorite swimsuit. … I felt sexy in it but confident.”

Miss Upton, 5 feet 10, was born in Michigan but raised in Florida. Her hometown is Melbourne, on the state’s east coast.

“In Florida, people walk around in their flip-flops, bikinis and jean shorts, so I’m very comfortable in a bathing suit,” she said.

The 2012 magazine cover is her second time appearing in the annual SI issue that’s the equivalent of the Super Bowl for models. Last year, when Irina Shayk was on the cover, Miss Upton was chosen as rookie of the year.

Bonnaroo acts to include Radiohead, Chili Peppers, Phish

The reunited Beach Boys will celebrate sunshine and summer at the 2012 Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival with Radiohead, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Phish and Bon Iver.

The always eclectic four-day festival also will include Skrillex, Foster the People, the Avett Brothers, the Shins, the Roots and Alice Cooper on the 700-acre farm in Manchester, Tenn, according to the Associated Press. Bonnaroo will be held June 7 through 10.

The lineup has something of a ripped-from-the-headlines feel. Several acts had notable nights Sunday at the Grammy Awards. The reunited Beach Boys lineup of Brian Wilson, Mike Love, Al Jardine, Bruce Johnston and David Marks made their live debut at the awards, joined on stage by Foster the People.

Bon Iver won best new artist, Skrillex took home three trophies and two-time Grammy winners the Civil Wars are scheduled to play just a few weeks before singer Joy Williams’ baby is due.

The Chili Peppers will play Bonnaroo as new Rock and Roll Hall of Fame members.
