Former ‘Hills’ Star Lauren Conrad’s Breaking News: Banksy Invades LA!

Former reality TV star Lauren Conrad star managed to create a media headline that  did not involve the announcement of a new clothing line or the shenanigans of her Hills co-star Heidi Montag, when she tweeted the above picture with the caption:

Is Banksy in LA?

With less than two weeks to go before the Oscar telecast, the graffiti artist Banksy, who is nominated for Best Documentary Film for Exit Through the Gift Shop, is bypassing all the usual methods of communicating with Academy voters like placing an ad in Variety or sending an email blast. Instead, the notorious and little seen artist is believed to be behind graffiti art that has been sprouting up in the LA area. The website Jetsetgraffiti.com is claiming that the work was definitely produced by Banksy himself. For its part, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is worried that if Banksy wins the award he’ll pull a  Marlon Brando, who, in 1972 had a Native American actress accept the Best Actor award on his behalf. The Academy’s executive director, Bruce Davis told thewrap.com:

The fun but disquieting scenario is 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?

Lets hope Banksy will make it an Oscar night to remember.
