Egyptian State TV is widely expected to win the award for Best Picture at the Oscars this year after its highly acclaimed portrayal of Egypt over the past couple of weeks.
Indeed, state TV’s cinematic work of fiction was so realistic that millions of Egyptians thought what was being portrayed was actually happening in the real world.
Inside sources told EKT that former Nazi Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels, who has been mysteriously resurrected, is expected to personally hand the award directly to President Hosni Mubarak -- himself a nominee as Best Actor for his role in the political foreign film “Pretending to Reform.”
The Egyptian president is currently starring in another controversial film titled Pride & Stubbornness. This romantic comedy is about an old man who refuses to lend his grown children the keys to his car, even though he suffers from severe cataracts and can barely see well enough to even urinate in the right direction.
While critics remain doubtful of his ability to play this particular role, what is sure is that it will be his last attempt at acting. For now, some of the finest critics still insist he should have instead used his talents in the upcoming short feature Exile & Good Riddance.
