In a move sure to be debated for years to come, Tinseltown’s prestigious “Best Actor” Oscar award recipient has been announced months in advance of the traditional broadcast of the awards show.
This year’s winner will be Tyler James Williams, star of the popular television sitcom “Everybody Hates Chris”. Tyler wins the award for his possible portrayal of President Barack Hussein Obama in a movie of the President’s life (expected working title “The One”), speculated to be filmed sometime during the next ten to fifteen years.
When questioned about their controversial choice, members of The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) explained that their decision was based on the fact that young Mr. Williams resembles Mr. Obama, and is sure to be picked for the part of the movie that is surely to be made of the popular President’s sure to be extraordinary life and achievements.
“The Academy wishes to take center front in the fight against racism and hatred in America, and this is what we can do to advance the ideals of equality, peaceful coexistence, and brotherhood” – said Academy President Tom Sherak, dressed in a blue pinstriped suit, and sporting a fashionable “Free Polanski” button on his lapel.
Director Spike Jonze is protesting the Academy, claiming that racism played a part in his not getting the Best Director nod for the possibility of directing “The One”.
“I mean, who else would direct it?” said Jonze. “Ima gonna let Tyler get his props but I’m jus sayin, seriously…they gonna let Opie direct this movie?”
Standing near Jonze in support, rapper Kanye West had no comments.
