Good News, Banksy! You're Invited To The Oscars & You Can Dress However You Like!!!

| Filed under: Oscars


We were sort of bummed to hear through the grapevine this week that it was unlikely that Banksy will appear at the Academy Awards this year, despite the fact that his documentary, Exit Through The Gift Shop, is nominated.

We had heard that it was Banksy's wish to come dressed
as a monkey, as to keep his identity a secret, but the Academy wouldn't allow it. However, Academy president Tom Sherak has just come forward to clarify that Banksy has an open invitation to attend dressed as whatever he'd like - provided that he is dressed. He explained to sources:

"The media is making it exciting with all the questions about Banksy. I think it’s all good and if he shows up, he shows up. I won’t stop him."

In other words, hell yes they want the publicity so the crazier the stunt the better!

This still leaves just one problem. If he does come wearing a mask, how will they be able to prove that its really him?!

We guess that's just part of the fun! Ha!

    Why can't he just let them know ahead of time what type of mask he is wearing?

  2. 2

    Even if he showed up without a mask on you couldn't prove it was really him!!! Google Search keywords "The Media Jerk" to read Heartless criticism of the day's biggest celebrity news stories!!

  4. 4

    what would it matter if nobody knows who he is/what he looks like anyways He could show up as himself but nobody would know who he was…THINK perez geeez

  5. 5

    can't they use like a 'secret code word' or 'secret drawing' to know it's him? obv they know each other's contact info.

  6. 6

    if countries are banning the burka throughout then maybe this shouldn't be justified?

  7. 7

    banksy sucks and restrepo is going to win anyway. sorry to disappoint morons.

  8. 8

    Why is he trying to look like Janet Jackson though?

  9. 9

    Does everyone realize that Banksy is a cultural phenomenon? His art work is the most prolific of the last 20 years. It combines liberation with social prejudice and re-thinking the status-quo. The entire point of not knowing who he is, is for us to face our own prejudices and rethink social-norms. He is up there with Gilbert and George not Paris Hilton! Not everyone well known is a celebrity!
