Bristol-born street artist Banksy managed to whip up a whirlwind of chatter about him in the lead up the Oscars ceremony this year.
The artist's documentary Exit Through the Gift Shop was nominated for Best Documentary in this year's awards. The notoriously secretive graffiti artist caused more speculation about him after he reportedly asked the Academy if he could attend the ceremony in disguise.
If the artist did make an appearance he didn't identify himself. In the city on Wednesday his film won the Independent Spirit Award for Best Documentary but Thierry Guetta, who features in the documentary, accepted the award in Banksy's place.
