The first annual #MEOWSCARS awards ceremony recently took place on Instagram.

“And what exactly is a MEOWSCARS?,” you might ask? Good question!

Because of the way cat pictures and videos dominate social media, a group of professional feline fanciers brought a bunch of people together and honored those fine kitties who sparkle on the social media screen. Just like magic, the MEOWSCARS were announced, complete with a cat-butt-tastic flyer:

Five categories were up for grabs, then two more were added because of popular demand. Entries were open to the public and facilitated via the savvy use of hashtags. The judges included renowned Instagram stars such as Fancy and her Friends, Porkchop and Beans, George and WheezyGremlin, and Séamus and Angus to ensure that entrants were held to only the highest of shared cat photo standards.

Here are your winners.

Best-Dressed Cat

The victor of the Best-Dressed Cat category went to the appropriately-named Ingmar Purrrgman. This foppish feline just loves to dress up in the fanciest finery in all of the land, and also apparently has a thing for “laying around in old shoes.”

This hotly contested category was bested by a charismatic cat called Juicee. “I am very happy that I managed to put a smile on your faces with my videos,” she said in her very gracious acceptance speech. You can check out some of Juicee’s most poignant work in her “Watch Me” video.

Best Director

Ever wondered what a cat-centric version of the movie Jaws would look like? Allow Ms. Sauerkraut Kitty‘s epic directorial vision to provide the answer. Spine-tingling stuff indeed.

Best Cat Loaf

With the cat loafing phenomenon showing no signs of slowing, it’s only right that the discipline’s foremost artists are honored at the MEOWSCARS. It would not be inappropriate for you to literally stand and salute Cornelius’ outstanding gingerbread loaf.

Best Cat Villain

A life of devious deeds and shady shenanigans beckons when you’re named Evil Cat Coco — so it’s only right that this feisty tuxedo kitty took home the Best Cat Villain award.

Best Video

Gary the bearded cat is a real deal silver screen star in the making (and we’ll have an interview with him very soon). Thanks to his turn in this eerie “edge of your seat production,” he was always a sure thing for the prestigious Best Video category.

Cutest Couple

Ready your handkerchiefs: The footage of ChaCha and Chico, cruelly separated by a glass sliding door, is a tender tear-jerker for the ages. Their role in a remake of Titanic is surely a given.
