Banksy Takes the Top Prize at the Cinema Eye Documentary Honors

Last night’s fourth annual Cinema Eye Honors, the awards show dedicated entirely to documentary excellence, belonged to street artist Banksy. His film “Exit Through the Gift Shop” took home two awards including the film’s top prize for Outstanding Achievement in Nonfiction Feature Filmmaking and the man himself delivered the acceptance speech of the night. Well, not quite the man himself, since Banksy was a no show (obviously, since nobody outside of one random seller on eBay). But “Gift Shop” producer Jaimie D’Cruz, accepting the award on Banksy’s behalf, read some words the man himself had prepared. And they were fantastic. After some pleasantries, D’Cruz got down to business. I had my tape recorder rolling. Here was Banksy’s speech:

“Now’s not the time for long, rambling speeches. I’ll leave that for the director of ‘Waiting for Superman.’

I’d like to thank the Cinema Eye awards. It’s great to be recognized by people who are so obsessed with the documentary genre — in other words people who are even more socially retarded than myself.

I guess some of you may be getting a bit suspicious about me. How can you know that this award is real? But I’d like to categorically assure you that this evening’s awards are not being staged by actors for a parody I’m making about film awards.

I’d like to thank anyone who worked on the movie. Almost all of them did a great job. And I’d like to dedicate this award to anyone out there who’s ever looked at the state of this world and though: ‘I can’t just stand idly by and watch this happen. I need to get it on tape.’ Thank you and have a good evening.”

The other big winner of the night was “Last Train Home,” Lixin Fan’s documentary about one Chinese couple traveling to their family home to celebrate the New Year. It won three awards — the most of any film — for best production, cinematography, and international feature (i.e. best foreign documentary). Here’s the full list of Cinema Eye winners.

They say that bringing a child into this world is the most treasured and life-fulfilling thing you can do. But once sacrificing all your time, energy, and money into a marginally grateful person wears thin, there’s not much left for fulfillment. And as three moms contending with carpools and PTA meetings, Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, and Kathryn Hahn reject the entire notion of modern motherhood and vow to become Bad Moms, a new film by The Hangover writers Jon Lucas and Scott Moore.

Watch Mila Kunis and her pals join forces against motherhood and uptight school administrator Christina Applegate in the NSFW trailer below. And be sure to catch Mila in her younger days on That ’70s Show every Monday and Tuesday starting at 6P.

Posted by on

Ah, May. A month of blooming flowers, fluttering butterflies, and a shrieking barrage of guilt come Mother’s Day. But rather than bearing the brunt of shame and misery when you can’t see Mom this year, smooth things over with an official IFC Mother’s Day card. They say everything you’re too busy to say over the phone, like would it kill you to ever dial a number and talk to the woman who gave you life? And would it be the end of the world if you found a better job and settled down with someone nice? But no, it’s fine. She’ll make do with one of these cards, featuring characters from Portlandia, Maron and Comedy Bang! Bang!. Check them out below, and be good to mom this year.

5 Times Maron’s Dave Anthony Had the Perfect Response

Maron returns May 4th at 9P on IFC.

Posted by on

Dave Anthony, standup and podcaster extraordinaire, has stealthily become a one-liner machine on Maron, playing Marc’s deadpan “frenemy.” While Dave may often say the wrong thing, we always seem to relate to him in some secret, shameful way. Before you catch Dave on the season premiere of Maron this Wednesday, May 4th at 9P, check out a few times it felt like he was living our life — and messing it up just as much as we are.

1. That moment when we realize no one is listening to our podcast.

2. Or when we remember that feelings are just nature’s way of saying it’s time to eat more ice cream.

3. That feeling you get when you realize you’ll do anything if someone else is paying.

4. For those times when we want to fight the power.

5. And of course, for those times when we realize that life is about accomplishing the little things.
