THE fun-police known as the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences have decided to stop the ratings bonanza that would’ve been Banksy accepting an Oscar in his trademark monkey mask.


“If Banksy isn’t comfortable showing his face on the Kodak stage, Sherak said, then the Academy isn’t comfortable having him on that stage.”


Well we’re not comfortable watching then!


But Banksy will receive his little naked gold man if he wins, because he turned in all the official paperwork the Academy requires, certifying that he will not resell or give away the statuette.


They didn’t say he couldn’t use it in his art!
