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?
