Keep on reading to find out how the pup adorably stole the show. 

Twitter fell in love with Regina King's dog

Of all the fashion and inspiring stories shared at the 2021 Golden Globe pre-show virtual red-carpet, it was Regina King's dog that stole the show. But first, let's set the scene. King, who attended the Golden Globes in honor of scoring the Best Director" nomination for her movie, One Night In Miami, stunned in a black and gold off-the-shoulder gown. Speaking to This Is Us actor Susan Kelechi Watson, King gave her pre-show interview seemingly from her hotel room.

Behind King, a sweet dog walked into the actor's zoom camera and took a plop for a nap in his dog bed. The moment had all of Twitter talking. "I am here for Regina King's dog chilling on his doggy bed in the background while she talks to Susan Kelechi Watson — in a stunning dress — in NBC's #GoldenGlobes 2021 preshow," wrote one Twitter user. "Praying we get to see more unexpected pets – like Jared Leto's cockatoo or something..." Another revealed the famous pup's name, writing "I [am] sad to inform you that Cornbread, Regina King's scene-stealing dog, does not have an Instagram. But by the end of tonight he'll have an agent. #GoldenGlobes." Someone else joked, "If you think Regina King did not frame the shot with the dog bed, you are underestimating her as a director."

Not only does Cornbread deserve an agent, but we'd argue the pup deserves a Golden Globe, too. Make it happen, people!
