If there is one thing that America loves more than a live awards show, it's dogs. The CW aims to capitalize on both by launching a new kudo: The World Dog Awards.

Yes, the entire world of dogs will be awarded. That includes the noble animals who risk their lives in the military and offer their assistance as medical service animals — and also dogs from entertainment and viral videos.

For the performance-focused canines, studios should find some relief in the fact that these awards will take place during the traditional Hollywood award season. The inaugural show is set to debut this coming January 2015. Watch your back, Golden Globes.

This is an inclusive event, so a CW release touting the event assures that dogs of "every size and breed" will be there for the show at Santa Monica's Barker Hanger. (The yet-to-be-named host can thank the venue for providing at least one monologue joke.)

A full list of categories is not immediately available, but they will include "Best Actor in a Supporting Role to a Dog," so humans are evidently also welcome. There will also be a dog-related expo accompanying the event and a green carpet.
