Best Documentary has evolved into one of the most anticipated categories at this Sunday’s Oscar ceremony because of one man: Banksy. The famous street artist and director of the nominated film Exit Through the Gift Shop prefers to keep his identity a secret so the instant the film was nominated, certain questions began to arise. Would Banksy show up to the Oscars? Would he plan some kind stunt? Would he show up in a monkey mask? Well, that last scenario was Banksy’s plan but now the street artist has flat out been denied by the Academy for fear of “copycat gatecrashers” both on the red carpet and on stage should he win. (Which just might happen, due to the film’s weekend win of the Eddie for Best Editing of a Documentary.)

In even more disheartening Banksy news, several of his latest works that popped up in the Los Angeles area have been removed or defaced. We’ve got the details and videos after the jump, plus we discuss why the Oscars actually need Bansky. Read More »

B-Movie: a short film about Banksy

A few sites today posted a a short documentary titled B-Movie: a short film about Banksy. The video, which was posted on Vimeo under the user name “Robin Gunningham” was quickly removed. You might reccognize the name because it was published in UK’s newspaper The Mail in July 2008, claiming to be the real indentity of the street artist.. The Vimeo account features the following description:

Robin wishes he has painted on a large variety of walls and buildings, none of which belonged to him. He wishes he has exhibited in the British Museum, the Tate and the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art, none of whom invited him.

Strange, huh? We found a duplicate copy on YouTube, which features the following description:

The B-Movie is a fourteen minute mini documentary about the infamous street artist Banksy and how he started out as a graffiti writer. Banksy has really launched off heavily this year, he has a movie out, art exhibits that make over 100k a show. He has made numerous achievements that hit the media and til this day only a hand full of people know his real identity. The  documentary features Interviews with 3D of Massive Attack, Damien Hirst, some of his friends and many more.

If this seems like a great supliment to Exit Through The Giftshop, thats exactly what it is. Included on the DVD release of the film, this 14-minute documentary gives you a better look at the street artist known as Banksy. Watch it now embedded after the jump.

Exit Through The Giftshop is not only one of the best documentaries of 2010, but it’s one of the best movies of the year. The documentary which is credited to the elusive street art icon Banksy is up for an Oscar, but The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences isn’t sure how to handle the situation. He has worn disguises in the past (dark hooded sweatshirts, monkey masks) and has even sent others to fill in for his absense. The filmmaker did not show up for the annual Oscar luncheon, but if the film wins, will he go up on stage?

Last week it was announced that Exit through the Gift Shop is one of five films nominated for the Best Documentary Oscar at the 83rd Annual Academy Awards. This week we’ve begun to hear reports that Banksy (the credited director of the street art documentary) is beginning his award campaign the only way he knows how to — street art. Or could this be the work of Mr. Brainwash? This looks a bit too sloppy to be a Banksy production, and MBW has been using Stormtroopers in his work recently. What do you think?
