the statuette

Telegatto (a composition of tele(visione) and gatto which means "cat", since the prize for winners is a little statue representing a cat) is an Italian television award first given out in 1971 following the contest "Gran Premio internazionale dello Spettacolo", sponsored by the weekly magazine TV Sorrisi e Canzoni and aired on Canale 5. The prize is a golden cat statue with the network's initials on his face. It was inspired by a cartoon on the television series Super Classifica Show, a cult show in the 1980s and early 1990s.

It could be compared with the People's Choice Award and the TV Guide Award.
