On the weekend of the recently completed Oscars where Leonardo DiCaprio stole the show, finally scooping his first Oscar, another highly anticipated cinematic event was taking place: The 2016 ‘Cat’s Meow Awards’.
Established to commemorate the “unparalleled cinematic impact that cute and cuddly cats have had in 2015,” the 2016 Cat’s Meow Awards combines two of the world’s most powerful artistic forces: award shows and Internet cats.
Check how awesome that combination…
Who was nominated for the Cat Oscars?
Brought to you by Meow Mix brand — the makers of popular cat food and the iconic “Meow, meow, meow, meow” jingle — the awards feature nominations from more than 25,000 cat enthusiasts in such award cat-egories as “Best Cat Napper,” “Best Kitty Hijinks,” and “Wild Cat Card.”

‘Wild Cat Card’ nominees

All of these nominees and winners not only embody the best Internet cat moments of 2015, but also highlight the one-of-a-kind (and often hilarious) bond that only cats and humans share. And as if cats needed more confidence, the lucky nominees and winners take home honor, prestige, and the knowledge that Meow Mix ‘real meat’ treats will always be there to celebrate their impressive achievements.
They sure give Best Picture nominee “Mad Max: ‘Furry’ Road” a run for its money, don’t they?
