Posted: Updated:

Banksy's movie "Exit Through the Gift Shop" didn't win the Academy Award for Best Documentary at the Oscars, putting to rest the wild speculation of what the famously anonymous British street artist would have done were he to accept the award.

In fact, nobody knows whether Banksy even attended the ceremony or not.
