Banksy may be banned from Oscars

6 Comments

Banksys Doku „Exit through the Gift Shop“ ist bekanntlich für den Oscar nominiert und weil der Mann bekanntlich nur maskiert auftritt und das nur sehr, sehr selten, wird er wahrscheinlich von der Verleihung ausgeschlossen. Dear Academy, here’s your banana. Von der HufPo:

Street artist Banksy doesn’t show his face in public — and as a result, the Oscars may kick him to the curb. […]

Academy executive director Bruce Davis talked about the issue to The Wrap. “If that film wins and five guys in monkey masks come to the stage all saying, ‘I’m Banksy!’ Who the hell do we give it to?” he asked rhetorically. Because of those worries, the artist will most likely not be allowed on stage.

“We suggested to them that it might be a good idea that if he did win, one of them would accept in his place – that it would not be dignified for the Academy to have somebody come up wearing a monkey’s head,” Davis said, referring to conversations with the Jaimie D’Cruz, the film’s producer.

    Mein Gott, was ein prüder Schwachsinn. Da hat man als Show mal die Möglichkeit, jüngere Zielgruppen und Medienecho zu erreichen (falls der Fall überhaupt zustande kommt) und dann schlägt man genau in die entgegen gesetzte Kerbe… Hoffentlich taggt Banksy jetzt die Oscar-Halle!

    Ich hoffe dieses Copyright Problem mit Herr Levy klärt sich auf. Banksy ist einer der besten Künstler der letzten Jahre
    und den Oskar hätte er verdient.

    ich könnt mir vorstellen das Thierry Guetta ihn abholt :D

    DVD cover for gay and lesbian comedy movie “Pride” is ‘straight-washed’ for American market

    In case you’re wondering the critically acclaimed comedy is about a group of gay and lesbian activists who supported striking miners in the 1980’s

    The top photo is the USA DVD cover with Lesbians & Gays edited out, the bottom photo is the European version

    The wording has also changed from  ”a London-based group of gay and lesbian activists” to “a group of London-based activists”.
